This is my first build and either I messed something up pretty good or missed something really stupid and simple. I installed the main components of my build into my case and tried to power up the unit to see if everything posted, but whenever i power it up (I've only connected the header to the case power switch) the power supply fan and the CPU cooler fan spin for a few seconds (~5 secs or so) and then stop. I have installed the memory, cpu, cpu cooler, mobo (obviously), and GPU and plugged them into the power supply as appropriate.
Currently in the case:
- core I5 2500k
- hypermaster 212 plus
- gskill ripjaws 16 gb DDR3 1600
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX560
- Gigabyte mobo (Z68MA-D2H-B3)
Any pointers as to where to start looking would be helpful
i do have the stock cooler, and I did use the thermal paste. PSU is a corsair HX750W professional series. The RAM is seated and the clasps/clips are all locked into place
I just now tried the other connector (the PSU gives me an 8 pin that splits in half) from my PSU to the ATX 12V (4 pin) on the mobo and I got the machine to post. I suppose I didn't have it seated properly or (despite the manual), the mobo really does care which one of the 2 you pick.
Thanks for the replies ... my own stupidity to blame. Kinda like being at work ... as soon as you ask for help, it starts working :-)
