Issues after upgrading cpu

Wonder if anyone can point me in the right direction here. Have just replaced the CPU on my gen 8 microserver. Went according to the video above. Upon booting the server up, there is a clicking sound coming from the main board. Regular as clockwork, and the server isn't posting. Any ideas? I've swapped back to the G1610T CPU, but still the same issue. And just make it interesting, I don't have access to a monitor or keyboard.

For what it's worth, I've now got it connected to a monitor, keyboard and mouse, but it isn't outputting anything either by HDMI or VGA cable.

What add in cards and drives do you have in it? As for the clicking, did you check cables near the fan?

I've reseated all the cables about 6 times. Just have a video card added. Have removed all the drives one by one and all at once, but same result. 

Fan sounds normal for startup routine, but the double beep as the server boots doesn't occur. 

 

LEDs are out on the motherboard, with two in particular keeping time to the clicking sound.

I'll pull the video card now. How do I check the bios?

 

Btw, thank you. 

Edit: have pulled the video card, no difference. Unsure how to check bios as it doesn't show anything on the monitor

Have you logged into iLo to see if errors are showing up there?

I have never used ILO, the unit has just been used as a Plex server. It was working just fine until I swapped the CPU over to the Xeon, after that, it hasn't booted properly once. 

On a cold boot, the server switches itself off. When the power button is pressed a second time, the fan starts running at a high level, and the rhythmic clicking sound begins. 

Sorry, I know it isn't much to go on.
