I had it narrowed down to another mobo(which is unlikely after 3 of them) or PSU anyway, and most people here seem to agree. I have already gone ahead and ordered a new PSU, so I'll see how that goes. This is rather frustrating, but it's going to feel great when I finally get a working computer that I built myself.
Dude it's a volt meter for each rail coming from the PSU and nothing more. What a tester can't do is place LOAD onto the rails. A lot of the time the voltage will read fine until you put a load on it then you'll see it drop and fluctuate past acceptable levels/tolerances.

yea. go to best buy or some other store with a good return policy. Buy a psu, test it, return it for refund. I have done this before. Best buy is the best place to do this because they will not charge you a restocking fee. I ended up keeping one of the 900w rocket fish psu's I had bought. It is actually half decent.

If it does turn out that the psu is bad, just keep the one you bought from best buy. win/win

I would agree that it could quite possibly be the PSU. I would try getting a PSU from Staples or the like to test with if you get a new board and if it works ok RMA your PSU and then return the test PSU

Umm...all these last posts...are we still referring to the OP's motherboard? He said he has the ASUS P8Z68 V-Pro. I have the same board/cooler combo and if installed right, there's plenty of clearance on the backside.

The OP has already stated he has a new PSU on the way.

@HiroPro: I have not, nor do I have any desire to dig up your posts in any other threads, but have been following this one from the start. For all I know, you are a God among men when it comes to computers, but even if you have all the knowledge, it doesn't mean you have all the answers.
I understand your frustration that sometimes consumers take advantage, and businesses get the short end, but that's not what this thread is about. The OP came with an honest problem and a reasonable expectation that the good folks here would offer some solutions.
You have a very condescending tone in your posts, and all the "lol's" and smilies in the internet can't hide your attitude. My first post in this thread quoted yours, and it wasn't until after a few responses from other members that you went in and added the "PS I'm joking" comment and the smiley.

Okay, just had to get that off my chest...

Back at the OP: Please post back when you get your new PSU. Hopefully it will solve all the problems, but if not, we'll be here.

Just my 2c worth,

Rich

I'm happy to say that it was indeed my psu causing all my headaches. I bought a new one(modular this time), and my computer has been running smoothly since. Thanks for the suggestions, everyone. And in case anyone was wondering(since I was given **** for it), the 1866 ram works perfectly fine.

Glad to hear it.

Since I don't see your system in your profile, what was your old power supply (make/model) and what make/model did you replace it with?

That is indeed good news...

Don't worry about the negative folks you find here and there. After awhile you'll be able to filter the signal from the noise.

Whew! I hope you're not out of pocket too much for the mobos. It can be frustrating when a part that usually doesn't have a reputation for being defective (a power supply) takes all your other stuff down with it.
