    I have just finished putting together a new build with the following components:


    ARIANET Triumph Black Midi Tower Case w/ 450W Power Supply

    Intel Core i3-2100 3.10GHz (Sandybridge) Socket LGA1155 Processor

    Corsair Value Select 4GB (1x4GB) DDR3 PC3-10666C9 1333MHz Module

    Asus p8h61-m le/usb3 motherboard

    Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB SATAII


    When I plug it in and turn it on, the power light on the motherboard turns on and the cpu fan starts to move then immediately stops.

    I have tried reseating all the connections, and I tried different memory from my main pc, but with no change in result.

    Can anyone suggest what could be wrong or how I could test for problems?

    Any help is appreciated.

    have you tried taking it out of the case and see if its shorting anywhere
    and tried to see if works out the case - be careful and do NOT put on any antistatic bags - make sure the board and components are on non-conductive surface


    do you have the CPU fan located correctly on the CPU

    did you use thermal grease on the cpu and heatsink

    Excellent.

    I took the board out of the case and now it seems to be powering up fine.

    How should I fix this? put cardboard or something under the board?

    Thanks.

    Nevermind. I just found the plastic plugs that I had not put under the board.

    Thanks again for your help.
