Parts list -
 
GeForce GTX 1060,  Z170a pc mate pro series, Intel I5 7600k lga 1151, EVGA bronze 500w power supply, corsair 2x8GB DDR4 2400MHz
 
Issues -
 
When i turn the machine on, i get a red light on CPU (ez debug LED) for maybe half a second, then it goes to DRAM and stays red for about 5 seconds. The light then turns off but the fans and lights on the machine continue to work.
 
What I've done so far
 
I have replaced the motherboard (with the same one), i also replaced the RAM with corsair since originally i had kingston and was getting the same issue. I have no hard drive connected because i wanted to rule out any type of connectivity issue. I have tried RAM in slot 1-3, 2-4 (recommended), slot 1, slot 2, slot 3, slot 4. I am getting the exact same issue as i did with previous RAM i had.
 
Please help... the only thing i haven't tried is returning the CPU, but i REALLY dont believe i have a bad CPU.....

So take your box somewhere that they have a backup cpu to test your system with.

 

As well did you overclock on that system and if so what is your heat sink ?

Z170 boards need a bios flash to work on kabylake chips, unfortunately the manufacture did not updater their bios when thes decided to put these boards on the market. im going to replace my z170 board for a z270, this should resolve my problem.

Indeed it takes the mobo manufactures a bit to release a new bios update for a new CPU series, and you need a compliant CPU just to get your system up and running so yes a Z270 would be needed or you can simply get a 6600k to use with the Z170. I think you are making the right choice though with replacing the Z170 with a Z270.
