No lights on the keyboard, no beeps (is there a chassis speaker?). Tried reseating the ram and the other slot, tried cmos reset also. Still nothing. Anyone come across this and have another suggestion?

Thanks

I had a similar problem:

so what do i need to hook up all the case fans. the link from the op lead me to buy a 4pin to 3x 4pin splitter. Seems to be the wrong one. can anyone tell me what cable i need to hook up the fans?

so my new system wont boot. the board requires a 4 pin 12v cpu power connector, and the suggested psu doesn't have this connector. how are you guys getting power to the cpu?

The 8-pin connector can be separated into two 4-pin connectors (with the cx430). Just like how the extra 4-pin can be separated off the ATX power connector.

As noted earlier, the motherboard in the OP is hard to find. Is this a suitable substitute?

It's been asked a few times, but I'm still not quite sure what the solution is...

The case has four fans with 3-pin connectors. The motherboard I purchased only has one 3-pin fan connector. The adapter linked in the OP converts one Molex input to three. How do I hook up the fans then? Do I need one or these for each fan?

Thanks.

Edit: Or is the item in the OP supposed to be something like this?

Edit2: Nevermind. Should have opened the fans and found the Molex adapters first.

That MB has a Realtek 8111E LAN-Card. A lot of people have problems with it. So I wouldn't buy it. http://lime-technology.com/wiki/index.ph...otherboard
