Finally building my own rig

RE: Finally building my own rig
Z75 motherboard should support IB CPUs natively. Besides, it would still post.

Before you return the motherboard, here's something to try:

Take the little battery out of the motherboard (right below the top PCI-Express 16x slot where the video card goes) and wait 2 minutes for the mobo to fully discharge. Remember, you must have the power cord unplugged to do this. (You should never have cords attached to the back when you're working on a computer.)

At the bottom left of the mobo, you'll find a writing that says "CLRCMOS" right below three pins and a jumper that connects two of those three pins. Move that jumper to the other two pins and wait 5-10 seconds to clear your CMOS. Move it back to its original position, plug back the battery, plug in power and basic parts and try to boot again.

CPUs are very rarely DOA, motherboards are usually the culprit.
