Asus P8P67-M Pro won't post after CPU heat sink replacement.

Hello, I got a few fans and the cooler master GeminII 564 for my i5 build. After installing with MX-4 thermal paste and extreme care, I have rewired everything back and had it ready to go. Mobo's red LED comes on and CPU, case fans, Graphics card and psu spin up, but theres no 'beep' for the post. The Red Led is for 'DRAM', and that stays on constantly. I'm not sure what's causing it, but I'm panicking because it was running fine before adding these fans. Please help me!!!

    :(. I tried all of that, to no avail. I reseated and reapplied the CPU and thermal paste, reset the CMOS, and cleaned the RAM slots. Is it the memory, PSU, CPU, or mobo? This really sucks.
  5. tried changing the rams' places? also did you try cleaning the rams them selves?

    Yeah switched them all four ways, cleaned RAM and sockets, and rewired everything. Same result. Is there anything else I can do that you can think of?
  7. does the cooler come with a backplate?
  8. Yes, and tightened down evenly, diagonally.
  9. on the backplate,insert four nylon/silicon washers (Maplins) on each screw. to stop backplate from making any metal to metal contact with the motherboard ,see if that helps
  10. There's a sort of almost fiberglass padding on the feet (that press into the mobo) and the back (That presses the case). They're not meant to come off, but I'll add some washers if I can. Will report back.
  11. did it work?
  12. Nope, no dice :( I'm at a loss right now. The only difference I got is that it dosent reboot once and then idle, it boots and idles (before POST). Should I call for the RMA or am I screwed?
  13. before you do that, did you try clearing the CMOS using the jumper? follow your manual to do that and see if it fixes the problem
  14. ALSO! the 4 or 8 pin power cable that plugs in by the processor (CPU_FAN port) is connected?
  15. Best answer
    try following this check list and see if it helps , i kinda ran outta ideas and i just remembered it now xD

  16. Yes, reseated battery and cleared it with the jumper. No signs of life.
  17. try the checklist then but first make sure the power cable is pluged in the right place
  18. If you remove all the memory .... is the motherboard beep or not beep....

    also is it still have teh red led stay on the memory test... after you do all the testing..
  19. I POSTED! Thanks so much h3sham, I just reseated, messed with the ram, Etc, and it booted correctly, no problems here. Running 30 deg. cooler (F) THANK YOU!
