    Just Upgraded CPU, Mobo, and GPU and PC now won't Power Up


    Could this be a memory issue? I noticed that the RAM that I am using is compatible with my MSI Z97 Gaming Mobo but it is listed under the OC Memory List in the manufacturers website. What does this mean exactly? Should I not be surprised that my PC won't turn on at all.

    The new parts are...

    CPU: Intel 4690K
    Mobo: MSI Z97 Gaming 5
    GPU: MSI GTX-970

    What power supply are you using?

    Did you first connect all of your hardware outside the case and do a burn-in test?

    Remove everything from case.
    Grab motherboard box.
    Place motherboard on top of box.
    Connect everything.
    Power up board.
    Let it run for a couple hours like that, if nothing asplodes put it back in the case, if it don't work, you probably have a short behind the motherboard.

    Thanks for your response my friend!
    Turns out I had the case power switch plugged into the mobo the wrong way...
    Everything is up and running just fine now!
