I have just bought a Crosshair V formula mobo, an AMD Phenom II x 6 1100 cpu, a Zotac GTX 580 GPU, a Corsair GS800 PSU etc and having put it all together get nowhere because of the red cpu light on the mobo! I then bought a cheap single core CPU which changes nothing. I have taken the little battery out for a while and tried again and have taken out and moved the memory cards.
As a novice could someone please give me an exhaustive list of things to check in their order before I contact the mobo seller? I have read a few threads but different people do things in different orders....Help!
