So I've recently built a system using the X470-F Gaming motherboard and for some reason the system won't turn on.
I've disassembled the whole system and built it from scratch and still the same issue.
When I connect the power cable the motherboard lights up and the standby light stays orange.
Can someone pls help me?:(

So there’s some lights showing in the top right, there’s a yellow, red and white in sequence
they are ASUS Q-LED (CPU, DRAM, VGA, Boot Device LED)

read the manual to see which one light up

The orange LED indicates that the board is getting the power from the PSU. Did you actually leave the system on for a few minutes after the first assembly? Also does your monitor show no signal when the system is turned on?

Yes, I plugged the system in and it was on for a few minutes while I looked over the motherboard manual. The system won't turn on at all, I hit the power button and nothing happens.

Could you try to boot the system with a single RAM stick? Check whether the system posts. Also wait for few minutes, because the first boot takes some time for the display to show up.

So I tried with the one stick and still nothing:( The power LED isn't on and when I press it there's no sign of life

Could you post a picture of the board? Also did you try switching between each RAM sticks and powering the system?

I'm just heading out to work so I'll be able to post a picture when I'm back later. I switched the RAM around multiple times and used a single stick when trying to power on too.

Well take your time, finish your work and come back. Also did you see any debug LED's lit up on the top right hand corner of the board?

I disassembled it all and carefully read the manual while putting it back together and it posted first time.
Do you have any knowledge on the Aorus Liquid Cooler by any chance though?
