So I upgraded my graphics card, RAM, and processor yesterday and have incredible issues since. At first I coudn't even get the processor to fire up, and I realized it was one stick of RAM improperly installed. Fixed that. Then, everything worked. As I walked into the other room to relay the good news, I came back and my computer monitor showed "No signal" and I noticed that the processor fan wasn't working anymore, along with all my tower fans and had no solution except to hard-power my computer down. I'm not sure if maybe my Power Supply doesn't have enough juice? My bios is updated too...Can I anyone help me untangle this debacle? Ultimately, I've reinstalled the old processor again which is how I'm currently asking for help...

Motherboard is M5A97, right? 500 watts is enough. However that PSU is not very good quality and every part can broke sometime. I would try with another PSU if system works with FX-4300.

I'll second the PSU.  Get a good quality PSU of about 600W.
