I recently put together a new cpu and when i tryed to power it up it does nothing.
When I look at the motherboard I can see a couple led lights on but thats it. I called antec today because i thought maybe there was a bad switch in the case...However after troubleshooting we decided that it wasnt the problem...Now im as lost as a goose in a hailstorm. If anyone here has any ideas they would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Rich

It could be your crossfire SLI setup. Take one card out and see if it posts.

If it does, then this is your problem. Make sure that the Motherboard SLI card is "switched" (if it has one) and that you have the bridge across the two cards.

Also check your bios if you get it to post.
