I just took everything out and put it back in. Same problem. When I unplug the 8 pin connector up by the CPU, and turn it on, that is when it goes off and on.

I am thinking that it has something to do with my power supply. Maybe its our of date or something. I dont know, but when I unplug the 8 pin connector, it turns on and goes off, turns on and off again. But when the 8 pin connector is plugged in, i get NOTHING, except the power light on the motherboard comes on. No fans, no nothing.

IF you just so happened to pick that board and chip up in the newegg combo with the Coolermaster AX psu, I had the same issue. It was the psu, I switched it out with a corsair hx750

I didnt. I used my power supply I was using with my AMD Phenom X4 9850. Its a 600W OCZ StealthXtreme.

I fixed my problem. Turns out, instead of putting the 6 pin + 2 pin connector in the 8 pin hole at the top of the motherboard, if i put the 4 pin connector in there it works fine. I think i will go get a 8 pin connector for that spot just in case. It feels weird having a 4 pin connector where an 8 pin connector is supposed to go.

I appreciate everyone trying to help me out. Thank you.

WHAT ???
6 PIN + 2 PIN??

There is no such thing as a 6 pin ATX12V connector!!
Don't tell me you plugged in the VIDEO CARD power connector into the CPU 12v connector! /facepalm

I bet that's exactly what you were doing....you're lucky you didn't fry something!

The 8 pin EPS12V connector is always one eight pin or two four pins attached (it's sometimes two four pins, as for older motherboards that only have a 4 pin, you can detatch half the 8 pin and use that). They are also keyed so it shouldn't be possible to put in a PCIE connector into that slot. It might be changed on newer PSU's, but usually, the CPU connector is white, and the PCIE connector is black....
