I finally attempted my first build. Currently, I'm testing the mobo+ cpu outside the case, with only the mobo and cpu power+fan cords firmly attached.
When I flip the PSU switch to turn it on, one side of the mobo lights up green/yellow, while VGA and CPU lights briefly flash red. The cpu fan moves just a bit, then nothing. This happened once. For all subsequent attempts, nothing happens. I verified the CPU has no broken pins and no thermal paste on them. How do I troubleshoot this from here?
