Or just RMA... 

Yeah, I've gotten in touch with Quo.  I'm bummed that I've got to wait some more, but I'd rather not attempt to rectify this myself.  Thanks so much for all the help.  Slightly ashamed for missing something kinda obvious, but my mind was looking for something specific to the board being incorrectly setup on my end.

1. It might be worth your while removing the processor and ensuring all the pins look ok before carefully reinserting it.

 

Regrettably, that was the culprit.  There's 4 pins that don't look so good.  I've added an image to this post.

ItsJustDave,

 

With no posts, I would be willing to bet it is a video related issue.

 

  1. Unplug the DVI connector from the monitor
  2. Remove power from the monitor and give it time to drain
  3. Power the monitor up and let it auto cycle through its inputs. After a minute or two most monitors give up and place a "check inputs" or color bars on the screen.
  4. Power the monitor off
  5. Plug the DVI connector in
  6. Power up the monitor
  7. Power up the computer

 

Else, you are going to have to contact Quo. My board has not come in and so I cant try to replicate your issue.

     

Yeah, none if that improved anything.  Regrettably, this is my first build in over 6 years (Mac Mini and MBP retina since), so I don't have another box to swap parts with to try and isolate anything.  I'm going to drop Quo an e-mail and hope they can help.

If you are not getting posts, that is good. It is likely something to do with your video. How are you connected to your monitor?


I believe that the OP is just trying is just trying to get to the UEFI interface.

 

I edited previous post to include the following: Monitor is hooked up via onboard DVI connector and I'm not getting any video at all.  No post.

 

I did not see any jumper configuration that would appear to enable the on-board video, so I assumed it was on by default.  Is there something I'm missing?

 

 

And yes, I disconnected the drives after running into issues with post/video

I've tried the memory in this configuration as well.  Still no video/no beep codes.  The only way I've managed to get beep codes is with the memory fully removed.

 

Here goes, let me know if you need more visual detail on anything.

Thanks so much for your help on this.
