Need help with Mobo and new GPU.

Hey there, I just got my new PSU (Corsair 750) and my new GPU (Sapphire HD 7950 Vapor-X) today and after installing them my monitor, keyboard, and mouse didn't want to work. (Using Razer gear and it's not lighting up.)

Here's what I have in my system so far:

Mobo: A960M-M2
CPU: AMD FX-4100
PSU: Corsair TX750
RAM: 8GB
GPU: Sapphire HD 7950 Vapor-X

Before I installed the new PSU and GPU I was using a Nvidia GT 545 and some random 400W PSU that I had from ages ago and everything worked fine.
I checked all the connections and they were good, but the keyboard, monitor, and mouse weren't doing anything.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

More about need mobo
  1. Try only the PSU and only the GPU at a time, likely one of them
  2. Could it be that the motherboard just won't run the card due to the motherboard being a micro? Or does that have nothing to do with it?
    I swapped out the new GPU and PSU for my old ones and again nothing would run.
  3. Motherboard format should not be an issue, also since the old parts aren't working anymore, something else is up

    Check for a motherboard short by breadboarding

  4. Alrighty, I'll start on that as soon as I get up tomorrow and then I'll get back to here.

    Thank you so much!
  5. No problem!
  6. Apparently both the Mobo and CPU were shot. So I'm sending those back for a full refund.
    Already got a new Mobo just trying to decide on a new CPU.
    Looking between a Phenom II X4 965 BE and an FX-6300. I'm guessing the 6300 will be better in the long run for OCing.
  7. The FX6300 will be better for long run but the phenom is still pretty good

    AMD will be releasing new Steamroller ARCH in fall 2013
  8. Yea, I'm getting the 6300 and 212 Evo with the refund. Just something to replace that damn 4100.

    Any news on how good Steamroller will be?
  9. Its rumored to be at least 30% faster
  10. Sounds like a good deal if you ask me. xP

    Thanks for the help! I appreciate it! :)
