3 motherboards, 2 CPU's, won't post, beep, or display

Xigmatek Elysium Black CCC-HSA0DS-U01 All Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Super Tower Computer Case
Intel Core i7-2600K 3.4 GHz 8 MB Cache Socket LGA1155 Processor
Corsair Vengeance Blue 16 GB PC3-12800 1600mHz DDR3 240-Pin SDRAM Dual Channel Memory Kit
Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold (SPG) 1000 Watts Modular Power Supply
EVGA GeForce GTX 590 Classified 3072 MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 3DVI/Mini-Display Port SLI Ready

A couple SSD's, and a HDD


I've gone through 2x Asus P8Z68 Deluxe, it was showing a red CPU light so I then switched out the CPU, and it still didn't work.

And today I exchanged the P8Z68 for a ASRock Z68 Extreme7 Gen3.

I have tried every combination of ram (1 stick, 2 sticks, 4 sticks), every PCI Express slot, with and without a video card, without memory at all... and I can't even get a beep.

Right now, I've got:
a) 1 stick of ram in A1
b) video card in PCI Express, with connections from power supply
c) Power supply connections: CPU Fan, Main motherboard power, 2x video card - nothing else plugged in
d) Nothing else plugged into the motherboard (no drives, or case connections)

I've reset the CMOS 100 times. Taken out the battery and put it back in. Checked all connections and made sure they were firm.

No post, no beep, no display.

Please help :(

  1. wow, thats some bad luck you got there..
    are you using the stock HSF (cpu cooler) or an aftermarket one?
    also have you made sure EVERY connection on the motherboard is correctly plugged in?
    maybe a loose cable (or faulty) is causing you trouble
  2. I'm testing it using two monitors btw. One is HDMI and the other is DVI
  3. I'm using a 1000W Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold
  4. Did you end up having any luck with your problem? I'm having the same issue with my Asus board P8Z68 deluxe / gen 3
