New Build Turns On & Then Off Tags: New Build New Build Systems Last response: November 17, 2012 1:42 AM in Systems Share Ktank November 16, 2012 8:19:31 AM So it was my first build and I'm mind boggled, I spent over 5-6hours putting it together slowly (with breaks and what not) The fans turn on and PSU runs but it keeps turning on and off (Fan has lights so I see it blinking), HDMI output shows nothing onto the IPS Monitor Is there a system check list I can use to recheck everything? Power switch/reset sw works fine as I know thats working but I do have some connectors still left unconnected and unsure where it goes ASRock Extreme6 Z77 2 x 4 GB Vengeance LP Black DDR3 Gigabyte Over clocked HD7970 GPU Corsair TX650M PSU 2 x 500GB SATAIII 1 x 250GB SSD NZXT Phantom 410 Case Thanks a lot!
