    Hi Scan,

    I've installed my components in the case (bit of a squeeze and the PSU casing covers the first 4 SATA slots, but that's my problem, not yours) but I now can't get the system to turn on. I press the power button and the fans and pump spin up for about 5 seconds, before the system shuts down for a few seconds, then starts up again for about 5 seconds, then shuts down for a few seconds etc etc.

    Any ideas what could be the cause? The water block is tight on the mobo, the RAM is seated correctly and teh cpu went in without any hassle. I've only got 2 SSDs installed (see previous comment about SATA connectors :rolleyes: ) and no additional graphics card. Any thoughts?

    Thanks,

    Andy

    Definitely plugged in the 4/8pin for the CPU?

    Yup, it was the RAM not being seated correctly. Must remember to put RAM in before installing motherboard...
