Hello, newby here building his first home server.
Got my CPU, Memory and fans plugged into the motherboard and power supply. Powering up turns on all fans but no post, no beep, no bios.
Motherboard: ASRock Z170M Pro4s
CPU: Intel Core i5-6600k LGA 1151
CPU Heatsink: Thermaltake CLP0556-B
Memory: Samsung DDR4 2133MHz 8GB (x2)
PSU: EVGA 80+ 600W ATX 12V
Here is my fear. I initially did a breadboard build without the heatsink fan installed. I've read online that this could have fried the CPU... Could that be the issue? Anything else I can try to troubleshoot why I'm not getting a post? I realize this might be a vague and open ended question...
Thanks in advance!
