First build. No POST. Tried the troubleshoot. Help! Tags: Motherboards CPUs ATX Build Last response: June 28, 2012 4:17 PM in Motherboards Share lkzp June 28, 2012 3:55:18 PM Hi, Im doing my first custom build today. I installed the CPU, RAM, GPU and hooked up the PSU to the ATX, the ATX 12 and the GPU. Then I turned on the motherboard. No beep!! I knew it wouldnt be so easy. So I started removing bits. I got down to just the cpu (and cooler) with the ATX and Atx 12 plugged it. If i switch on the motherboard with this set up the cpu fan runs, and all LED turn on and stay on. It keeps running like this until I switch it off. Now, If I remove the ATX12 power and turn on the mobo it boots, runs for a sec (fan and LEDs) and then turns off, it trys a couple of times to turn on after this. If I try to boot without the cpu installed and both ATXs it does the same (runs momentarily) Whats the problem? Any help would really be appreciated. Oh the motherboard is a Gigabyte GA Z68AP D3 and the CPU is an Intel i5 3570k. The PSU is a cheap CIT 750w psu.

Correction: It runs for about 10 secs then shuts down then starts again and repeats. CPU overheating? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
