I've recently got hold of the following kit:
Asus p8p67LE (revision 1, I'm aware of the SATA bug)
4gb Corsair Vengeance.
The CPU and mobo were assembled a year ago and left in a box, when I finally got round to setting up a rig on it, I tried a quick boot - just with cpu & ram, and the Intel's stock cooler does half a spin and stops. All that's plugged is Mobo power, cpu power, cpu fan. I thought it may be an issue with the fan, tried reattaching it, but it didn't bring any result.
Haven't got a pc speaker in the case (yeah, thank you coolermaster :/), but I think it's a mobo/cpu issue.
The PSU is a brand new, straight out of the box CM750W.
Any ideas? Please tell me it's something obvious, I really don't feel like shelling out a few hundred quid on new mobo/cpu...
