    I installed both sticks of ram and I got a single beep. I also got visual. Are there any other test I should perform before seating into the case?




    Alright, I decided to give the older psu one last shot to see what would happen and it booted with 1 beep. Could this mean it was the cmos reset that solved it? Should I stick with my new psu or would my older one be fine seeing as it appears to be working right now.

    Set bios to default values (usually F5)

    What brand is the old PSU and how old is it? Personally, I would run it just like it is for a few days and see if you have any problems before changing anything.

    It's a corsair hx750. I've had it for about 2-3 years.

    I would leave it, at least for several days. I have about 3 of those a couple which has been running for a lot longer than that. I would make sure everything runs well before I started changing anything. When you start reconnecting components. Only reconnect 1 component at a time, just to be sure it wasn't a component that caused the problem. By connecting one at a time, if it was a component you will know which one right away.

    Well, it's been running off the corsair for about 15 minutes now. Are you saying leave the corsair running or seat the new evga?

    I am saying leave the Corsair running right now. Just see how it does. Have you reconnected the hard drive and booted into Windows?

    You guys are great here. I really do owe you all! I have one more question, if you don't mind. I know my psu fan won't spin unless it's under a certain load. Is there anyway to produce a load as such to testing purposes before adding everything in the case?
