I'll try to make this simple.

 

I have an MSI h61m-p23 board (2nd gen) with a i5-2500s and 8gb memory (ddr3) 600w Corsair PSU.

I also have i7-3770 (non k) Ivy cpu, and I am aware you can run Ivy cpus on h61m motherboards with correct bios. (I am not a stranger to bios flashing).

 

Now, following the direct instructions from MSI website, I upgraded the BIOS with the specific one to support Ivy cpus. Went smooth, 2500s still runs fine. I clear the CMOS then go to exchange the 2500s for the 3770, and with the 3770 inserted, the pc turns on/off. (ie fans spin on for a bit then off, then repeat). I have attempted the 1stick of ram, one component at a time procedure, no go.

 

I insert the 2500s back in and it runs fine.  CMOS settings changed but beh. Works AS NORMAL. tHE H61M cpu support list DOES list the 3770 as compatible.

 

Questions I ask are:

-is 600w COrsair enough to run the 3770 (using onboard gpu)

-Not enough thermal paste?

-WIll the 3770 start up without thermal paste (just to see if it posts).

-ANy other ideas?

Does anyone know of a direct reliable link to bios that supports the h61m-p23 bios updates? Not sure bout msi, but will tyr others.

looking at the specs of your board and info for both cpu and MB, it should work.  being that your having issues leads me to believe your I7-3770 may be defective.

 

I would update to the most current bios not just the one that supports the processor.   and then test again.
