    Default Z87M Extreme4 no POST, nuffin

    Hi,

    after having received the last bits for a new system I built it up today, then pushed the power button and ... nothing.

    No POST, screen stays black, no beep, no anything, CPU fan speeds up, but nothing else.

    Usual things like Clear CMOS, removing bits and reseating them, one by one, already tried, nothing helped,
    total silence, total darkness.

    Any ideas ?

    TIA and best regards,

    Alex

    Thanks for the link, wardog, while I am pretty sure I can answer most, if not all, questions positively
    I'll try extracting the mobo again to make 1000% sure there are no shorts (although I never managed
    to cause one the many times I built my own systems). Unfortunately this means removing the cooler
    to reach all the screws, yada yada *sigh*

    Yea. Sorry for no easy reply/answer.

    Heatsink or water cooler get tightened too tight?

    Heatsink (Noctua NH-L12) removed for a while, backplane mounting untightened a bit, mobo pulled out of case
    to make sure no shorts (placed on an antistatic with no contact to the case but cables still connected (all but fan)),
    PS is a be quiet! BN143 (450W) which comes with 2x4 ATX to fill the 8-pin power connector, CPU (i5-4570S)
    installed correctly (there's about no way of getting this wrong anyway), tried with IGP and a separate video card,
    doesn't change the symptoms a bit.

    The only thing I'm not 100% sure of is RAM, using 2x Crucial Ballistix Tactical DDR3-1600, CL8-8-8-24 (BLT2CP8G3D1608DT1TX0CEU)
    which are not on the compatibility list, as they are dual-channel I seated them in A1+B1 as well as A2+B2, as per the manual, and
    I tried removing both, in which case I'd have expected at least a signal of anger from the BIOS, but nothing here either.

    Thanks for your input !

    As wazza says. Hit a friend or relative up.

    Crucial states this ram is not compatible with your Z87M Extreme4. See Crucial.com/eu - Advanced Search and key in steps 1-3 on the left side of the page.

    I've now pulled 4 pieces of KVR1333D3N9K2/8G from one of my servers (which was a major pain to extract them from underneath
    the heatsink), and these guys are clearly listed as being compatible with this mobo, but still NO CHANGE

    Time to take a peek at the bare socket.

    Please bear with me, maybe my english just isn't good enough, but - what am I supposed to do here ?

    Another hint I've been given is measure the PS' output which may just be enough to spin up the fan(s) but
    doesn't supply 12V, does this sound reasonable ?
