Hello Experts Exchange,
I decided to finally build my own home server. I have put together a couple home systems before and had also read an article suggesting a recommended build so I thought I would try it. I assembled all of the parts but now whenever I attempt to turn it on all of the fans light up and start for about two seconds and then everything turns off. If I let it sit it will do the same thing in about 5 seconds. This loop continues until I pull the power.
I have checked/re-seated all of the cables, reseated the processor, cpu fan, memory and also the motherboard with the same result. I have also tried a differnt power supply (700W) but still the exact same result. I have also ensured both the 24 pin and 4 pin power cables are connected to the motherboard.
Without buying more components to swap out I am unsure what the issue may be. I have not added a CD/DVD Burner, video card or any other periphials as of yet.
I have the following components:
LIAN LI PC-Q08B Black Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case (Model PC-Q08B)
Zotac H55ITX-C-E LGA 1156 Intel H55 HDMI USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Mobo (Model H55ITX-C-E)
Seasonic SS-460FL Active PFC F3, 460W Fanless ATX12V 80Plus Gold Certified PS (Model SS-460FL Active PFC)
Recertified Intel Core i3-530 Clarkdale 2.93 GHz LGA 1156 73W Dual-Core Processor Intel HD Graphics (Model SLBLR)
Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) (Model BL25664TB1337)
If any experts have any ideas please let me know anything I may have missed. All parts are new except for the recertified processor.
