That's interesting, maybe this is an APU + ASRock specific issue..

Other possibilities are a cmos reset caused either by accident or by a bad cmos battery. Either way it sounds like the bios is not remembering the settings.
No the system went back into the ITX case fully built, exact same config. When my lil GPU arrives I'll be able to fully test the system while it's installed in the ITX case. Then I can rule out which part is at fault, part of me thinks it's just a specific ASRock issue, soemthing that maybe fixed with a bios update. I'll update when GPU arrives.

Cuz i know some boards default bios it comes with will default the main video to pci-e, thus you get a display with the 7850 and no display when you use the onboard video. Happened to my brother just recently... and yeah lol
Lol, yeah that was how the system was able to work outside of the case, if you read the OP.
I had the system up and running using the onboard GPU and not PCI-E set up in bios. When I transferred the parts into the mini ITX case with the exact same config I got no display again. I took it apart it again and this time the 7850 would not give display either. I've ordered a cheap GPU to test the system properly while it's inside the ITX case, I can rule things out then, problem is Easter weekend, won't get the part till late next week lol. This simple build is turning into nightmare
