Pc Build Troubleshooting

Hello guys!

So on monday I helped my friend with his build and we basically completed it. But his pc isn't starting properly ?. When pressing the power button, the fans start to rotate but stop after ~1 sec and nothing appears on the monitor(basically nothing happens afterwards). There is a LED on the motherboard which indicates, that the motherboard gets electricity. Furthermore, the manual of the motherboard says that there is a LED, which glows red when there is a problem with the CPU(According to the manuel it should glow red all the time until the problem is fixed). The weird thing is that this LED only blinks quickly red when trying to start the pc. Do you guys still think that this quick blink still is indicating an CPU error? Any help would be appreciated.

His specs:

CPU: Intel Core i7-7700K

MOTHERBOARD: ASUS ROG Strix Z370-F Gaming

PSU: be quiet! Pure Power 10-CM 600W

I think these are the important specs for this case. Tell me when you need more information!

Yours sincerely,

Stefan

You are trying to run a CPU that is incompatible with that motherboard.

I don't think so since the CPUs socket is LGA1151 and the motherboard supports 1151 or do you mean something different?

There are two types of LGA 1151. The LGA 1151 used on the 7700K is based on V1 and Z370 boards only support the V2 type (8th/9th gen).

You should have done more research, all of this stuff can be easily accessed. 

https://www.asus.com/uk/Motherboards/ROG-STRIX-Z370-F-GAMING/HelpDesk_CPU/ 

 

I don't know where you want to go from here but you've got two options...

 

1) Sell the Z370 board and buy a Z270 board.

or

2) Keep the Z370 board, sell the 7700K and buy an 8th gen chip or an 9th gen chip (requires BIOS update).

My friend ordered both parts from Amazon. Would it be possible to send one part back and trade it or get the money back?

You could try, what are you planning to send back?

I would rather consider the CPU and maybe Amazon could trade it with an i7 8700k (which is supported by the motherboard right?) and its approximately the same price. My friend could just give them a few bucks more right? Btw its my friend's pc not mine. Or would you suggest me to send the motherboard back?

The 8700K is supported on that board, I'd talk to your friend to see what he wants to do.
