Generally, when you test multiple different parts that you know work with a single, unchanging part (your board) and it doesn't work, generally, it's that part that stayed the same during the tests that is bad.

That said, I agree with bluedevil that you should go over your wiring carefully and eliminate anything not needed (do not connect the front USB, sound, firewire, ect). A lot of times it's just the littlest thing that you missed or connected backwards, ect......it happens to us all. I once sat and swore at a system for 25 minutes before I realized I had forgoten to flip the switch on the PSU

Bottomline, if all the wiring is good, and the board will not post with either CPU and a single stick of RAM and a single HD, then basic scientific method states the constant must be bad.......

Hi.
thanx for all the help. Will spend my weekend digging into my computer.. hope i can figure it out, just not looking forward to it,, since absolutley everything is watercooled in my case.. even the PSU. well.. the dinner table will be occupied.. will post some pics :-)
if everything works fine.. there will be some nice OC going on.. hopefully.

well I used to have a P5N SLI and it was pretty stable with my E6300 and 256 mb kingston ram........but Id advise selling it and getting the DS3......the P5N SLI has no OCing potential at all T_T.....only up to 300 FSB which sucks

Agreed. nVidia chipsets on the Intel platform don't overclock well at all.

If anything is broken, it better be the motherboard... maybe you can replace it for a better one.

I was going to say your RAM is the problem. My Gskill 8000 modules wouldn't even boot with that chipset.

How are your RAM timings/voltages set in the BIOS....you might need to bump the voltage to the DDR....Also, did you try each stick individually? One might be bad...
