new build troubles

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I was wondering if I could get some input on my issue. I have just put together my first computer. I am using a thermaltake-chaser mk-1 case, 850w power supply installed, 16gb memory, gtx 580 super clocked gpu, i7 2600k, corsair h60 aftermarket cooler installed, and a maximus IV extreme-z installed. I wanted to test if my computer powered up and everything was ok so I tried.

All the fans, led lights, buttons on the tower are working great. No beeps are sounding off from the motherboard. The issue is that I am receiving no video output on the monitor. The monitor just says, no signal. The second issue which doesn't really seem to be an issue but I figured I'd mention is that the tower powers on and about 1-2 seconds after the fans and lights are all running it suddenly stops for about a second and then goes back to normal and keeps running.

I have tried just one stick of memory and no video. I have tried changing the gpu slot and still no video. I tried the other connection on for the monitor to plug into on the card and no video. The monitor works fine I tested it on another computer. The only plug that I am aware of that I have not plugged in is the 12v eatx because I can't find a plug from the psu to fit into it.

Any suggestions would be great. I can also upload pictures of my setup if that can further aid in help. I am totally new to this and although I have some fair knowledge with all my parts, I could have made a mistake somewhere along the way.

Thanks for any input.

P.S. here is the link to the thread that has all my parts http://www.overclock.net/intel-gener...-computer.html

does the fan on the 580 power up?

are you sure you plug in both pci-e cables into the 580?

yea the fan on the 580 is working just fine and the pci-e cables are plugged in as well.

the plugs on the card one is straight from the power supply and the other has an adapter with two ends on it that plug into the power supply.

do you got another older video card to try? if you do see if it post screen with the other video card.

it can be your 580 is RMA, or the 'adapter' is faulty. I had used those adapter once, i pull too hard and a wire popped out. lucky for me i just stick it back in and it still worked.

Try with out the video card to isolate the issue. The 2600k has an onboard video processor.
