    Question Zenith Extreme - No boot !

    I just put my new motherboard. But I have trouble when i start.

    My question is: What is the minimum connectivity to achieve to observe a sign of life of the motherboard? Is the 24 and 2x8 pin + only the cpu pressing the "START" on the motherboard to observe a light or the OLED screen?

    I only have the RGB of the card and the buttons "start" and "reset" light. And nothing changes when pressing "START".

    To boot the pc you need all power connections...ram...gpu...cpu(cooled)...monitor will help see what's happening...

    The minimum sign of life is connecting psu to board and seeing lights...start button etc. But that wont boot...of course

    The pc don't boot with all connections. So i try to find the trouble with the minimum of connecting.
    I think that if i have only CPU (no RAM, no gpu, etc...) when i press "start" on the motherboard i will have at least the Q-led, the OLED with an error code, and a fan that turns no ?

    After two return trips to the repair center and an exchange with an refurbished card ... it still does not work! But this time a little better the card tests the CPU at power up. But nothing else after the start. I am damned !

    fabriceG, if everything is connected from the power supply to the motherboard, the lights only should appear. Powering on is a different matter now. Make sure you connected the proper cables to the graphical unit. I had a problem like that in the beginning. Nothing was working because of in-proper cable management. I went to a service shop and they connected the cables properly and everything is working fine till this day
    How many watts does your power supply have? Which graphics card do you have?
