I dont think a case can hold a charge, as cases are grounded. It really does sound to me like you shorted out your mobo somehow. If you tested the psu on another computer and it said the voltages are ok (and let me state here, that monitoring voltages with speedfan is by no means a good way to monitor your voltages) then I would suspect the mobo. IMHO your either looking at the Mobo being shorted out, or a bad CPU. If you havent done so already, try resetting your CMOS.

Man I dont know..You might have grounded or shorted out on the first mobo install...Try another old mobo in the case if you have one and see what it does...I feel for you...

There is no way we will be able to tell you if you shorted out your board or not. You just need to make sure you take afew steps before installing the mobo, ie, discharging esd on the chassis before touching ANY parts (prefferably wear an anti-static wrist band), make sure all of your stand offs are correctly placed and so on and so forth. Shorting out a mobo is hard to do if you are carefull, conversely, its extremely easy to do if you are careless. Also, if you havent tried already, please reset your CMOS, this might fix the problem.

"prefferably wear an anti-static wrist band)," did that , and have reset cmos about 10 times and taken the battery out about 10 times. I have unplugged everthing, walked away for about 30 min. came back to the same thing. That is why I do not think I shorted it out. and that it why I am reaching for straws...

Think is a possible way. Could it still be a case problem. I can buy a new motherboard no big deal.. But will it do the same thing... I have fixed about 100 computers and built about 20. Please HELP

And yuo are dead sure you're not overlooking a standoff that does not corrospond to a hole in the motherboard (thus touching the bottom of the board).

The fact that it worked outside the case, and then failed after yuo installed it, including failing out of the case again, indicates that something went wrong during installing it in the case. Likely indeed a short.

Yes I am dead sure about the
"""standoff that does not corrospond to a hole in the motherboard"""
Thank you guys for your help. So at this point I am still concered about buying a new board. I hope it does not short out for some unknown reason.

Did you un pulg the power cable, pull the battery and then leave your CMOS jumper on clear for 2mins? There is a chance that you got two bad boards. It happens sometimes.

maybe theback plate is buckled or warped? and is shorting out on the solder points? just a thought.
or is there a feed shorting out in the caseframe somewhere?
sure is a puzzler, i thibk you need to put a different mobo in the case, just to check that the rig as a whole is sound, if so its the mobo, if not its still either the case or some component, or something occuring during installation.
i'd love to get my hands on this baby. could do with something to waste time on,lol

It is wasting alot of my time. The employe does not have a computer right now.
To "SNERP" Yes I am afraid that is what I did. I know this board was good. It was my computer(Socket A) before the "Up-Grade" about 2 months ago. and the board worked out side of the case.

To"BISCOLORMOTH" I will try the back plate, but it is perfect condition. though with the new board it may be touching something that it should not be.
