Re: New Build, No POST

Assembling the PC outside of the case (on top of the motherboard box with the antistatic bag below the motherboard) is actually quite a common troubleshooting mechanism.

Just because it is common doesn't mean it is right. If you're not building in a case you should be building on a test stand.

You need something to raise the MB of your work space (the box) and ensire that nothing can short the contacts on yhe underside of the board (the anti static bag).

Those rigs are great if you o a lot of testing as they allow a permanent PSU to a test setup. For the oe of we mostly all fo, box+anti static bag is great.
