CPU - Intel Celeron G530 (Sandy Bridge 1155)
Mobo - MSI H67MS
RAM - 2x4 PNY Optima, 1333 @ cas 9 (crap ram)
PSU - Antec 'Green' 380W
Video - Zotac GeForce 210 (inconsequential)
So after some troubleshooting, I figure the motherboard is DOA, since the likelihood of 2 bad ram sticks is very low. This is RMA'd.
Fast forward. New motherboard, still will not post. Tried another psu as well with no luck. Even a different monitor. With onboard/discrete gfx. Figure the CPU is dead. RMA that.
Fast forward. New CPU... Doesn't work. Try with completely new ram. Doesn't work.
I am completely lost and have no idea. Anyone have any ideas?
