Hi, What CPU? Is the CPU fan spinning when starting the board? Is a case speaker (beeper) connected?

Welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums,
I'm confused here, what indication/why do you say everything boots but no beeps or video? If no beep or video, I would say it is not booting hence my confusion.
I think I need clarification there, also, what CPU do you have installed?

The 5600k is one of the listed CPU's so that should not be a factor... lemme look into it some, perhaps bent CPU pins but if you don't have thermal compound there to replace the heatsink after checking that... if you do have some thermal compound available, it is worth checking.

I do have thermal paste on the heatsink. So maybe that could be something to check into. However I layed the cpu in place perfectly and did not have to force it at all. I do have a buddy from my work (the computer tech) coming over to take a look at it to see if he knows anything, so ill let you know more as soon as I can. Thanks a lot guys, and C12friedman especially

Thank you so much, I also have a question.
When 4 ram slots are avaliable does it matter what position they go into.
And 1 last thing. Could drivers be an issue

On many motherboards which ram slots are occupied does make a difference. According to your manual, the black ram slot closest to the CPU DIMM A1 should be occupied first, then the other black slot DIMM B1.
Drivers won't be an issue until you get your OS installed

Mkay. Back yet again.
Problem was the cpu pins. There was one missing rather then bent. I purchased a new cpu and power supply ( the case I bought was to big to hook the 4 pin into it, wire wouldn't reach)
So after hooking everything is hooked up, I plug in my psu and turn on my moniter (vga slot) Nothing appeared on the screen again, and now there is a red light where my "memok!" Button is, it stays on for about 3 seconds and the blue led in my psu blinks 5 or 6 times. Then the whole system shuts down.
Any ideas?
