New MSI B350 Gaming Pro and Ryzen 1200 but no post

Just got a new mobo and cpu as said in the title, but the computer does not post. I haven't installed the disk with the Drivers and Utilities yet because my previous motherboard (Gigabyte H110M-A) didn't require me to install with the included disk. I'm pretty sure this is the case but I'm gonna ask anyway, I need to install the Drivers and Utilities disk right?

    Updated:
    Mobo: MSI B350m Gaming Pro
    CPU: Ryzen 3 1200
    GPU: Gigabyte GTX 1050ti
    RAM: Ripjaw 8gb 3000

    Previous:
    Mobo: Gigabyte H110M-A
    CPU: i3 6100
    etc.

    It boots up no problem with the H110M-A and i3, but it does not post at all with the MSI mobo. I'm assuming it's because I have to install the Utilities and Drivers disk to make it work, but I currently don't have a disk drive to install this. This doesn't pose much of a problem to me because I have an external drive at home, so if this is the case, then I can just install it next week.

    Oh, it won't automatically downclock?

  5. I would suggest for you to go to a 2400mhz then just overclock it they are pretty much the same

    Yes, it should downclock and require you to set a higher speed in bios. Your board will support upto ddr4 3200 with an OC.
    Drivers are not required to post. Post only requires the PSU, motherboard, cpu, ram and a gpu. Now if the os was originally installed on a different system then it may not boot but boot happens after post.

    Verify the 24-pin ATX and 8-pin EPS power connectors are plugged into the motherboard(may even try reseating them).
    If you bought a dual channel ram kit try 1 stick of ram at a time to see if 1 is bad. Some 1050Tis require a 6-pin pci-e power connection so if your card has a 6-pin connector it needs to be plugged in to the PSU.

    Ok, I think I may have found the solution. I tried my friend's 600w psu instead of my 450w with all the exact same parts (b350, r1200, 1050ti, both sticks of 3000mhz ddr4 ripjaw) and it booted up no problem. My current psu might be the problem because of:

    1. The ATX cable wasn't long enough, so I had to really stretch it to get it to connect. Either one of the wires in the 8 pin wasn't touching the contact points for the pins, therefore not providing power
    2. A basic 450w (no rating) just isn't enough for the parts.

  8. A good quality 450w psu would be fine for your specs.

    Well in that case, my basic 450w with no rating probably isn't good enough then? It's a Rosewill Stallion RD-450 i think
