CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155
Memory:G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1333
Video Card: HD 7950 3 GB
Power Supply Rosewill capstone 550w

I have all of those plugged in with the 8 pin cpu and 24 pin power both plugged in along with the Gpu. I am getting no beeps or splash, but both the fan and the Gpu fans kick on and the motherboard indicator says D7. Anyone have any pointers or do I have dead parts?

More about : test build splash beep

D7 means no input devices found. Did you plug in your keyboard/mouse?

make sure your front panel power button, reset button, hard drive activity led is plugged into the motherboard's header. as to how connect these read up on the mobo's manual

sir build the pc proper way with a pc case as you risk damaging the parts, connect your keyboard and mouse as said above with monitor plugged in and then you can judge if it boots or not

if the mobo has power and reset button on it as some fancier mobos do then yea, if not then it wont boot unless you connect the front panel stuff

A2 is because you don't have a hard drive plugged in. You're getting ahead of yourself. Just put it all together in the case and you won't have these problems.

I would only recommend doing that if for some reason you think a part is bad. I doubt any of your stuff is bad so good luck with the build. I'm sure it will work out for you. I havea tip for you: Don't use Sata A0 or A1. Those are hotswappable and you will have an icon in the taskbar for you to safely eject whatever drive is plugged in those. Start on Sata 0.

Actually I was glad I did an external build first, especially on my first build. You get to make sure all your components are working properly and it also gives you some perspective as to how it will all fit and connect in your case. There is no harm in doing it as long as your careful, after all, it would suck to get everything strapped into your case and find out something ain't working then. Troubleshooting bad components at that point isn't much fun (especially if it is a bad component and not user error).
