You have the Asus P8P67 Pro, when that motherboard is attempting to POST it'll have different LED lights go red and then go green. When your rig powers down/fails to boot, what's the last red it stopped at before it shuts off? They're all labeled.

Also, have you tried a different power supply? Have you also tried using the memOK button?

2 lights, one labeled CLRTC(stays green no matter what), and CPU led(turns red when comp turns on)

So CPU LED stays red, and then powers down?

Few things to try:

1. Shut down your PC, remove power cord, conduct CLRTC (CMOS Clear) with the CLRTC jumper moved to the clear position for 5 seconds, then back.

This event will reset the Intel ME inside the Intel PCH, which should then resolve this problem, and enable high frequency DRAM support from the next boot up.

Once the system boots up right, ask them to enter BIOS setup screen, and enable XMP Profile or manually set the DRAM timing and voltage to what is indicated on the DRAM label then see if that helps.

If your system still won't do it, try solution 2:
2. Try disassemble your CPU, check if there is any bent pin on the CPU socket, if everything is OK, then install the CPU back on and try again.

Also give that memOK switch a shot, it has actually helped many people boot up before. If worst comes to worst you're going to have to RMA the board.

Wow, that SAME THING happened to someone I helped with a similar issue before. We went through EVERYTHING. Multiple RMAs, different pieces of hardware, etc. Turns out it was his HDMI for his TV.

Have you tried completely clearing the CMOS and booting?
