    hey all, noob question here. I’m on my 6th build but first time using intel. I have a diypc full Rgb tower with built in color control. A gtx triple windforce 2070 8gb gpu, intel i8-9th gen coffee lake with o/c at 4.6hz, gigabyte z390 Rgb monk, and a thermal take Rgb processor cooler fan. Upon my first power up. The cpu fan kicked on and lit up and then shut down and I am getting a 3 beep, pause, 3 beep from my problem indicator speaker along with no boot. Everything is powered and working though. Could someone possibly have an educated guess on this matter? Google gives me terminal nightmares lol

    Do you know the brand of the BIOS ? Maybe the manual has a screen shot that tells you. If you know that, then you can search for BIOS beep codes thru Google.

    The hardware/system builder experts here should be able to help you if a DETAILED description of the hardware (motherboard, processor, graphic card, RAM, power supply, etc.) is provided.

    is not a correct description for the motherboard.

    intel i8-9th gen is not a correct description for the processor.

    I'm glad to hear you resolved that issue. (y)
    Are you using a wireless or wired keyboard?

    USB but it’s a rose will and needs software. So I had to go purchase a good old school basic keyboard. My current graphics is also broken as I just found out so I’m awaiting my gigabyte gtx2070 triple windforce 86b

    Dave I've edited your last post for lanuage. Even when in the form of an acronym it's not appropriate.

    It was a common acronym that's widely used but not necessary in a computer tech forum. It's not a serious thing but thanks for the apology.
