    I've assembled a new computer;

    CPU - Intel Core i7 950 3.06G s1366
    PSU - 850W CORSAIR CMPSU-850HXUK
    HDD - 1TB SAMSUNG HD103SJ SATA F3
    GFX - 1GB ASUS HD5870/2DIS/1GD5
    RAM - Corsair Dominator 6GB 3x2 CMP6GX3M3A1600C8 DHX
    CASE - Silverstone Fortress FT02R-W
    Motherboard - ASUS P6X58D-E MoBo
    Cooling - Thermaltake Frio CL-P0564

    During start up I get a blank screen. All the fans power up, CPU, Case and GFX. The DIMM light comes on so that tells me that there's something wrong with the RAM?

    I've tried different configurations of the RAM and also made sure that the graphics card is installed properly.

    Any suggestions? :wallbash:

    I'm hoping for a :duh: moment

    Check ram is in correct slots and make sure the cables are all in tight, there's 2 4 pins next to CPU socket that both need filling or it won't boot as I've noticed in the past, also the frio is such a big cooler you may have difficulties with the fitting of those wires in most standard high end cases

    Thanks for the responses guys. It was most definitely a facepalm moment.

    After reinstalling all of the components it was the 8 pin ATX connector that I forgot which was hiding under my frio.

    Currently installing windows...
