I doubt there would have been extensive enough damage however some parts of the motherbaord are sensitive and your USB's may have been damaged. I would personally RMA that motherboard and get your money back or a replacement.

Hmm .. I mean the first mobo Asus P5N 32SLI Deluxe wouldnt start at all, the case fans turned on but the mobo just were dead. I just want to know where the problem is, It must be the case or the PSU(power supply?) .. Thanks for all help!

I would still want to know what OS you are trying to use. I ask because some of your problems sound like they are caused by using XP without SP2.

However, having 2 different boards give such trouble in this way....I hate to say it, but it may be an installation error. Definatly try to run it out of the case, place it on the anti-static bag on top of a piece of carboard, see if it works that way as was suggested.

Make sure you used all the proper standoffs when moutning it int he case...make sure you plugged in all the power connectors tot he baord, make sure there is no physical damage to the board.

You may need to RMA it and it's just bad luck, but if the replacement is the same, there is something else going on.

Are you using the same RAM? RAM conflicts can cause wierd issues such as those. Have you tried switching DIMM positions? Or only using one stick? I had a Abit Ic7 that one day, stopped working due to RAM conflict. When I replaced my Mushkin, w/ Corsair X, I had no problems and the board has been working ever since. Keep in mind, that was one year after I built the entire system, before it caused any problems.
*You replaced the mobo....and your problem still exists-> you still have bad hardware. Just continue to swap out components one by one.....if you have extras handy that is.
