So, I bought a whole bunch of parts off newegg to build a new computer the other day. I threw it all together and when I turned it on, the computer wouldn't boot up to the motherboard starting screen or anything--just a black screen. It didn't even beep. I took the computer apart and put it back together a million times and tried unplugging and plugging in a million things to see if one of my parts were shorting the MOBO. Nothing worked. I assumed it was the CPU or MOBO. I returned the CPU and MOBO for a replacement (cant get a refund) and I am still waiting on the new ones to come in. When I called intel, the guy said that the CPU I had wouldn't work with the RAM I had (Or maybe he said it was the MOBO.. cant remember). Anyways, I just want someone to verify if the parts I have will work together and give me some answers as to what could be wrong/solutions, like what RAM would be best for me?
Here are the parts I have:
RAM: G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-2133C11D-8GAO
