Just built my computer and it doesn't work can someone help? - Page 2

Make sure you plugged in the 8 pin CPU power connector and that you did not use an 8 pin PCIE power connector on it.

Your I/O cables could be plugged in wrong. Its not processor overheating, you'd geta bios screen.

I guarantee you plugged your on/off cables into the wrong set of prongs on the bottom of your mobo.

do u guys agree or do u think its something else?
Yeah, that sounds like your cooler isn't properly seated, thus your PC won't turn on. As long as you have more thermal paste, I would take the cooler off, and reattach it to see if you can get it all seated properly.

I would start by disconnecting everything, and plugging it all back in. Its possible something is just slightly mis-seated. It's certainly worked for me in the past...

I'm with Sonic. Just tear it all down again. Make sure you double check everything as you are doing it, even if you have to make a list and check it off as you do it.

If all else fails post some pics of the parts in the case so we can have a look for anything you may have done wrong.

well currently i can't do anything cuz i need to order a new cpu fan since i had to destroy the stock i7 930 heatsink/fan that came with it since the plastic ends that latch onto the mobo were warped when i first got it... it ended up getting stuck onto the mobo and the other plastic ends were just warped too. so im looking into another fan+heatsink right now.. i'm thinking bout a Corsair A50 or Corsair A70
