I just upgraded my Mac Pro 4,1 (5,1 firmware) to dual X5690s. I was very careful and followed directions throughout the whole process.
When I put the CPU tray back in, the computer wouldn't post. There are no hardware errors, but it won't boot. I have tried an SMC and NVRAM reset to no avail. Upon pressing the power button, the power light turns on and remains lit. No red LED problem lights appear in the computer. The GPU fan speeds up to full, like it always does on a boot, but then instead of slowing down, it remains at full. All other fans are at normal speeds. My boot drive is an SSD on a PCIe SATA adapter.
Everything was working normally this morning before my project. Any troubleshooting suggestions?
(I've heard maybe tightening the heat sinks down more, but I don't want to over tighten them.) Also, the first time I tested the upgraded tray, the power button was flashing, so I tightened the heatsinks a bit more.
Any help would be appreciated!
