Question Maybe fried mobo/cpu?

just tried to fire up the system for the time... everything connected to the PSU works... fans/drives etc... I get no beeps from the chasis... interesting thing is... the heatsink is connected to the mobo... and it works fine... though I had another fan running from the front of the case to the mobo... and it wasn't working... though I took it out of the mobo and ran it to the PSU and it worked... the fan on my vid card is functional to (probably through PCI-E plugs)...

no beeps... no pictures... heatsink from mobo worked, but another fan didn't work through mobo...

oh what to do...

Default Re: Maybe fried mobo/cpu?

The board may not be switching on for one of two reasons. 1) try lightly replugging the four wire 12v cpu feed until the retainer clicks inplace. I saw that problem when recently a supply on a previous build here from a loose contact inside the plug. Without power going through the default won't be heard since the system hasn't started.

The 2) item is looking at a dead board from bad caps or maybe even a dead bios chip. Nothing not even a fan plugged directly to the board would come on then. On a new build here the first board ran 3 days and wouldn't fire up on day #4. That was returned for a prompt replacement.
