Hi there, I've just finished building my first gaming pc and when I tried to turn it on nothing happened. Only the GPU LED turned on (bright white but not the leds that iluminate the strix logo). Ive tested the PSU via the paperclip method outside of the case and the PSU fan turned on. I've tried testing the motherboad outside the case (using a key to start the power via the power switch pins), however nothing happened no sound or anything. Here are the specs for my build:
Motherboard: Asus h110m plus
GPU: Asus strix 980ti
RAM: 8gb crucial
CPU: Intel i5 6500
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master 212 evo
PSU: EVGA 600b bronze rated
I don't know what next step to take as it seems like any of those parts can be defective. I would really appreciate any suggestions. Thankyou.
UPDATE: I have got the motherboard working and a fan by unplugging the CPU power supply. Does that mean the CPU is defective?
