New build computer won't boot or beep. - Page 2

You can try to loosen the waterblock.

If you tighten down the waterblock too tightly the board may not light( I've seen my share of this happening ).

You'll need those other four pins also (making the total of 8 pins). The connector is right next to the 4-pin connector you used. Again, just pop off the little cover, and connect the additional four pins.
ACtually looking at the picture of his mobo, it does only have a 4 pin socket. Unusual for a board that supposedly supports quads. You can try finding the 4 pin ATX plug on your PSU and putting it in that socket, it should work, but it may not with the quad. If it does work, don't expect much overclocking ability that's for sure.

To simplify your first boot, its generally best to do so with the least amount of components as possible. For troubleshooting, I'd run a single gpu in the top slot, remove the SLI. Run a single stick of ram. Get an 89 pin and double check all your power/reset switch header wires. Borrow a sound beeper from another comp if one is lying around (for code signals).

Gigabyte P35-DS3L supports quads and only has a 4 pin to the mobo, could be similar but I'm not familiar with his mobo.

Either way, he says he didn't plug it in. Thats the alarm bell right there.

This mobo, only has the 24+4 pins, and an another 4 pins on the top left corner of the CPU that say ATX_12v on the manual. On my PSU, there's only two plug that say CPU-1 and CPU-2. CPU-1 will fit but CPU-2 won't. If I plug in this one, the computer computer will have power for a second then shut off. If I didn't plug in this one, the computer will run with the fans running.

If you look at this diagram you can see which plugs to use. The one bundled with the 20pin should stay with the 20 pin, the other 4/8 pin is what goes next to your cpu. With BOTH in, your computer should boot.

If you are speaking of the giant plug next to the floppy cable on the motherboard that is a 24pin ATX plug.

Near the socket there are 4 pins there that must be plugged in. Every square/roundedsquare plug on your motherboard needs a connector in it.

Does the power supply have a 20 pin and a detachable 4 pin, or a solid 24 pin connector. The power supply should also have another 4 pin connector that goes to the ATX12v.

If it doesn't boot then you need to break it down piece by piece. Also the reviews on that board speak about memory issues, so make sure your memory i working well.
