Basically, if the motherboard is shorting to a standoff, then just removing the standoff from the case or, removing the motherboard from the case is all thats necessary. There's no need to wait to turn it back on again, you can do it the very second you remove the metal causing the short.

Okay, thanks for clarification
I took from my case, and put it on wooden desk. Tried it up, still have problem. LED are up ( start and reset ) but when i press "start" led, no running fan whatsoever is happen.
I also open a help in toms, and heres mine conversation with ASUS reprentatives >> http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1898340/asus-z9pe-problem-working.html
Mine mobo cannot booting to bios. Plug everything to PSU, and when i start it, the fans and PSU not working, but LED is light up. But no q code whatsoever on those.
Is there something wrong? or i forget something to start it up?
Double check all PSU connections again. Check CPU socket to make sure no bent pins. Make sure board is not shorting out against case.
Hello mr Raja
yes, i do that exactly you say.
Double check PSU : all 24 and 2x8 are in
CPU bents : try with different xeon
Board against case : first thing to do
anything else ?
Clear CMOS, check UEFI and CPU support list to check if your CPU is supported and see if you need UEFI update. If not that, not sure what the problem is.
my cpu is xeon e5 2690
can you tell me how to clear CMOS? and check UEFI?
So, do i need to do this test?
