Hi guys, I am a very long time reader of this site and finally broke down and made an account, in an attempt to get some help.
I took the trip up to my local Microcenter (an hour away) to pick up a 3750k and a AsRock Extreme 4. My excitement was killed will I couldn't boot. I troubleshot every thing that I could think of and everything that Google could tell me. I just had to take the trip up there again to get a replacement.
They told me that the motherboard had bent pins on the CPU part, so they wouldn't replace it. Blah blah, I eventually them to sell me another one for the same bundle price. Came back, same exact problem. I even went and bought a replacement PSU to remedy the problem. Still having it.
All I get is CPU fan, and power supply fan. No booting with, or without my discrete GPU (7850). Checked 8 pin and 24pin connections like no other. Switched out my ram into each individual slot.
Is there something I may have missed, or did I just get screwed out of 200 dollars for both motherboards?
