New build wont start up - Page 2

post #11 of 21
certain rails on the PSU could be dead meaning the computer could start up for a sec then shut down and what not, just because something is DOA doesn't mean it doesn't work at all, it's kind of like a car, just because the engine won't start, it doesn't mean the radio is dead.

Unfortunately if you don't have any spart parts laying around it will be pretty hard to troubleshoot your system, I really think you need to make sure that your PSU is working, even if you have to take it to a friends house and hook it up to their working PC to check it, once you rule that out, your next concern would be your motherboard. If your PSU works and your computer is not even posting a message on you monitor, more than likely it's your mobo

Did you make sure to place your mobo standoffs correctly? Is you CPU Completely seated, maybe take your CPU back out and check the pins in the CPU Slot, make sure none of them are bent.

Locate those 2 pins that you plug the power button into. Take a flat head screwdriver and place it on those two pins and those two pins only. That will manually start up the computer without the need of the power button. This will make sure it's not your button.

absolutely. That's how a lot of people like me who do a general build up of the computer outside of the case get it to turn on.

Then it is surely your power supply. This may sound redundant but unplug the power supply from the back. Flip the switch, let it sit for a little then plug it back in, turn the switch back on and try starting it up. My friend had a power supply that wouldn't only work like this recently until she replaced it.

For a computer with those specifications, I might estimate that you'd want about an 850w power supply to power everything. If you plan on overclocking, you'd want ~1000w PSU or more. The reason I say this is because you are trying to run 6 harddrives with an i7 3770k which I've heard already EATS power, and a GTX 580 as well. The GTX 580 could use anywhere from 100-300W power by itself. Hard drives could be 50W each, and then on top, the i7 3770k which could be in the ballpark of 300-400W.


EDIT: As to what Spykes said about turning off the PSU and unplugging it, my computer does that only after bad overclocks. If this is happening to you without overclocking, or if it still won't power, then surely it is the power supply either being DOA or not supplying enough power. My computer does it as is with a Corsair HX1000.

Then I shall invest in a new 1000w PSU, though I do think a 750w should be enough to power my build (which is actually only 3 HDD's and 1 SSD). My main build runs fine on a 1000w with 2 GTX 580s in SLI and 6 2TB HDD's in RAID 0+1 and an overclocked 2600K.
