reassurance on my first build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Sig Rig not sure if this is the best place but i need some answers

Got everything last week from newegg, I ended up receiving a motherboard with bent cpu pins (3 that I could tell and they did NOT look easily fixable I tried with a 5mm mech pencil..). Anyways newegg sent me a replacement board even though the issue may of been my fault or gigabytes.. who knows I was ready to buy another board.

The issue with my system WAS that when the I FORGOT to plug the cpu power in everything turned on (minus cpu..) gpu fans, motherboard leds, etc went on fully. When the CPU power was turned on the computer essentially briefly started for a second, then shut down and went into a constant loop.

Is it logically for me to narrow the problem to the bent pins? Really need everything to work when my replacement comes monday. Forgot to mention I troubleshooted inserting ram into all slots and tried powering on with no harddrives or sata devices as well.

it could be the bent pins arent making contact to the cpu so its not booting completly

thats what i assumed as well because of the constant loop when the cpu power was in.

anyways im definetly NOT going to install everything in the case this time.. but when i try to "bread board" my system how do i start it.. last time i had to take the power plug from my case and plug it into the motherboard, is that really needed?

just take a screw driver and make contact between the two pins for the front I/O of your motherboard and it will start it up
