    Ive recently built my girlfriend a pc out of my old parts since I made the swap to Intel just a couple weeks ago, I get everything put together and plugged in and all seems well until I turn it on and it doesnt display to monitor and the USB 3.0 ports on the motherboard and the case ports themselves dont work and im clueless as to why, any suggestions on what to do?

    CPU - fx 8350
    RAM - Corsair ddr3 (I think, cant remember for sure)
    Mobo - MSI 970 Gaming
    Cooler - Cryorig H7
    Case - Thermaltake Versa h21
    PSU - Rosewill Gaming 550 Watts
    GPU - Radeon RX 460 4gb

    Welcome to the forums. Did you get a POST sound? Did you make sure all the board standoff screws are accounted for?

    I figured out the issue, the cpu pins were bent and I was unaware of it

    The downside to a PGA type chip. It doesn't take much to bend them. Is everything working now?
