Yes. I've started from scratch three times (with both boards). Going step by step to make sure I did not miss a connection.
CPU inserted, heat sink added to that. Plugged in cpu fan.
Inserted one stick of RAM.
Connected 24 pin from PSU. Connected 4 pin (on the ECS) and 6 pin (on MSI) power connectors from PSU.
plugged in PCIe card. Connected VGA to vid card.
Connected power cable to PSU.
Pressed PWRSWCH, PSU fans spins, CPU heat sink fan spins...
Monitor light stays yellow, never turning green. Not even giving a 'No Signal' reading.
Am I missing anything? Is there something that needs to be plugged in I am not? I listed these in the order I did them, is there a chance it's the order? I'm racking my brain to figure out something that I missed, because I can not believe that coincidentally I would have two mobo's die at the exact same time. or two CPUs, or all four die.
