What is up with that? I checked all cables, removed ram, still nothing.
Help appreciated

Did you clear the cmos ?

Also, there is usually a plastic or rubber covering on metal back plates. This is NOT to protect the back plate from shipping damage, lol. Removing it will cause the mobo to short out.

Sure you didn't damage the motherboard? Is everything in working order if you revert back to the old cooler?
Funny story (typing this from the very same PC, so everything's fine by now):
I inspected the CPU from the case's top grills and could see its pins. I was like ***? So I removed the cooler, and with it, the CPU came off too - again I was like ***?.
Turns out, it wasn't properly locked in place by the arm... Thank god it rested flat, otherwise I could've seriously damaged the pins upon fastening the cooler in place...

Anyway, everything's up, and running now - lesson learned (thankfully not at an added cost), double check everything...

Thanks for your quick response. That's why I love this forum. Came from the Mice section to here. Those guys are also a fine bunch.

Only think I hate is that you're not allowed to edit your own posts:
Wanted to say that I love the U14s. I can't hear it, the case's fans are way louder, and idle temp is below room temperature.

On a side note: While is was troubleshooting for my problem I cleared the RTC.When it booted again, I just hit F2 to start BIOS at default settings. It turbos now to a sharp 4100, vs 4106-4118 before. Are there any vital settings to get the most out of the 8350 that I should set in BIOS?

Let me know how it perform. I might go get this cpu instead of i7 to save some money

While I am not knowledgable enough to make an educated statement, I can give you my educated opinion:
I use my PC first, and foremost for photo editing with Lightroom because that's what I do. I also like to game (Diablo 3, FFXIV:ARR, Titanfall, TF2, SC2, PoE) from time to time. For so called "office tasks" (surfing, mail, word processing, spread sheets) I have a MacBookPro, and an iPad that are synched.
My rig is the FX 8350, 16gb RAM, and a GTX760. Other than some heavy editing with a huge library in Lightroom I couldn't bring it to its knees. And even in Lightroom/Photoshop its limits are only noticeable when you have ever worked on an i5/i7K.
None of the said games caused a single hiccup, at highest settings on 1920/1080. So for most users it's total overkill, but so is the i7.
It's a cpu for the price conscious geek who likes to dive into its hardware, and play around with OC, and stuff, which AMD makes really easy
