everything's in, I went back and checked the mobo connector and it was clipped in, the power cord was plugged in both ends with a good power strip/socket

ok now that we know your cpu didnt overheat and you power supply isnt the problem, its down to the video card and motherboard, in my experience, i guess its the motherboard seeing a brand i dont recognize. Do you still have warranties on them?

have you tried to hotwire your psu? is the connector to your power button connected in the mobo? otherwise i believe it is the motherboard, cpu, gpu or ram, take one ram module out, than test it, put the other one in try again,.....same for the graphics card, (if you have onboard VGA switch to that)......and check for shortcircuits in your case.....

I agree with everything except for the hotwiring part and i really dont think its the cpu unless you overclocked and it was unstable.

I hope it's not the gpu, cause I don't have another one

and I'm almost positive the cpu isn't the problem. when I first got the motherboard I plugged it in without the cpu in, and the red light still came on, so I'm almost positive it's not the mobo

ok you plugged in motherboard without cpu and red light came on , good start, start with motherboard, keep putting things in and as soon as you dont see red light, i think thats your problem. Also try putting you ram in different slots.

umm, no lol, I said when I first got my mobo I tried that (about 3 years ago)

and I've tried using it with both sticks in different slots (and with one out and the other in, vice-versa).

I'll try my cpu, but if I take it out, will I need to re-apply thermal grease before I put it back on? because I can't afford to buy some/ spend the time waiting for it to get here.

also, the red light, if I can remember correctly, isn't a power indicator for the whole board, it's supposed to tell you when the ram has power or not

no i think its a power indicator i think, and that may be ok for now, but if it works and the cpu is messed up then you may have to get a new cpu.

no I remember from an e-mail to Soltek support that they said that the light had something to do with the RAM

so yea do I need to re-apply thermal solution if I take my cpu off?
