Happy new beer everyone! Building a PC for young kid who lost his Dad this year... Been a while since I put one together but damn this is putting up a fight. Board Asus TUF B360M-E Gaming LGA 1151 mATX Motherboard CPU Intel Core i5 9600K Hexa Core LGA 1151 RAM G.Skill 16GB (2x 8GB) F4-3000C16D-16GTZR DDR4 3000Mhz Trident Z RGB Power Corsair CX650M 650W ATX Power Supply,80 PLUS Bronze 1070Ti for later but removed because above isn't working. SSD Samsung 970 EVO Series 500GB M.2 CPU Cooler cooler master MA610P CPU compatible but only after BIOS 0803 https://www.asus.com/au/Motherboards/TUF-B360M-E-GAMING/HelpDesk_CPU/ RAM also on compatible list https://www.asus.com/au/Motherboards/TUF-B360M-E-GAMING/HelpDesk_QVL/ On power up, we get all the RGB in the world, CPU fans spinning, but zero video signal, no beeps, no keyboard caps lock etc. CPU is cold - like not even room temp. I removed the RAM and got the no RAM beep codes. Swapped in some other known good DDR4, no changes. Removed SSD no change. Tried DVI-D and HDMI on the board - no video signal at all. I can only think I have got myself in a catch 22, an earlier version of the BIOS and it doesn't detect the CPU and it ends the show early. I thought it might still be nice enough to display unknown CPU at POST? Tried removing CPU and remounting - all pins look good in the socket. Same issue. Do I have to pony up for a lesser CPU to get the motherboard version upgraded? I'm guessing if I send back the motherboard it will test OK, because murphy says they will grab an 8 series and everything will be peaches. Anyone know where I can grab a cheap CPU that is compatible with this board to get the BIOS upgraded. Thanks for your time - trying to get this kid his gaming box ASAP since it is still school holidays for a bit.
