Hm, I don't know what else to do to try this hypothesys. I can try to turn on the computer without heatsink and with my finger over the processor, but I'm almost sure i won't feel heat on my fingers before it shuts down. This stock cooler sticks pretty nicely to the MoBo, so you can see under the board it's on the right position. Also, trying to shake a little the heatsink+cooler shows the connection is pretty firm.
As I show on those pictures, I can't find a way to connect both 12v connectors in any way that can match the MoBo slot...

Hm. I'm running out of options, I guess. I'll give it a shot. Batteries and PSU removed from it. MoBo will sleep outside this night! wink.gif

Both 4-pins connect how you have them pictured: the one with alternating square and notched subconnectors goes on the right and the one with all notched subconnectors goes on the left. For the left connector, the notched subconnectors on the PSU cable fit inside the squared subconnectors on the mobo.

Oh, thank you for the tips. Indeed I had rotated the connectors, so I don't think it is a problem at all. But anyway, I'll double check since I messed up with it today after the problems started.

I noticed that once when I tried to plug both, but I wasn't sure if I could really do that, since the MoBo doesn't have clear informations about individual pin voltages, my manual is in chinese and I didn't want to risk plugging +12V to a ground pin. But it's good to know, I'll have a try with both cables plugged in.

@I want to ask one more question! I'm not very deep into OverClocking and I'm not very familiar with Asus BIOS Setup (I'm an oldschool AMI Bios guy =P, from the times we used to overclock with switches and jumpers onboard). Said that, I'm not very aware of which are safe settings for my bios, as I messed around a bit in the setup and I saw there are no "Disabled" switches to overclock, only "Auto" and "Manual".
Which should be the optimal manual settings to explicitly turn off any possible attempt of Asus AI to speedup my system and overheat anything?
I would be very grateful if I had even few brief directives so if I manage to rush int bios setup, I know what to prior before the computer shuts down again!

Thank you everyone! You all are being very helpful!

Update: I tried connecting both EPS12V instead of only one, but got the same issue. I'll try to remove the battery and unplug the PSU and leave like this overnight.

Update 2: I decided to do some tests before letting the main board discharge, so I plugged everything back and tried to turn on. Then, one by one I removed the following components:
All the case wiring
All USB devices
HDD cables
1st RAM card
2nd RAM card
Video card

And I noticed that after each of these steps, when I pressed the power button, the amount of time that the fans spinned slightly increased.
Could it be that my PSU is not providing enough power for everything that is plugged to my computer?
Could it be that any of my devices (or even some specific part of my MoBo like the south bridge) is short-circuited and therefore consuming more power than it should?

Update 3: Still behaves weird. Sometimes when I have nothing (absolutely nothing, just the main board and the main board power supply cable, not the EATX cable), when I hold up the MemOK button for 3 seconds, the board will start up and keep spinning the coolers until I shutdown, even if I toggle TPU or EPU switches. If I add the RAM cards, it will continue turning on, but will present the well-known P67 Double-boot issue - but after the second boot, it will keep running until I shutdown. Any other peripheral I try to plug in, or if I try to plug the EATX cables, or the video card, or even USB Mouse / PS2 Keyboard, it will go back to the original problem: The MemOK led blinks once and the computer turns off and won't turn on again before I switch the PSU off and on. After that happens, even if I strip everything off again, the computer will not turn on through this process anymore for quite a while. I have to wait like 30 minutes with everything stripped off (including battery removed and CLRTC jumper set to clear CMOS) to make these things work like that.

Right now my MoBo is without battery and without cables resting outside the case and I'll give it a day off before I try anything new! If anyone has any advice, I'd be glad to hear!

Also, I found this and this topics while googling around. Situations were quite similar to mine. Should I consider RMA?
Thank you all!

I left the computer unplugged and without batteries and the CLRTC enabled overnight.
This morning I tried to turn it on with one memory stick, one video card and one PS2 keyboard, but got the same issue: The CPU fan spins for less than half second and shuts down, and I can't repeat this until I unplug the PSU from the wall and plug it again.

Unfortunatelly, ASUS doesn't support Global RMA, which means if that's the only option, I'll have to send the MoBo back to China, ask my father-in-law to request a RMA and ask him to send the board back to me when it's done. I guess this process will easily take half year. =/

Does anyone have any other advice or suggestion?

Thank you all for all your help!

A similar situation happened with my friend . His motherboard (Asus P5-N73AM) started giving exactly the same symptoms as mentioned by OP.

When he took it to a local repair center they found that the capacitors were faulty.

They replaced it with new capacitors for ($10) .

Actually some things like these are cheaper in India tongue.gif . Where as a GTX 670 cost $700 mad.gif .

Hope that helps.

I say if Asus wont honor your warranty get it repaired there locally. I dont think it would cost anywhere north of $30.

Hope that helps.

Thanks, I haven't considered that because I had the computer for only 6 months but I have 3 years warranty. In my city there are no local repair centers, but I think I'll give it a try somewhere around here. If it's simple, at least I don't need to wait forever until Asus judges my RMA.

Just did that. The computer was 24h offline and right now I tried to turn it on. It turned on for 5 or 6 seconds, then tried to restart and second time the fans spinned for half second and died again.

Well, I think I have no other option. I'll leave the thread open so after I get a reply from the repair center or from Asus, I'll update it.

Thanks for all the help!

I left the computer unplugged, without battery and turned off for 72h and tried to turn it on today, with just video card and one memory.

The computer passed POST and entered the Bios, since I didn't have any harddrive plugged.
I left it in the Bios main screen and observed the voltage levels, fan speeds and temperatures. After around 30 seconds, the computer turned off. The levels were pretty normal, the processor's peak temperature was 50 Celsius degrees, so I'm discarding HSF mounting and overheat.

I'm tending to believe vish92 hypothesis regarding capacitors. I think it fits, since after a full discharge of 72h the computer worked for a longer time.
I'll try to fix it up and I'll update this thread.

Thank you everyone who helped!
