Hello everyone,

I just finished building my first computer and everything is working fine. Except for one problem. All my fans are spinning, GPU, PSU, case fans, leds on motherboard and case working, but my H100i does not show any sign of life. No leds, no sounds, fans connected to the power port are not spinning. Help? I can't boot into the BIOS either, my computer just keeps turning off, then on, off, on repeatedly.

have you plugged in the sata power connector that connects to the pump? read through the manual thoroughly and give your h100 a look over

Do you mean the CPU fan header? I attached that. Am I missing something?

And do check bios option for boot if no fan detected. Some motherboards won't boot without a 4pin fan plugged into the 4 pin pwm connector.

Alright guys. I'm sorry I forgot that silly SATA cable

I got the pump running, LED's on the block turn on and the radiator fans turn on but now it is still doing what it was doing before. The whole system is just turning on, then off, on the off constantly unless I turn off the PSU while the system isn't spinning. Any ideas? I'll list my specs,

MSI Z77 MPower
i7-3770k
H100i
EVGA GTX 670 4GB Edition
SeaSonic 80 Plus Platinum 760W
Patriot Viper 3 16GB (4x4)
Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB
Corsair 600T

Problem is that I don't have extra parts to test the system with :/ I don't even get a post from the board, should I try swapping my H100 and put in the stock cooler?

Your motherboard should have a LED display readout for troubleshooting problems like these. See what code its spitting out and cross-reference the code in your manual. I've had similar issues where the computer would boot on and off in quick succession; usually related to memory issues or memory controller issues (bent socket pins, etc.)

The LED number on the board just reads "55" I took out my motherboard, placed it on a box, replaced the H100i with the stock cooler and attached all necessary cables and it still does the same thing. All fans are spinning, everything is running for about 10 seconds and the it all turns off, then switches back on after about 3 seconds. I tried changing the wall socket where my PSU is connected to and it doesn't make a difference.

I had the same problem not too long ago on a Asrock board, same debug code. Did a lot of research to try and solve the problem, it ended up being bent socket pins on the motherboard. Firstly, make sure your RAM is fully seated. If it is, try booting up using only one stick of RAM and installing on different slots. It's worth a shot. If no go, you might want to inspect your CPU socket for bent pins.

What eventually worked for you? I hope it's not my CPU pins, I took extreme care with putting in my CPU :/ I'm going to give the RAM thing a shot and see if it works.
