Motherboard : asus p9x79
CPU i7 4930k
Just finished my build. Powered the system on. At first power on it turns on briefly then powers down. Subsequent power ups remain on, however computer won't post. Fans spin, harddrive initializes, but red cpu led light persists.
I have read that this cpu requires an updated bios, could that trigger the red led light? Am I causing any harm to the cpu if this light is on? I've verified all connections, and am now troubleshooting with only having the mobo and cpu plugged in to the PSU.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
