Send me some info on your build (clocks and whatnot) and filling out the rig builder would help me get your info into the Members List. You could also post a Screenshot of CPUID on the 3rd tab for varification of which board exactly you have. Sounds like the battery. Every time I've had a motherboard lose info it was because of that. If you have any questions, thats what this thread is for!

ive tried re assembling the board outside of the case on the box to try and weed out anything that could be causing an issue.
You've done everything you can do. Trust me, most of the Asus techs will understand this and immediately setup a RMA ticket. Been there, done that with them. Unfortunately, Asus requires you ship it to them (out of your pocket) and they will pay for the return. I sent mine in with a bad Northbridge Chipset. The total RMA time was from November 1st- Nov 17th, including the shipping. Good news for you, the place they had me send it was in Indiana, so your like right there! This is where living right on the Atlantic Coast sux.
Tale-tale signs are when the power button is pressed, the lights come on, and the fans will come on, but not to full throttle. Also, No-signal to the monitor, and no post beep at all.
The only other thing I ask, have you done a proper CMOS clear? To clear CMOS properly on a Asus Motherboard you must:
1) turn all power off
2) Disconnect any power cords going to the motherboard (in our case, 24-pin and 4-pin)
3) remove motherboard battery
4) move the CMOS jumper to the next open pin (instructions on the board)
5) hold the power button on case for 30 Sec
6) reinstall everything back in reverse order and cross fingers.
Had a old Asus A7N8X VM-400 that this was the only way to start it up after telling it to Shutdown.
