Hi, I just finished building my new PC. I have an ASUS Maximus VI Gene motherboard. All of my PSU cables are properly plugged in and my PSU is plugged into the wall. When I turn on my PC, the little Q-code indicator lights up, my PSU fan turns on, and the Start and Reset buttons on the board light up. The Q-code just says 00. My CPU fan doesn't turn on, neither do my GPU fans or any of my case fans. Nothing shows up on my monitor, either. I have no clue whats going on and this is my first PC build ever so someone please help me!! 😞 My monitor is hooked up to my graphics card via VGA (Its a fairly old monitor)
The Specs are: Intel Core i5-4670k ASUS ROG Maximus VI Gene Corsair Vengeance Pro 8GB 1600MHz EVGA GeForce GTX 760 ACX Superclocked NZXT Phantom 410 case (I doubt that matters) Corsair CX750M PSU Some old DELL monitor I got for free
I sort of think that this is a PSU problem, not a motherboard. My case has a built in fan controller (NZXT Phantom 410) which is hooked up via molex to my PSU (not my motherboard). All of the fan leads from the controller are plugged into the fans, yet none of them turn on.
Yes, it's self built. And I know you want a picture of the socket, but the CPU is already installed, so when I remove it to take a picture of the socket, should I just place it on a table upside down? or what?
Okay, well sorry to be so stubborn but I'd really like to eliminate the issue of a PSU thing before I mess with the mobo/CPU.
My case fans are all hooked up to a fan controller. (The one in my NZXT Phantom 410) The fan controller is hooked up to my PSU via molex. The fans don't spin up when I turn on the PSU and computer and everything. They aren't interacting with the motherboard at all. So, I'm thinking (and sort of hoping) that it's a PSU issue rather than a mobo or CPU issue. The fans on my graphics card and CPU cooler aren't spinning up, either. The PSU fan DOES spin up, and it gets SOME power to the mobo, as the little error code thing lights up 00 and the Start and Stop buttons light up (on the motherboard)
