    Built my first pc in awhile, started it up and everything is lit up besides the case fans and ram. No display, on my motherboard there is a yellow light by the ram if that means much. I was thinking it was ram that is DOA, but i want to be sure.

    First of all, no one [other than you] has any idea what hardware you are running. Post ALL of your exact system specs; ie exact motherboard, exact ram, exact pw supply, etc, etc. Do not post "500W pw supply" Post the exact brand and model# Do that for ALL of your parts.

    Next have you read the guide at the top of the h/w forum for problem builds? If not, do so. If you follow ALL of the steps, you will find the cause of your no POST problem.

    Most people do not like to click on links they do not know; that is why you post the parts here.
    Looks like a decent parts selection. Have you read the guide and followed ALL steps?
    Are you getting any beep code from the motherboard? I assume you connected a motherboard speaker.

    Ram is what isnt lighting up either, tried one in each every start to no avail. Is this ram not compatible? Pc partpicker says it is, and is there a way to make sure it is the ram?

    No, unless you have another stick of DDR4 ram to try or another computer to try yours in. You can try the troubleshooting steps for new builds from the top of the forum. https://forums.techguy.org/forums/hardware.19/ That LED by the Ram turns different colors depending on the problem, If it is CPU it turns red, VGA white,ECT, it is supposed to stay lit until the problem is corrected, Part picker is not always right , I can look up ram for my P43T 775 board and it is wrong because my board has to have double sided chips on the 4GB sticks for them to work. I had to order guaranteed 4gb sticks form crucial for them to work. You may need to contact G-skill about compatibility.

    So if my ram is supposed to light up to show issues, then since it isnt lit at all could be a sign? Im going to buy a stick at best buy to test, if it doesnt fix anything ill return it and try something else..
