I have been trying to build this computer for the past week now and can not get it to work... This is pretty long so hold on. I first tried it with everything in and couldn't get anything to show, no signals and no beeps... then I reset cmos and started it up and it gave me two beeps, Cmos setting error -_-.. took out battery for 5 mins and then it went back to page 1, nothing. I proceeded to breadboard it and now all I have is the cpu/hsf, mobo and psu in and the case power stuff plugged in. Ive been trying and trying and can not get it to do anything... ill be posting the specs after this and Ive read some questions already and will try to answer all the questions you have for me. If you could help me out i would really appreciate it... THANK YOU!

Ive got a few more things to add, first off I have no idea which cord gives the POST sounds for the case.. is it the HD audio one? I was never really able to check. also I previously tried to install the cpu on another mobo about a month ago, I got rid of that mobo and bought the gigabyte one but never took of the HSF off the CPU so I couldn't lower the latch to lock the cpu in place.. could that be the problem?
Because if that is what you are saying then yes this could well be the problem. Remove heatsink assy from the cpu. Refit the cpu in socket locking it securely into place. Refit heatsink assy to cpu (adding thermal paste if needed) then power up and see what happens.
Alright ill try that.. I was going to but I just needed to know if i had to reapply thermal paste on the HSF or if i could just plop it back on quickly. Ill get back to you later about it but I have work soon. Thanks!
