Bought a Strix x99 gaming from ASUS, but can't seem to boot my computer

Hi there,

I've been wanting to upgrade my motherboard for a while so I recently bought a new strix x99 gaming, an i7 6800 cpu, a corsair h-series liquid cooler (I think the H90 off the top of my head) as well as a corsair rmi 750 watt psu.

I plugged it all in, ready to boot - the lights show up and everything, when I power it the lights flash and the fans start to spin as if it's going to boot but a half second later it shuts itself down.

Any help would be appreciated!

    I had the same problem almost... It could be a bad ram. That what was wrong with mine after finding a whole year, one piece of stick of ram was causing a problem.

    So yeah check your ram. take one out. then repeat till you find the bad ram.
  2. I've tried that. I've made sure that all my standoffs are in place, I breadboarded it, I've double check all my wires, I've scoured the owners manuals, I've double checked the CPU, I double checked my CPU pins, my cpu is compatible, as far as I can tell everything SHOULD be working, and the only thing I can think is that maybe my motherboard is faulty.

    Just to make sure, did you take the ram out of the motherboard and out of the case and try rebooting it?
  4. Yes, I tried that. I also moved them around the just in case they needed to be in a specific slot, even though the owners manual didn't mention it.

    Have you tried taking the little small battery out and putting it back in and making sure it's in the slot?
  6. Anyone else have an idea? Could it be that my mobo is faulty?

    DId you make sure that your motherboard is in position right? all screws are tight and one is not loose? I heard if that the case it can malfunction.
  8. Yeah, I bread-boarded it too and the same problem happens when it's out of the case, so that's not it.
