POST failure(ASUS p8z68 v pro, i7 2600k)

After I installed my aftermarket cooler(xigmatek aios80dp) I think my CPU has busted. The system's lights and fans spin up just fine, but then they turn off a second later(as the CPU LED comes on). Then it turns on again, but now the DRAM_LED is on.
I'm tempted to say it's the CPU that's gone because of the fact that it's what causes the crash, but I can't be sure.
Thank you.

  1. CPU's rarely have any problems. It's most likely something else. What kind of PSU do you have?
  2. dram light usually means something is wrong with the ram.

    if you have 2 sticks, try each one seperately. or try a stick of ram you know i good (another computers stick)
  3. I had a similar problem on my ASUS MB when I switched cases with the DRAM LED. Clear the CMOS by removing the battery on the board for about 30 minutes.
  4. you have a err code number?
