Motherbord shows no sign of power

System Specs:
i5-3750k (yet to be installed)
8GB HyperX DDR3 (yet to be installed)
OCZ ModXstream 600w
Gigabyte GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3.


I connected the 20+4 and the Other power connector to my motherboard, but none of the LED's light. I know that my power supply is working because it powers all of the case fans. What might be the problem?

  1. The CPU and RAM NEEDS to be installed. It won't do ANYTHING otherwise.
  2. The LED's on the mobo won't even light if the RAM and CPU is not in?

    Well, not with the CPU not installed, it won't. If the CPU was installed, but still no RAM, it would probably at least give you a RAM error light, but without the CPU, it won't do anything (lights etc.).

  5. I'm having the same problem, the standby lights on the board do not come up at all and the PSU comes up doing the paperclip test. Did you have any luck?
