I recently upgraded my motherboard to the msi p45 diamond. I installed new ddr3 ram (2 1gb ocz 1333) and a Pentium dual core processor. Now i get power but no boot. I tried 2 other cpu's, a pentium d which was the same and an old pentium 4 which restarted the pc every couple of seconds.
None of the cpu's heated up when started with then fan off so god knows whats stopping them.
Please help before i stick my feet in some decently priced hardware. ; ;

24 pin main power and the 8 pin cpu power connector connected?
Does the board support the cpu's on the cpu support list?

Next thing is without a fan you can destroy a CPU in seconds so that's not a good Idea it will heat up internally and shut itself down in less then 5 seconds without the heat sink tightly pressing the cover down.
Do you have the board in the case or on the bench?
Have a go at the bench test using 1 stick of ram, cpu & heat sink assembly, video card, keyboard, no drives clear the CMOS and see what you get> https://www.techsupportforum.com/f255...em-171424.html

Is the connector physically broken or it doesn't have power to it?
Can you describe how it is broken?
