Hello guys,

specs:

sabertooth z77
I5 3570k
radeon hd 7950 vapor-x
8gb kingston ram
corsair cx 750watt
corsair h60

only now, when i want to start the computer i don't get any screen..
i don't even hear the bios beebs.

and when i open the chassis i dont see the fans spinning of the motherboard.. the other fans are spinning (videocard chassis fans etc..) first i have 1 long and 2 short beebs.. so i removed the gpu and the ram and putted it in now i don't have any beebs.. anyone can help me please i'm really getting confused and starting to panic.. ;/

also i have no idea to remove the cmos battery on the sabertooth z77 because it's have thermal armor......

Well, that seems to be both, then. Did you make sure the RAM sticks are seated properly? Did you check for bent pins on the cpu?

just removed the cpu cooler.. and when i look at my socket it looks like the 3/4 pins are bent and the bottom pins aren't......

Well, there you go then. Try straightening them carefully (maybe with a toothpick), and BE CAREFUL when you reinstall it.

Think about it: the processor is supposed to sit into it's little 'home' on the motherboard. If some of the pins are bent, how can it sit/mount perfectly on the mobo? Can you take a good pic and post it?

Bent pins = not good. I've straightened AMD pins before, piece of cake. But I hear Intel pins are a little trickier. Luckily I've never had this issue.... Best thing to do is look up on the web and research carefully. Bend them back and you may save the CPU/Socket. Otherwise you are dead....
