Hi, i am building this new rig. I am almost done. In fact, the only thing remaining for it to be functionnal is the CPU. I plugged it just now without the CPU to see if it powered on but it did not. I saw that the power led does light up tough. But none of the fans or the power supply fan did turn on. Not a sound or anything. I was wondering if it's because there's no CPU or if i should contact ASrock. The Power supply has not been used for two years and it's an antec earthwatt 500. It was working fine last time i used it tough.
hmm not sure why you would power it on with no CPU? I am sure all mobos are different but it maybe wont boot without CPU. why dont you just put the CPU in and try again - if it works great, if not then its most likely wiring/psu, but you can investigate from that point and post back here.
Just wanted to see if it turned on at least. I'm buying components whenever i have the money for it. Over time. I realize now that it complicates things when you can't test any component until your build is complete. until then, waranty wears off.
