Just finished new computer build but when I turned the power on i get one long beep before it shuts down. I tried the basics checking cables and memory. If I remove the 8pin power plug it will stay on just beep continuously. As far as I know my power supply works,its a 550 watt I took from my last computer that's been running for the last ten years.

I can post the components when I get home.

As far as know the heatsink assembled properly.

Yes the fans turn on for the second the pc powers on.

The heatsink is a Corsair h60 liquid cooling system and came with thermal paste already on it. Should I try removing the paste that came on it and applying my own?

Yeah you may wish to do that.

Always double check your parts to see if anything came loose or is connected properly.

One quick easy thing to try: reset the BIOS back to factory default. If you need help with this post back. Twice I have had a new-build refuse to post on me until I reset the BIOS.

At this point, you can spend literally days trying stuff. My suggestion is to bite the bullet and do a complete bench build. If you follow the method outlined Here you will find your problem. Otherwise you will be thrashing about randomly trying this and that. I have been there.


Help Requests: If there is no reply after 3 days I remove the thread from my answer list. For further help PM me.

Found out the issue today, turns out the z370-e motherboard and the 7700 CPU were not compatible. The z370-e only works with 8th gen CPU. Had to down grade motherboard to the z270-e.

Much wiser option is to change CPU as i7-7700K is about the worst CPU you can buy right now. So I suggest you keep motherboard an return CPU. Buy something like i5-8400 or i5-8600K.
