Hello, i have a bit of a problem, I had just received some new pc components for a custom pc, when i was installing the cpu the first time I didn't realize that the gold triangle goes at the bottom left corner instead of the top right corner like i had always been used to. I had bent many pins on the socket and sent it in to asus to be repaired, they replaced the socket and i received it n the mail just a few days ago. I had finished putting it together and when i powered it on for the first time the red cpu led lit up and then shut off after about five seconds. I am worried that I had fried the cpu when i tried to start it up with the cpu seated incorrectly, although I checked it for burn marks and the distinguishable odor of a burnt up cpu, but it looked absolutely fine. I have tried to put the ram in different slots, still nothing, reseated the cpu, still nothing. I really need to fix this fast without spending a whole lot of money because if i cant use it then my only option is an imac with an i3 and 4 gigs of ram :sarcastic:  . Anybody who could give me some troubleshooting would be super, greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!

Hi, If the CPU fan does spin when powering up and the CPU led still red, then I would RMA the CPU too.

Well I actually built a PC with the same motherboard, processor, and the same brand of ram (I used 16gb instead of 8) and I had to keep removing the motherboard to put more stuff on (didn't plan ahead) and with all this unplugging and unscrewing, I forgot to plug in the CPU power, which presented the same problem of the red CPU light. Make sure you have the line from the Power Supply plugged in the 8-pin connector above the CPU.
