AsRock Z77 Extreme4 turning on problems

I recently installed the Z77 Extreme4, and I've plugged in the System Panel Header wires from my case. This is pretty much all my board would need to power on, correct? I had everything on. I'm really just trying to turn it on now before I get an IDE to SATA adapter cable for my disk drives.

Any help would be appreciated and I can provide pictures if necessary.

Pressed that one. I do have the 8-pin and 24-pin plugged in. If it means anything, the 8pin was split into 2 4-pins for my last mobo. I'll post pics shortly.

Make sure that 4/8-pin CPU power is a 12v ATX connector. Not the one for the GPU.

I can't unplug them from the case, sadly; they're trapped in a small mesh cage at the front of the case. The case is quite old, so it might have just died on me.

I used the stand offs and I checked the GPU cables and suprise! I didn't have my GPU plugged in. Could that have stopped a power on?

Pics are taking a while, sorry.

Check the PSU with paper clip.

I meantthe connection to GPU : ) HDMI or DVI? Or the one on the mobo?

But, now check the PSU first.

The paper clip doesn't exclude the PSU. It just show, that it starts. That is all.

Before u install everything in the case to find out that its not working.

Can u put it outside and on the paper box it came in.

With RAM + GPU card installed and plugged in the LCD.

If that doesn't work, I would think its the PSU or the mobo.

One of them could be dead.

By outside you mean unplug all the cables and then connect the monitor to it while it's not plugged to anything else?(Just making sure)

No. Remove it out of the case, the mobo and PSU.

Plug it in the mobo outside of the case on the box u got it in.

CPU has to be installed. Check if it is correctly installed. Than the RAM, also installed.

Than the PSU connected with 8pin/24pin/CPU fan connected to the mobo as well.

Than connect the GPU to your monitor, plug the monitor in the power.

It should boot in the BIOS only.

If not, its bad PSU or mobo.

Gonna do this, just don't have time today. My PSU came with an 8-pin, but my old mobo had a 4-pin, so I split it(like the directions said) into 2 4-pins. Does this make a difference?

I plugged everything back in and put in the power plug. My headset lights came on and the LAN Port LED flashed orange, which means "data activity". Any insight on where to go from here?

So I know this thread is from last year, but I am curious if you ever got this resolved. I just purchased the same board, and I am having the exact same issues. Paperclip test passes, but nothing happens when I press the Power Button.

Yeah, I just got it replaced with the warranty I bought with the board. New one worked like a charm.

I know this is an old one but I have the same problem. I have a Corsair CX600M PSU and tried the test. The fan did not turn on. I have a Roswell Extreme RX750-D-B PSU I borrowed that is working and no power at all. I think the MB is bad. I am using the on board DVI for video. I could not find and separate on board GPU power connection on the MB.

EDIT: I wanted to post an update. I did get the power supply to run.

http://

So the PSU suddenly ran for the test and then I got it to powered up the computer. I did not have the drives connected so I went into CMOS. I shut down and started up twice with no drives. Connected the drives and then no power. Odd is when it first worked for the paperclip test it was connected for about 3 seconds before it started. I think it is the power supply but tried a working Rosewill with the paperclip test and no power.. Not sure if the MB or drives fried the power supply.
