Got an open box motherboard from newegg and when it's turned on the led lights next to ram then display cards, then next to sata ports and hangs. As far as Asus is concerned it's DOA, but they really didnt do any trouble shooting. My ram is compatible according to their manual, and I even tried other memory sticks with not luck. I am upgrading from an intel q9650 w/ 790i ultra MB so I know all my other components are ok. The only other new part is my cpu which is an i7 3770k which I shouldn't rule out, but I have never had a cpu come DOA in the last 20 years of pc building. Anyone have any tips or suggestions before I RMA this? I should also mention I tried disconnecting all the sata ports and trying different ports to see if it would post with no luck.
