i've never ran into issues with powering up any rig i've had, you have a problem if you can't power up without turning the psu off for a minute
Thanks for the input guys
now you can see why I am confused as I have no problem with chaffed wires or with shorting as I have done a visual and continuity test with every wire on the system including my PSU and also done a resistance check and everything is fine. I have tested the switch also and the points do make good contact with no problems with resistance or anything
Its a shot in the dark but I am kinda swaying towards static build up in the I/O Plate or from the case somewhere causing some interface issues???
but that would at not effect my PSU so even IF my mobo didn't boot at least my lights and fans would still be on.....which doesn't happen
its the strangest thing and it is so annoying as I like to dabble with my clock speeds and ram but its been hindering me achieving 3.8ghz+ on an unlocked x3 450 as I don't like to reboot in case it happens again and messes something up or worse dies completely.
EDIT: I would like to add that this problem doesn't happen all the time just very occasionally but its very embarrassing when it happens at a lan party as it makes you look like a total n00b...which i consider myself not Edited by darkstar585 - 9/5/11 at 1:11pm
