I expect this mystery to be solved by the time I get back.

...and don't be talking about me behind my back...

See you later

If you look closely at the standoff's holes in the motherboard, they don't connect, in any way, to the motherboard.
I got that from wikipedia.

Exactly, All I knew what that it prevents the motherboard from touching the case and getting short.

But after Rich spoke about ground connections and all, i googled and found that.

Anyway, point noted.

Alright guys, reset the cmos the RIGHT WAY and i am still having the problem. I will assume at this point, with everything that we have tried, that there is a short within the board somewhere. Of course, this board is quite old (by a couple of years i suppose). And quite honestly, I hate Gigabyte boards too, I tried to stay away but the dang dude brought it over and was like, "These are the best boards you can buy right now!" btw, that was this past January. psh. could've done a low end X58 system within the $1,200 he spent on this rig. Plus, he told me the 3870x2 was the best graphics card available right now, again, this was in January. Psh.

I agree! Your board has a internal short, and not much can be done in this case.

I'd try one last thing- Update the BIOS. If its already done then its definately the board, try to RMA if under warranty or whack it.

But Gigabyte boards are nice I suggest you hold up till Ivy Bridge comes. I'm doing that.

Right Inteller. But oh well, you live and learn from things like this and thank god i have decided to start a sandy bridge build before this stuff happened.
post #97 of 107

well, i would disconnect everything (i did not read 9 pages) and try the psu alone with paper clip jump. but that would rule out the psu then take out some ram 1 stick on mobo an pull a gpu out.

link. i would not try to grab the clip for safety ,dont know if it can shock/kill ya but electrical tape is a ez fix for that 6

Yea, I'm thinking about going with Ivy Bridge, so ill hold off for another however many months until it comes out. This was just a gaming computer anyways, nothing too important at this point.
