For reference, here's the build: Build
So all of my components came in and I began building yesterday. I got everything installed and tried to boot, but I'm getting no display and the VGA and BOOT led's on the board are lit. I started troubleshooting by unplugging components one at a time until I'm now at this state:
*MB out of case (on anti-static bag)
*24 pin and 8 pin cables connected
*kraken installed (radiator is out of case, too)
*kraken sata power hooked up
*kraken connected to mb AIO PUMP header
*1x kraken fan connected to CPU FAN header
*No hdd installed (m.2 or sata)
*RAM installed in slots 2&4
*case front panel connected
I'm still having no luck. I've tried both pieces of RAM individually in each slot. I've reset the CMOS. Could it be that the bios isn't recognizing the 9700k? I feel like it should since this is a z390 board made specifically for 9th gen processors.
I'm at a loss and am feeling pretty frustrated. Any help would be appreciated!!!
