So, I just finished putting together my first home build in...well, years. Here are the specs:
P67 Sabertooth mobo
3x4 Corsair Vengeance RAM
EVGA GTX 560 Ti 448 Classified
750w OC Z ZT PSU
128gb Crucial M4 SSD
LG 24x DVD writer
Antec Kuhler 920
Cooler Master HAF 922 case.
....so I put that all together...everything so far so good, relatively speaking. Go to boot it up, and...a few red lights pop up around the mobo. No big deal I thought. I get 1 long beep 5 short beeps. According to Asus, that's a CPU problem.
I've reset the CMOS switch, I've checked the CPU fan cable, the CPU/12V_ATX power cable, and I've even removed the CPU and put it back (not that I could see anything off)....but nothing has changed. Every time I attempt to boot, I get nothing more than red lights flashing on the mobo, and the 1 long beep 5 short beeps.
Any ideas on troubleshooting this? Does this sound like a bad CPU, a bad mobo? What?
And no...it doesn't get to POST...it doesn't even get to any video output... I thought I did sufficient research prior to building to verify everything SHOULD be compatible...
Any help on this would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks in advance!
OK, but the two before that specify a combination of long and short beeps. If, for example, one long and three short means graphics card, as it does, that does not mean that three short means anything. I remain unconvinced.
