I think the best course of action here is to take everything out of the case, and start very simply. Set up the mobo with the CPU (and cooler of course), and one stick of ram. Set this on a cardboard box, a wooden table, or anything else non-conductive (don't set it on a metal workbench:P). Connect your PSU, HDD, and a monitor and keyboard if you want. Don't connect anything else, and try to boot. Does anything happen?

Just trying to eliminate things, because if a power surge or something killed the mobo, PSU and case (???) simulaniously, then it could have potentially damaged other components including ram, GPU or even anything else. So we're starting with the bare essentials, and hopefully that works. If it doesn't, then the problem is with one of the parts there. If not, then you add parts one at a time until it either doesn't work (and we know what the problem was), or it works.

Good luck smile.gif.
I've tried this, and still nothing. Could it possibly be the MoBo or the power button on the case?

You should try starting up the motherboard without to case power button. The two pins that you connect to the power header, touch both at the same time with something conductive (metal screw driver works for me). Then we can eliminate a bad power button.

That did't work either

If you're not getting it to power on with a single stick of ram and onboard graphics out of the case, and its not the power button, then it can only be a few things. If its a new mobo its not likely to be that, so the CPU, or psu. That's about all it could be.

you tried the one stick of ram and all that outside of the case right?

try booting with just the kingston stick in..
I'm not familiar with that platform @ all

I got it running outside the case (all 3 sticks of ram, disc drive, graphics card, and two hard drives), then reinstalled it in the case to see if it would turn on in that, and it wouldnt, so then I tooke everything back out and reassembled it outside the case once more, went to start it up, and it didn't start at all. So looks like I'm back to square 1

When I had inconsistent issues like this, it was the mobo. But didn't you say this was a new one from rma? It is possible to have a dos board, but without another board to test on, mobo issues are hard to verify. Any chance of finding another board to test with?

usually I have not seen a bad psu be this inconsistent. Those are much more cut and dry. If it works, it usually works (at least under similar load conditions that is).

Did you remember to put stand off's in? Also can you start the pc in the case by jumping the mother board pins? Take a butter knife or screw driver and place them over the the 2 pins for the power for a about 2 seconds or you see the pc starting to boot.

No, I don't have another board to test on.

Yes, the stand offs are in. And the two pins worked the first time I did it, but now it wont, any ideas why?
