Check your toggle switch on the back of the ps and the power switch connection to the board. Not sure? Then remove the leads and use a plain flat screwdriver to move around the case cluster of pins on the board until the system fires up. The ram you selected will work with most boards. If only one stick is not seated all the way in, your board may not post. You may try just one stick in dimm slot one. For more tips, list your complete system specs or checkout these videos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A7IPTHwsrwo.

According to the cpu support section for your board, you'll need bios version 0813 to use the fx-6100. If your board led light goes on and the fans spin when you try powering up, you may have to use an older am3 cpu to flash the bios. But don't do it unless you have to. If it goes wrong, you'll end up with a dead board.
