The system will not run without RAM, so you will need to go out and pick up a new stick. My guess is that the CPU wouldn't fry until the heatsink was at least uncomfortably warm to the touch at the base.

It literally is only on for 5 seconds. I'm assuming the front panel case connectors are working then.I tried leaving the 24-pin ATX plugged in but removed the 2x4-pin one. Yet no visual on the Monitor. so i took off the stock heatsink and here are the pictures of what it looked like when i took it off.

The time of year doesn't help either!I spent many hours putting the PC together, carefully putting everything in place following guides, and using anti-static methods, but obviously something has gone wrong i have even pushed it a bit to make sure its all the way in. Look for bad caps, scratches, discoloration, buildup of any salts or other compounds, water damage, etc. If ya get any errors, do 1 module at a time.

Sounds like it's shorting out.Click to expand... Definitely try it out of the case. I haven't yet removed the heatsink or CPU as I don't have any solution for cleaning the thermal paste from the chip. If I check the bios temp reading of my cpu it usually says 7C, which is way below ambient room temp.
