    Asus Formula VI Not Booting, ROG LED sign Blinks + Start and Reset Illuminated

    Hey

    This is the first rig I've built, I spent all day yesterday building it, however didn't get to power it on, went to power it on today however no luck.

    The ROG Logo in the centre of the MB works and blinks, And the start/reset buttons are illuminated however do nothing, I have just completely rewired the case, ensuring all pins are correctly intact and all pin headers are added to the correct pins on the MB however to why its not booting I'm stuck.

    Both the start button on the MB does not work and Neither does the power button on the case.

    Any One have any ideas,

    I have not got the Wifi Card in as I read a post regarding that(which solved their issue)

    Mind taking a photo (or photos if that's better) of how you've wired everthing up to the motherboard? Mainly interested in seeing if all connections to the motherboard have been done properly.

    Also - please list your system specs.

    The radiator crowding the WiFi card and 8 and 4-pin power headers looks just like mine. Good job catching the 6 vs 4 pin connection.

    I think you also have a BIOS issue. The base version 0804 doesn't include support for the listed processor. The 4790 CPU is 'Haswell Refresh' which needs one of the later BIOS versions for compatibility.

    I suggest you download the latest full (not beta) version, 1402, and flash it as instructed for Haswell Refresh compatibility.

    Jeff
