|Alright, yes sure, my apologies. I will give you the information; I assumed this might be a problem. Work with me here; I'm new to this. You seem a little pious about it, though sorry if I've read into this poorly.|
No, I did not benchtest them. Not even sure I know what 'benchtesting' is.
Anyways, specs are (excuse any unnecessary information):
-Intel core i5 processor (i5-4670k)
-Power supply is VisionTek 650W (this is all I know other than it says AC input is: 115V-230V 10A/6A 60 - 50Hz)
-Video card is as mentioned an Asus Radeon R9 280x.
-The RAM is PNY 4GB DDR3 SDRAM DDR3. (This is the one thing I am unsure about as far as being compatible with my parts).
-The hard drive, if this is even worth mentioning, is Kingston SSDNOW 300, and I am certain I installed it correctly.
'If the card has the connectors, they must be plugged in.'
Right, but it shows the card as having two green lit LEDs when it is powered off (implying that it is connected properly I'm assuming). So the fact that the 6-pin connector did display as green before turning red when booting, wouldn't this still mean that it worked since it was green first? Or is the 8-pin still absolutely necessary? I've ordered one of those cheap 6-pin to 8-pin adapters in case I need it. And still I'd like to know, is it possible for the video card to prevent the system from booting?
'Booting without RAM should cause the board to beep continuously, did it?'
No. It did not beep.
Does this information help anymore at all?
