Your going to need a new power supply then. The new motherboards come with a 24 pin plus and additional 4 pin connection "almost positive" so your going to need a new power supply with a 24pin. Also older power supplies were a 20pin plus 4 pin. That should be your problem

You didn't list your power supply but Lucky23 is correct. The latest power supplies come with a 20+4 ping config, and then there is the additional 4-pin connector for the motherboard as well.

With all you have spent on this system, don't get anything but the best power supply.

The APEVIA ICEBERG ATX-IB680W-BL ATX12V / EPS12V 680W Power Supply comes with the following connectors.

1 x Main Connector (20+4 pin)
1 x 12V P4 / P8 (4/8 pin)
8 x Peripheral
4 x SATA
2 x Floppy
2 x PCI Express

Did you connect the 20+4 and the 4pin CPU power connector to your motherboard?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Absolutely! Yes, you need both the 20+4 AND the 4-pin connector attached to the motherboard.

Try that and report back. :thumbsup:

Looks like a good power supply. The 8-pin connector is for dual processors. You should be able to connect just 4 pins.

ok the main connector into the mb is 20 pin. there is no + 4, there is a 4 pin but when i plug it in, no power. remove the 4 pin it powers up, all fans and lights even on the gpu, but no signal to the monitor. also no post beebs even though i'm sure i have speaker hooked up right.

If your motherboard has a 20 pin connector then connect the 20 pin on the power supply into the motherboard then you should have an additional 12volt 4 pin that should plug into the motherboard also. The 4 pin is usually right next to the CPU
