I had a friend who forgot to put their mounting bracket on their cpu cooler so the metal screws for the cpu cooler were touching some of the motherboard contacts. It didn't turn on until the bracket was put on, I would check for that. Also is your power switch cable plugged into the right spot? Have you tried clearing your CMOS battery (look it up on YT). If you can't figure it out after trying these I would recommend just bringing it to a computer store and get them to run a diagnostics on it.

Looks at your parts i see no reason you should have problems or incompatibilities. This might be helpful to you. Some similar vids as well https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZDv9ubQfY4

Try checking your front panel connectors. It's a pretty common mistake people make and it's so annoying when it happens too, because if you're like me, you'll spend 15 minutes checking everything and then finally check the front panel connectors last. Your PC will be fine if they're incorrectly connected, it only prevents your PC from booting. Hope this helps!

Hello,

Is your Computer completely dead, no power? If so, start here. If not, let me know your exact symptoms.

To begin, it's always good to have a few testing tools around for times like this. I suspect you do not have a Motherboard internal speaker connected, so you can hear POST beep codes.

Here's are two items you might consider purchasing for troubleshooting.

First, check power from both front and rear:

Is the wall socket working?

Is the A/c power cord good?

Is there an power "on" switch on the PSU?

Is the green LED light on the Motherboard lit?

Unplug the 24 pin connector from the Motherboard and make a "U" shaped paper clip. In the 24 pin connect's contact holes, use the paper clip to bridge both Green and Black wires. Now check to see if the PSU fan is spinning. If not, swap PSUs.

If the PSU is working check front power by disconnecting all front case wires from the Motherboard.

Take a flat screwdriver and bridge (short) the two power switch pins which the case power was connected to. Still doesn't start.

Next, do the same thing with the two reset pins from the front case switch located on the Motherboard next to the power switch pins. Short across these pins for 15 seconds.

Now, once again repeat shorting power switch pins. Did it start?

Will stop here before continuing to troubleshoot.

Cheers!
