    Help! Am unable to proceed to Boot on a new Build. DRAM Yellow

    Hello Everybody,

    I've just built up a new rig and when I tried to turn it on, all of the fans turned on, however I noticed that the DRAM led is yellow and there was no output in my monitor.

    As a next step to debug this, I removed the graphics card, then tried taking all the RAM stick out and putting it in different combinations and it did not change.
    I thought maybe the problem is with the CPU. I removed all the connection and checked the CPU Pins if they are ok, and they appear to be all right:

    1. Processor Socket in MoBo:
    2. Processor pic 1:
    3. Processor pic 2:

    When installing the CPU I used the Asus CPU installer tool.

    Having removed the CPU to check it, I rebuilt the system and tried running it again without the accessories; only CPU, Cooler, 1x RAM and M2 SSD. Got stuck at the same process.

    Anyone got any ideas? Help is greatly appreciated.

    Put the motherboard on top of the cardboard box to use it as a temporary testbench. Use the bare minimum and make sure your power cables (24 pin & 8 pin) are connected properly. See if the problem persists.
