also, sorry for double posting, you're sure you have the 8 pin cpu connector plugged in, and shown in the picture below?

you can RMA the board but the PSU is something you did not switch to make sure it wasnt the board's fault. i believe you should switch the PSu first, if it doesnt work with the new PSU then the board is to blame. if it does work with the new PSU then its the old PSU to blame. good luck.

I agree.
You're jumping to conclusions far too quickly.

Test the PSU, make sure that checks out.

What exactly are you connecting?

Are these new parts or used?

You have yet to answer many of our questions.

The PSU is working fine. I used the paperclip to power it up

yep, these guys are right. i wouldn't rma the board just yet, though i know i said earlier it might be the board. have you checked the JUMPER connections on this motherboard and verified they're open/closed accordingly? you may want to skim through the manual real quick and check some of those things out. http://www.cizgi.com.tr/resource/vfiles/cizgi/pms_file/36/rampageiigene_en.pdf also i saw via a google search that if you don't have the cpu fan plugged into the cpu fan header beside the 8pin atx connection it could cause the light to be red. i would read through and DOUBLE TRIPLE CHECK the jumpers on that board. i've never owned an asus board before so i can't say for sure what to check specifically but it seems to me that something like a jumper being wrong could cause this.

Take a good clear top down picture of the board as you have it now as well? Can you do that?
