Gigabyte B660 Gaming X CPU error

Hello Everyone,to start of I want to apologize for bad English in advanced. I need to type this on mobile :/. 

I wanted to Build my own PC after 6 years of having a pre Build one. 

As the motherboard I use the Gigabyte B660 Gaming X DDR4 (128 GB, Socket 1700/B660/DDR4/S-ATA 600/ATX) 

 

with an I5 12400 12 gen CPU from Intel.

 

The Power Supply I use in this Build is a be quiet! Pure Power 11 FM PSU 550 Watt 80+ Gold modular BN317. 

 

The fans I use in the Case are the VENT 120X120 LIAN LI UNI FAN SL120 NEGRO KIT X3UD KIT 3 PCS/1900RPM/PWM/ARGB G99.12UF3B.00. 

 

As a CPU Cooler I use the Corsair iCUE H150i RGB Elite. 

 

And as RAM I use Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 64GB. 

 

The GPU that I use is a GTX 1060 with 6gb from Asus. 

I also use about 4 TB of Storage with 2 HDDs and a 250 GB m. 2 SSD

 

 

When I put all the parts together in the case and turn the pc on, it starts the fans and the ram RGB is working and so on.

 

But the Motherboard has a red light on the bottom right on consttandly, which after reading the motherboard manual means that there is something wrong with the cpu.

 

Plugging in the PC with HDMI shows a No Signal Message, 

I tried some stuff like Replugging the CPU 8 Pin, checking if the CPU Fan Pin is in the Correct spot. And putting the cpu out of the slot and back in it, as well as putting ram out and in so I know it's from the CPU and not anything else. Resetting the BIOS Batterie didn't seem to help too. 

 

I really don't know what I can Troubleshoot more at this point and think my CPU might be Broken, do you guys have another idea what I can try? 

I also thought it maybe because of the power supply not being powerful enough

try unplugging a stick of ram, swapping slots, etc- bad ram can occasionally cause CPU errors

as well as putting ram out and in so I know it's from the CPU and not anything else.

 

I wrote that in the description. So yea I already tried that. Also when I put all my ram in, I can't swap course the 4 slots are all being used

oh didn’t see that. Also your text is hard to read, could you use a normal size please? lol

 

zamn, talk about an unbalanced build too. 64gb ram, but a low-end GPU and low-mid CPU. Why did you spend so much on ram and so little on core parts?

First of all post tests are done outside the case on a rubber mat or the MB box. Not the first Lian Li case with problems in this forum.

And another low end 550W PSU "for gaming", that's not what they're for. The 450-650W PSUs are today for all in one builds that don't have ANY performance parts.

For the CPU problem, a lot of board manufacturers today make the builder run a Bios Update even before post, that maybe the case for your system.

How would I update the BIOS when I have no signal on the HDMI, and also the USB parts I plug in the pc(Mouse. Keyboard) don't light up like they usually do, with their rgb

So MB gets 0 power ? Do you have the Flash Bios by Button setup ?

Otherwise, did you plug the PSU power to MB cable into MB ?

I am guessing you don't have a spare PC to test parts out on ?

However I see your CPU has an integrated GPU, maybe it's running that by default ?

Unplug the GPU and test the integrated one, plug monitor into MB port.

I tried that too, I guess my CPU was broken or something. I send it back and ordered a new one. I will tell ASAP what the Problem was when I know it it was The MB PSU or the CPU. 

So when people have the same Problem they can hopefully get the answer here

Not exactly, many of us here are Computer Professionals & Specialists. Same for Tom's Hardware. I can claim anything, but I can't definitively convince you of the truth.

i send my Motherboard back and my CPU and got new ones, i put them together and connected them to the PSU, still same error

do i need to update my BIOS or what could be the Problem?

Have you checked the Ram compatibility list for the MB ? Did you check with Corsair ?

Again "MB gets no power" with an anemic 550W PSU of questionable quality is NOT a Ram issue.
