New Server Build

So I am building my first server and I am probably making some mistakes but I wanted to connect some few items just to make I get it running.

Here are my specifications:

SUPERMICRO MBD-X10DAL-I-O 2x BX80660E52620V4 Processors Kingston DDR4 Desktop Corsair 750W Power Supply

I have a video card connected on the PCI ports but I get no video, the card is good and the monitor is good and everything is connected but no video.

Here are some photos of my setup:

Maybe I am doing something stupid, but I am this is my first attempt and I just want to get it working. Can someone advise if I am doing something wrong?

Edit: I should say I connected a hard drive with Linux preinstalled but it isn't being found on the network.

Here is a video:

Your video link is broken. I'm guessing it's because you're linking to something we'd need to be logged into for.

I might be mistaken, but I believe each CPU needs a power connector, but I only see one in the picture.

I just read the manual. You also need to make sure you have RAM going to both processors. Right now, you have all slots filled for CPU1 but nothing filled for CPU2. And I confirmed that you do in fact need power going to both CPUs.

Take a look at page 2-14. There's a lot of good info there. I also think you need different RAM altogether. It appears that this motherboard either supports up to 256GB of RDIMM ECC DDR4 or 1024GB LRDIMM DDR4. Check their website for specific RAM that's supported and tested.

Another good resource on RAM: https://www.supermicro.com/support/resources/memory/X10_memory_config_guide.pdf

EDIT: CPU power connector info can be found on page 2-25 of the motherboard manual.

In case you don't have the manual: https://www.supermicro.com/manuals/motherboard/C600/MNL-1701.pdf
