Take the board out of the case, put it on a piece of cardboard with CPU, 1 stick of memory and 8 pin and 24 pin plugged in and power it up. If it in fact works it's a case short. Probably an extra standoff where you attached the board in the case.

Rule #1 to building a computer according to me: ALWAYS bench test your system before installing it in the case. Saves a lot of trouble and roots out bad components right off. Better to find outside of the case than after it's built.

Yeah I'm in the middle of the process right now. Thursday will make it a week. You'll get this in an email;

Dear Valued Customer, (_________________________)

Your RMA#: ______________


A. print out this email and Mainboard Repair Form and insert into your RMA package or attach it as a packing slip. You might want to print out another copy for your records.

B. RMA# must be clearly presented either on top of the package, or on the shipping label. Packages missing RMA# will be rejected upon receiving and returned to sender.

C. Please read entire contents of this e-mail before shipping your RMA package to MSI.
For Notebook/AIO RMA (Both MSI Brand & Barebone Notebook/AIO), it is required to return the entire unit including components such as Battery, AC adapter and Optical drive unless instructed not to otherwise. Please remove any passwords (if available) from the OS/BIOS or provide it as a note, otherwise your RMA will not be processed. Please backup all of your user data on the hard drive before sending in the system, MSI is not responsible for any data loss during RMA process under any circumstances.
For all other products such as Motherboard, VGA, Barebone Desktop PC, you must send in ONLY the item that needs service. Please DO NOT ship any item such as processor, memory, cable, manual, software, cables, clips, and original box otherwise they will not be returned or replaced. Please do not ship RMA with its original carton box if you wish to keep it.
You are responsible for the one-way shipping cost from your end to MSI. It is highly recommended that you use couriers such as UPS/FedEx with tracking and insurance.
You must package your RMA items inside a carton box. Please make sure the product is well cushioned and secured using proper packaging materials to prevent shipping damages. We recommend using two inches of padding around the product to prevent shipping damages.
If your RMA has multiple products, please ship them altogether at once.
MSI is not responsible for any loss or damages caused by shipping or improper packaging.
RMA processing time is approximately one to two (1-2) weeks.

I assume that doesn't include shipping time which for me is 5 business days one way.

Oh no! I am not giving up I must have missed something with all of mine configuration but I don't think 3.6 is the limit for this CPU (maybe better cooling but it generally makes no sense - I will spend more for cooler (water maybe?) than a new 965 BE is worth so... I have 2 options:

Either I will increase CPU V up to 1.5 but hmmm that's a little bit risky because it will give a lot of heat and generally it won't gain any enormous extra performance. There is second option (which I believe is more reasonable) ... to change RAM divider to 1:2.22 ... so my RAM will run at its stock frequency and overclocked I can get 1500 MHz an maybe tighter timings.

Nevertheless, thanks for your help!
