    I finally had time to assemble my 6 core beast, after over a month I had issues with what turned out to be the video card but thankfully my lovely and thoughtful wife purchased and IPR when she bought it at memory express. http://i590.photobucket.com/albums/ss348/zodgrod/P6070382.jpg

    WIP New build gaming and movies/pictures machine

    I am almost done a night shift then get home and shovel the drive way and deck. I am considering doing some work on my build, but depending on how tired I am will determine what I may do. I think maybe some cable tie down and hiding as this is one build I am taking time with and not just...

    [RESOLVED]no boot up from comp

    If it were me I would certainly take it apart and rebuild it. Hopefully the cpu got knocked loose or maybe its one of the power connectors. I had a similar issue where only part of the board would power up but I didn't have the 24 pin all the way in on one side.
