Could also be something as simple as the CPU heatsink not properly seated.

I double checked that there were no bent pins on the cpu socket, and triple checked that the fan was seated correctly, as well as plugged in.

Did you make sure the power plug to the cpu was in and did you have at least 1 stick of memory installed ?

Yes, there is power to the cpu. I have no ram installed, that would add variables to the problem I'm trying to narrow down. I have tried it with RAM, but nothing stays on long enough for the mother board to even beep

In Topic: Hard Drive Warranty

I'm just extremely wary of any "refurbished" drive. Out of the two I've gotten from Seagate, one lasted 6 months and the other lasted a year.

I know it varies from person to person, but I've had multiple Seagate drives fail in the span of just a few years. Regardless if it's just terrible luck, I'm going to stay away.



Didn't realize this post was old, woops

In Topic: 4th Failed Hard Drive

Sorry about no specs, my case is a cooler master storm sniper, so plenty of airflow. My PSU is an 800W silent pro gold from cooler master. Everything plugged into an outlet goes through a strip that claims surge protection, but I don't know much about surge protection, so that may be a reason. I rarely ever move the case, only to clean or work on the inside. I know it could all just be coincidental but there's still a nag that it is my fault. I learned the refurnished ones are awful, and I don't really know what I expected, but they were free because of the warranty on the first one I bought, and its hard to pass up free when you don't have a lot of spending money. Lesson learned though, what brands have you had luck with HDD wise? I don't think I can do Seagate again.
