ok i took everything out, including motherboard, checked everything over and reconnected everything, but it still doesnt work. its like when i go to switch it on it sends a tiny amount of power to make the pump led flash and the fans to twitch then decides not to boot, any other ideas? or is my mobo screwed?

It sure sounds like 1 of three things, dead PSU, loose or bad stick of ram, or a short. I have also had a board not boot because the mountings on the HSF were too tight, loosened slightly and the thing ran fine.
First you need to verify the PSU is working, unplug everything and jump it by connecting the green wire to any black wire on the 20/24 pin connector and plug in a fan or something to it .

It will not boot without any ram, you need at least one stick in there. HSF is the heatsink fan on the CPU/ waterblock

Somebody said that ASUS boards need a fan in the CPU Fan header, stick one in!

Dude, ok your PSU is dead, or you ESD'ed something, thats the only logical reason that this could happen.

sounds more like the power switch connecter is the wrong way round on the motherboard. It shouldn't make a difference but i had a similar problem on an asus board a couple of months back. System wouldnt boot until the connector was right.

any1 come across this? any ideas?

cheers guys and gals
Random idea, but make sure you don't have a floppy cable installed backwards, as that can cause the system to stop booting in less than a second like you have reported. If you don't have a floppy cable installed, then my only suggestion is to make sure you don't have a CPU short from thermal grease and your water block is seated correctly (both of which I'm sure have been suggested already).

no, doesnt work like that. the power switch just shorts the two pin so either orientation will work. plus he says the system turns on just no post.

what does the debug LCD say?

edit:

this happen to me once in my striker II but it turn out that i had a faulty ram. try taking out all the ram and testing one by one in the first slot

plus wouldnt hurt to clear CMOS take out the battery and let it sit for a while
