Hey guys, I have the ASrock extreme3 z77 board with mushkin enhanced ddr3 1600 mHz 8 gb a stick version. I thought I had some problems with the motherboard, RMA'ed it, and it still wont boot. I thought it was my CPU at first after I tried it with the new motherboard, but turns out my RAM isn't on the compatibility list for my board. Could this be a factor? or is it just my cpu and I should RMA it, because of the fact that it may have ruined the pins on my motherboard if it is broken?

What happen when you try to turn on you system? Is there any light/cpu fan spinning? Any beep code you here?
no, just a whine from the psu that cuts out for a second once I hit the switch
That means fan and led on for a sec? Right? Its more likely a faulty psu. Try with another psu first/ check the psu to other system or your's friend's pc.
