I will go over every connection meticulously later. Right now I need a break and a change of mind. That'll surely help catch any mistakes I might have missed.
If you think it might be the Q-Connector, just don't use it and try then. All of the correct labels for the pins should be right by the place where you put the Q-Connector. You can always just look in the manual too.

I think a break would do you some good. Don't want to get too frustrated and break something. Also, don't keep pushing on the power connector. It shouldn't be that hard to get in and if it is, then it's messed up or your not putting it in the right way.

Breaks are always good. I couldn't get my computer to POST and I literally slept on it and it came to me in a dream! Just reseat everything and start taking things out and run through it logically. You just might have a bad components.

I slept for a while and tried again. Without the Q-connector. No luck yet.

I really, really hope I don't have a bad component. The PSU and motherboard seem to be ok though. The mobo's LED lights up when I flick the PSU's switch to open the circuit.

From there I can't seem to get it POST though. When I try the power switch, nothing happens. I've tried with and without the Q-connector. I've tried with only one stick of RAM. I've made sure the 24 pin is in all the way (it's in all the way now) and the 4 pin seems correct. I just don't know what else to do.

You just might start unplugging components as I've said. My board also wouldn't turn on at all just because it didn't like this power connector plugged into it. Just try ANYTHING.

I am getting my P5B Deluxe w/ WiFi tomorrow. I will look at it and try to help you out. I will let you know tomorrow after I get it. Hopefully I will be able to help you out. I'll cya tomorrow.

I have the OCZ 700 and it has a power connector for CPU1 and a power connector for CPU2, chances are you do not need the CPU2 power connecter. Try plugging in the 24pin for the mobo and the cpu1 4 pin. Let the cpu2 4 pin cable hang there for now. Now unplug the mobo power and reset the cmos to ensure you have the default settings. Try again and see if that works.

Oh and if that 700w PS will now power your ram there is a problem

Oh one more note, if you have not gotten the 20+4 pushed all the way in I had the same issue at first, I had to actually put the 4 pin in first then the 20 pin I believe. Try that because there are notches on teh 4 pin that are preventing it from going down. I think they are there to keep the four pin connector puched down after the 20 pins sit on top of it, hence why it will not let you push it down if the 20 pin connector is on there. Just a thought.

I tried again at night. I started over from scratch and this time it worked. I used the wrong screws with the motherboard I think. It’s the only thing I did differently. Odd but true. I installed Windows XP and started installing all the necessary drivers. I went to shut down after downloading the video card drivers (would install them later). Then it just froze.

I have no idea why. I doubt something was overheating with 3 case fans on high and a TTBT on the highest setting. I press the power button to turn it off. Nothing happens. I press the restart button, nothing happens. I start getting worried. I flick the PSU’s power switch. Wait. Flip it back. Turn on the PC. All the fans start going and everything seems to be getting power. Then I realize that the monitor isn’t displaying anything. I turned it off again, make sure everything is connected, but again nothing displays. I reset the CMOS and try again. Nothing displays.

What could be wrong? I don’t THINK I fried anything. I tried this morning but couldn’t, for the life of me, figure out what was wrong. I am at work currently and will try again tonight. However, I have no idea what to try.

That sounds like there is something majorly wrong with your GFX card. It could be some very bad drivers or your card is messed up. Also, maybe your motherboard is not reading the processor right. My last computer I had would boot, but not display video or boot enough to get to windows after I was messing with the OCing and stuff. I know you said you didn't OC at all yet, but it might be automatically setting it to the wrong settings.

Did you clear CMOS? WHen i sent the board to you i didn't clear CMOS so if you plug it in right now it will do 490FSB with 4-4-4-12 timming on 2.4v.
