I have all the parts but i haven't built it yet. Well i tried to do a test build with jus the motherboard, vid card, cpu, and the power supply but it wont turn on. I think i did sumthing wrong. If they are compatible can you refer me to some computer building video tutorials that might help me out with this. Thankyou for reading.

  1. Hi there,

    Yes they are all compatible. It's not the best build in terms of being balanced, but it's workable.

    Here's a decent guide on putting together a computer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_56kyib-Ls

    Have you checked that everything is plugged in? Have you tried without the videocard installed?

    M
  2. what do you mean by not turning on?

    no power at all? or you see no display? are the HSFspinning when you turn it on? do you see any light lit on your motherboard?
  3. im so freaking stupid. i shouldve read the manual first. i thought i was missing a psu connector wen connecting the power to the motherboard. then i was watching a video on building a comp and i realize that sum of the plugs can separate. something so simple i missed cuz i didnt read the manual. lol. sorry for all this stupid.

    *marshalbradley you said its not balanced. is it bad. is there sumthing wrong. i kno i need a better vid card but im broke. i shelled out more then 1000 so far.
  4. Haha, don't worry it's an easy mistake to make.

    No it's fine, it should run stuff well. Personally I would have bought a more up to date CPU (Ivy Bridge) and spent less on it (maybe an i3, since you can't overclock with that motherboard anyway), so that I could afford a better video card. It's hard to change that sort of thing now though, and the 650 Ti should handle stuff fairly well, just not maxed out.

    actuall i hav both an i3 and an i5. a friend told me i should get a quad core inted of duo core cuz it helps with multi tasking.

    i bought the i3-3220 first but then i bought the i5 cuz i couldnt return the i3. so im stuck with an extra cpu i cant return.
  7. i was watching the newegg build a pc part 2 on youtube, and then used a screwdriver to short out sumthing to make the pc beep. i dont know where on the motherboard i should short out to make a the pc beep.

    Ouch. You should have come here first before you bought. Paying $1K or more for a system without doing any research is a bad idea. You got a poor quality PSU (even for Corsair), 1.65V RAM, an unlocked CPU with a locked motherboard, a case from a junk manufacturer, and a very low end GPU.

    If something isn't working I am guessing your RAM because Sandy and Ivy Bridge builds require 1.5V, and that Kingston RAM is rated at 1.65V.
