It takes all of 15 seconds to put the RAM in the slots, so do it. These things can't be rushed unless you want to create more problems down the line. So take your time, young padawan!
I've outlined pretty much everything to eliminate "user error" from the equation, so if this is still a problem after doing these steps, like I said, just post here again and I (and other posters) will let you know if we think there is anything else that can be done. If not, you're well within RMA timeframe so don't sweat it. It'll all come together, it's just a question of time at this point.
Okay so I come home tonight and I do as you say I load up all my ram in the correct outlets even though Asus User guides states can use 1 stick as you said not a big deal what so ever. So check. I then realized I did make an error the 8 pin device on the top of the mobo I did not even plug in...
last computer I messed with is well over 6 years ago for enthusiasts mobo. I work more on servers and routers.
So Check on this one. I completed the GPU in the first slot however the Noctua is so large my GPU can not fit in the first slot beside the Noctua literally will not fit in the pci with out a guarantee arc if I placed it in the PCI-E. So left off the cooler to complete a quick boot. So Check. I also connected both CPU cooling fans to the CPU FAN and CPU OPT. (Check) Made sure all led pins, power and reset are connected correctly to the Q connector. (Check)
1. All Ram (Check)
2. 8 pin top of mobo (Check)
3. Gpu first slot (check)
4. Fans on CPU Fan and CPU OPT (check)
5. Made sure all led pins, power and reset are connected correctly to the Q connector. (Check)
Status on power up well CPU led is gone
Boot device came on but realized on the wrong sata connector user guide states the sata connectors a little weird but I understood after reading further.
I look to my screen and what do I see?
Its ALIVE!!! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Okay a little Frankenstein( And no I don't mean the monster)
moment I know, but I'm so stoked its not even funny.
Mad Reps to you lowfiwhiteguy.
