I7 920 + Rampage II Gene

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys. I decided to do a test run of my components before I put them in my case, but I can't get the system to boot. So far:
I've installed the CPU in the RIIGene with a megahalems heat sink on top.
I've installed 3 DIMM's in the blue slots (2GB each).
I've installed a Gigabyte GTX470SOC.
I've connected the 8pin (2x4pin) CPU power cable.
I've connected the 24pin (20+4pin) CPU power cable.
I've connected two 6pin PCI-E power cables to the GTX470.
I've connected a DVI cable to my monitor (from the 470).

In some instances the START and RESET buttons both light up, in others only the reset button lights up when I switch on the mains.
I managed to get it to power on once while the GPU wasn't plugged in but nothing since then (not sure if it actually got to POST as the GPU wasn't connected, i.e nothing on the monitor).
The LCD POSTER is displaying 'CPU INIT'.

Hope that wasn't too confusing; any ideas poke.gif.

Specs:
I7 920 D0
6GB Kingston 1600MHz RAM
Asus Rampage II GENE
Gigabyte GTX470 SOC
Silverstone ST60F-P 600W fully modular power supply.

Here is the motherboard

Seem's to start up absolutely fine with no GPU installed. I'd understand no output if the GPU was bad but the machine doesn't power on at all with the GPU installed :/

I've found that I can get it to power up if I remove the two 6pin PCI-E cables, but otherwise nothing. Any ideas?
