That power supply's 8 pin for the motherboard splits into 2 separate 4 pin. Just use the 4 pin side that lines up properly with the connector on the motherboard.

You have the external PCI-E power connected to the graphics card? Make sure all cables for the drives are properly plugged in also. If you can get into the bios, go and set the settings to default.

well, then i need to connect everything up then? if i want to get into BIOS, right? because i will need kayboard mouse etc. But shouldnt the settings be set to default? since it a new mobo. Yes i have 2 PCI-E cables into the graphics card.

I test run it, mean i put mobo+PSU+RAM+CPU+GPU together on mobo's box. checking if everything is alright.

I tried using my old mobo and cpu, and the same problem occours. mhm, So it have to be either RAM GPU or PSU.
