  1. I unplugged everything, left the ram in, and made sure the 20 pin and the 8 pin power connectors were in the motherboard and hit the power button on the motherboard. Nothing. Would that mean the problem is within the PSU, Motherboard, and / or CPU?
  2. I'm super new to computer building, which parts should I test by themselves?
  3. I was scared of electrocuting myself so I got 2 different Psu 600 & 650, still nothing.
  4. Ive been trying all day to get my MSI M7 gaming motherboard to work but no succes. Everything is fitted firmly and all pins in the correct placements. I wore plastic gloves and made sure I couldnt discharge statitc. At this point any advice would be great. 500watt psu, i7-7700k, gtx950, cosair h100 v2 radiator, 5 fans total, 500 gb ssd, 1 optical drive.
  5. Thank you for helping and your advice. The i7 was gifted to me because I was using an i3 before. But when my wallet refills I'll look into the 8th hardware.
  6. I'm about to upgrade to a (MSI Intel Z270 DDR4 ATX Motherboard Gaming M7). I'm also putting in a new i7-7700k, GTX1080. However, my main concern is all of my data and system licensed software (windows 10 & some 3D software). All of my data is on 1 SSD (500 gb). Will I need to get a flash drive for all of my non-software data (pics, music, etc.) And how would I go about getting my programs re-licensed? I have all the original keys to them if that helps. Secondly, this is my first upgrade of anything on my rig, and any advice is greatly appreciated. Other PC parts of rig + the parts mentioned above(please say anything if the following should get swapped out or added-on as well): 500w Psu, 2x8 gb DDR4, Samsung 500 gb SSD.

    How do you get your post noticed and responded to. New to everything forum related.
  8. 1) Budget & Location I'm gonna settle at a $3000 price range, going over by about $500 is okay if its absolutely necessary. I'm also living in Sacramento, CA. 2) Aim I'm trying to develop a game using Unreal, AutoDesk software, Foundry Software, and Z-brush and play video games (to a lesser degree) on the same rig, as well as make all of my own music. I don't game much on PC (console master race). The only games I play are L4D2, Tf2, Counter Strike Go, and Gmod. I don't need 4k and I never play on highest settings. 3) Monitors For this I'd say 1 for now, but please give me advice for the future because I plan on 1 more max. My current monitor is an AOC monitor, https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01BV1XBEI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1. I don't know if I should keep it for this future build. If there is something better and more suited just say and this one will get canned. Since I'm primarily focusing on game creation, anything that will give me a broad RGB color range display with relatively low MS time would be amazing and high Hz count. I don't mind widescreens and its ability to turn and move up and down won't affect me. 4) Peripherals I have my own mouse and keypad along with sound system and windows OS. However, If there is anything else that would further complement the build please say. 5) Why Am I Upgrading I'm running a rig with: MSI Gaming Intel Skylake H170 LGA 1151, Asus 24x DVD-RW Optical Drive, EVGA 500watt power supply, windows 10 home 64 bit, EVGA GeForce GTX 950 2GB single graphic card, 2 Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4 DRAM, Intel i3-6300 Dual Core Processor 3.8GHz, Samsung 850 EVO - 500GB SSD. This setup can't get me any where, it was my first build before and I was on a $1200 budget. I want to upgrade for the main purpose of game development. P.S. Looks are at the bottom of my list, the look of the build doesn't need to be top-notch. I'm also lazy and forgetful, so avoiding liquid cooling (if possible) would be cool too.

I'm not in the know when it comes to computer components even after watching all of Linus's videos.
