Hey guys, I've come across an old X58 board, an EVGA FTW3 , part number 132-GT-E768-KR. It was working fine with an Intel i7-965EE processor and 12GB Mushkin Blackline DDR3 (PC-12800). I swapped it out from an old Lian-li case and put it in a Silverstone Temjin case from years ago. I also changed the stock heat sink/cooler to a watercooled Corsair H50. The old mobo/proc/RAM was working with a Samsung SSD (840Pro 256GB) on Win7Pro 64bit. I also put in a brand new EVGA PSU (750W G2). Everything seated perfectly, looks tidy, was ready to go, but, now all I'm getting is a looping POST codes of 00,E8,02,69. That's it. I've tried everything I can think of ... tried various combinations of RAM configs, unplugged and replugged all power connectors. If I reset CMOS, I get the Checksum error, that says defaults have been loaded, CPU has been changed and I need to change CPU settings. I reset again, and I can get into BIOS, change the settings, but it will not POST. Just goes into those looping POST codes.

Anyone seen this before?
