Hey, guys. I just rebuilt inside a new case. The problem I'm having is that when I turn it on, the green LEDs on my mobo come on for a split second, then turn off. No fans start. Nothing. The OC button, Start, and Reset button on the mobo all stay on, but nothing else.
The build components are:
Asus RoG Crosshair V mobo
AMD FX-6100 CPU
Cooler Master V8 heatsink
ATI Radeon 6950 GPU
16gb Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1333 RAM (4x4)
1350 watt PSU EarthLink or something around that brand.
Antec DF-35 Case
120 GB Intel 320 series SSD
1TB Western Digital 7200 rpm HDD
Some random disk drive
All the power cables to the mobo are plugged in. The only cable I'm honestly not entirely sure about is a three pin from the PSU to the mobo. It had a spot, so i plugged it in. Any help would be useful at this point.
MBs usually have pretty good instructions on how to set them up. I bet you plugged your 3-pin power in fan pins. Also some MBs don't start without having plugged in your CPUs fan ( check that you've plugged it in the right place ).
The Mullocks is in the manual. But, okay. It did the same thing without the Mullocks plugged in before, because I thought that was weird. This isn't my first walk through the park. I came here for possibly something I didn't think of. Not to be talked down to. Next time, I won't bother. Thanks for.making me feel unwelcome.
Just checked the manual, and there are 4 power connectors, the 24 pin (in the usual spot), the 8 pin (top left), a 4 pin (top centerish), and the molex you've mentioned. Have you missed that 4 pin at the top? (given you didn't mention it earlier)
Afraid it is a power input. It may not be needed (given that in this case there's no SLI), but that shouldn't mean the board is screwed by having it connected (though maybe the 3 pin has caused damage, i'd rather test and make sure before binning the mobo).
