I understand that this topic has been hashed out plenty on this forum, but I figure that since my system specs are different that there may be something else to address.
So I have built a new system and am having trouble getting it to boot. When I press the power button the fans spin for maybe half a second and I also hear the hum of the PSU during that half second... then silence. Pushing the power button again does nothing; I cannot achieve the half-second boot result again unless I turn the PSU switch to 0 and unplug the PSU, wait a few seconds, then plug the PSU back in and turn the switch to 1. All parts are new (never been used, not even lightly) and nothing was perceivably damaged during installation. All caps looks fine, no strange odors, liquids, or powders.
My specs are:
Mobo - ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0
CPU - AMD 6-core FX-6100 Zambezi @ 3.3 GHz 14 MB cache
PSU - Cougar 1050W COUGAR-GX1050
RAM - 16 GB Corsair Vengeance (2 x 8) (PC3-12600)
GPU - Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 1 GB 128-bit GHz Edition (installed on the PCI-e x16 slot)
OS - None as of yet
Any troubleshooting suggestions?
