I have an ASUS Crosshair V Formula Motherboard AM3+ and it is not posting or giving me any beep codes.
The dram light is on.

I know most of the components for the system work.

FX 6300 (Confirmed worked in a different build)
ASUS Crosshair V Formula Motherboard AM3+ (MAIN ISSUE)
1 stick of 4GB DDR3 RAM (Confirmed worked in a different build)
Antec TruePower 650w (I have tested it a few times, also used a different PSU)
Asus GT 430 1GB (Confirmed worked in a different build)
Stock AMD FX CPU Cooler (Confirmed worked in a different build)
WD 5400rpm 80GB HDD (Confirmed worked in a different build)

I have tried to disconnect almost everything with only the ram, CPU, mobo, CPU cooler, and PSU.
It still gives me no post with the dram light on.
Then I take out the ram and it gives me the same results.
Then I take out the CMOS battery and turn it on. It does not post, but the dram light turns off and the cpu light turns on.
It looks like one of the RAM slots was damaged? One of the tabs has a broken piece missing.
I have attempted to reseat and clean the CPU socket.

Does this mean the connection to the CPU and ram has failed, rendering the mobo broken?

Did you try the RAM in a different RAM slot? Is the RAM in the correct slot A1, A2, B1, B2? Also, I think your ram is the issue

Yes, I have attempted to move the single 4gb stick to all slots.
I have also attempted to populate all 4 ram slots as well.

I will attempt to try and clean the slots tomorrow and reinstall the ram.

Thanks for the quick reply!

Lol all good,
Just remember that your cpu needs a graphics card as it doesn't have intergrated
