Solved Gigabyte H61M-DS2 with i5-3450 won't post.

Specs: Windows 7, i5-345o / 4gb
Hi there.

My freind and I wanted to build our own PC and bought the following:-
Carte mère GIGABYTE GA-H61M-DS2
Processeur Intel Core i5-3450 - 3.1Ghz
Carte Graphique Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 7770 1Go GDDR5
Catre memoire 4GB DDR3
Alimentation 650 watt (separate power supply)
Graveur SATA Samsung/Lieton
(sorry about the parts being in French)

The CPU was installed on the motherboard with 4GB RAM, 80GB HDD and 650 watt power supply. All the cables were checked in the right sockets, when powered up:-

The first unit will reboot twice before posting Windows 7.
The second unit will reboot continuously without posting.

What seems to be the problem????

Check the revision number printed on the motherboard, then go to the Gigabyte support site, select that revision (ie:rev 1.2, etc.) number and then check the CPU support list. In the right column is the BIOS version that supports each CPU. If you have an early revision of the board, you may need to use an earlier (supported) CPU temporarily and update the BIOS to a version that supports your CPU.

Make sure that you plug the CPU heat sink fan into the CPU_Fan port. Many motherboards will not boot up without the CPU fan plugged in.

What type of heat sink do you have? How did you apply the thermal compound (except on stock heat sink with preapplied compound)?

Please include all specs on the power supply.
Try built in video with the video card removed.
Pull the entire thing apart and bench test it the right way.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
