Ok I'm using a Asus Crosshair Formula V motherboard I hooked up everything and everything seems properly put together like in the instructions. But when I put in the ram I get RED LEDs no matter what I do. Orange LED Happens on my CPU LED. I tried to see if anything is wrong but I can't since the fan won't budge. When I turn on the computer everything seems to power up but when I hook it up to a display nothing happens and says I'm not detected. I don't know what I did wrong I have the 8pin and pin ATX power connectors plugged in and I even got the system speaker attached. I need help I want to start gaming soon as possible.
I tried most of those methods. (I couldn't check the CPU since the damn stock Fan wouldn't budge but I assume it's fine since it fell into place like butter.) I think it's a RAM problem since it appears that my motherboard doesn't support the RAM I have.and that the CPU LED does turn green but it seems to be orange because of the RAM not being detected due to compatibility.
