    Does it at least post? And if so do you have this problem in safe Mode? and if you do not have the problem in safe mode then lower your resolution and refresh rate and try again on a normal boot.

    Could be bad memory. Try different sticks or swap them. Try one at a time if applicable.

    Okay. Have you looked at the CPU? Does it smell or look burnt?

    I have the same board, CPU, and hard drive. Unless you somehow know for sure it's not the memory, please look into it. I had a lot of memory problems with mine where a few sticks would hang the BIOS or not initialize it at all.

    Did you plug in the 20/24 pin connector to the motherboard from the PSU?
    Did you also plug in the 4 pin power connector on the motherboard from the PSU?

    Many people forget the 4 pin connector and if you dont do that than only your fans will spin and nothing else will happen

    We don't. Please explain why. Did you even OC the CPU? Do you run high temps? Your system should shut down if the CPU gets too hot.

    Then it's likely not the CPU. If you're so sure it's not your memory, please explain why you know it's not. (This is the second time I've asked).

    Dude did you even look at this.

    Check this:
    Did you plug in the 20/24 pin connector to the motherboard from the PSU?
    Did you also plug in the 4 pin power connector on the motherboard from the PSU?

    Many people forget the 4 pin connector and if you dont do that than only your fans will spin and nothing else will happen

    I HAVE HAD AND SEEN THIS ISSUE BEFORE

    I'm saying it's the memory until you tell me why it isn't. Or are you ignoring/blocking my posts?
