Poking some fun your way, but .....

Did it run outside the case, bench build, before you built/placed it in the case? TongueStar

That'd be a sure fire way to diagnose, now EmbarrassedTongue

Tell me. We moved from MI to AZ this spring to retire. Some bozos decided to cut the lock on the trailer and stole all, most of anyways, my 4 computers and most of my spare parts too.

HDMI on first boots while using the internal GPU(iGPU Wink) from what I've read and replied here have mostly been troublesome.

Get or borrow a DVI-D cable and test.

Too, is HDMI feeding a monitor, or television? Monitor please.


Skip the PSU for now, unless you do believe it dubious or questionable for this build, but please, list out what hardware comprises the system if you would. Include the PSUs age too.

I checked CPU power as I had seen that somebody in this forum had done that mistake.

I reseted BIOS as advised in this forum. I didn't remove battery to do full CMOS clean-up but based manual the difference was just resetting the clock.

I believe motherboard connector is connected to Intel's internal GPU (I believe you refer that as iGPU). I'm not using DVI connector and I was wondering if MB could have an issue with HDMI. Could it? I'm not sure if I have DVI cable.

I've been building computers since early 90's and this is the first time that I've really nothing to work with. Should I try getting new PSU, take the processors out or what? It is not like I can take too much out from the system anymore.

Two things to begin with.

1. Be sure you haven't overlooked plugging in the 8-pin CPU Power at the top of the motherboard.

2. Reset the BIOS

And also use the processors iGPU to diagnose with.


Keep us updated.

I've new barebone setup right now and I'm trying to debug my system.

The motherboard has Intel Core i5-6600K and G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin SDRAM DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000) Intel Z170 Memory Kit F4-3000C15D-16GVKB (supported) and it just starts but nothing shows on the screen. Processor fan runs nicely but as I don't have speaker in my system, I'm not keeping any beeps anywhere.

Prior this I had Samsung M.2 SSD connected to the system and then it booted up for 5 second (based on fan), stopped and booted up again and never showed anything on display.

Currently, I've connected the display through HDMI into my PC monitor through MB connector but the aim is to hook up my GTX1080 once things start working.

Any ideas what I should try?

-- edit -- 17.12.2016
After trying PSU and RAM, I went for trying different motherboard and that solved the issue. I used supported RAM modules so I believe the board was DOA (Dead On Arrival) so now I get to do some RMA fun :-(
