Did you tighten all 3 screws in the CPU load plate properly?
I would look at it again too,the TR4 socket is huge and all 4094 pins need proper contact to CPU
and that require quite some pressure from the load plate.
No need to over-tighten them
swapped out memory sticks, cleared cmos, held mobo battery out 2 minutes, reseated 24 pin and 2 of 8 pin power plugs 4x- no go . power supply works- this was a ek water kit build & I tested the ek kit for leaks using the power supply, mobo not powered- ps is fine. could only get 1 of the 3 screws on the cpu bracket to lock down using this zenith board. in fact, 2 of the cpu screw were loose when I originally opened the mobo box. there are no beeps, the mobo led does not light; start & rest buttons on mobo and rgb around mobo perimeter light up- but board will not post. Im thinking the 3 screws on the cpu load plate are the problem. by the way, asus support line had to check if the zenith extreme was an asus mobo and the conversation went even less useful from there. 2 minutes later, the asus tech guy said return the board with no useful suggestions and absolutely a waste of our time. Im thinking this asus zenith extreme was rushed to market and is my first asus loose in 18 years of using their many mobos. any suggestion? I hate to remove the water block and disconnect the 15 connections but it will be a long few days. Havent tested a mobo before I put it in the xase in 15 years but I fear Im now in for a rough time.

The CPU_READY LED (between CPU socket and adjacent PCIe slot) should be lit green if CPU is ready to boot. If it's unlit or lit red there's a problem. I'm guessing this is the advanced new version of the traditional old green LED which indicated motherboard is receiving (standby) power.

So im new to building computer. Weell almost new to it. I've builded some before but been lucky enough to not have any big problems except the one i have now.
Just got done installing the motherboard and stuff (Specs at the bottom) and for some reason i cant start my computer.
When i first plugged in the power cable and switched on the power button on my psu, the RGB lights on the motherboard turned on (dont know if its supposed to do that).
And the Front power button on my case and the Start button on the motherboard didnt work either (worked on my old components).
Checked the wires for the front power button and everything is correctly connected.
I also started up the psu with the 24pin tool to see if there was any problem with the psu but everything that was connected got power.
The two cpu 8pins was connected to the motherboard when i tested the psu and the rgb lights on the motherboard turned on.
Connected a speaker to the motherboard to see if it was any problems but i cant even get the motherboard to start the rest of the components so no beeping there.
I think its the psu or something that causes the problem but im not an expert so please try to stop me before i buy me a new expensive one.
NEW: after some reading about psu i dont think the problem is the psu... now im lost.
What can be the problem?
If you guys know something then please share. 😮
