I believe you already stated that you don't, so go the newegg route and that will give you time to both test your gear and return the new stuff within the 30 day return period. I know it sucks, but there's no guarantee that either one of your rma'd pieces are any good either. As I said earlier if your board is lighting up and running all the rest of your gear and the vid card fan is running at 100% it's you CPU. At least that's what it was for me.
Its taken me almost one year to buy all my components,bout 2 months now on rma's,think ill wait another month and rma every damn part except the case,think that should do the trick,if not its not meant to be,ill go buy a dell lol.

Just kidding,ive been taking my computer apart for the last hour,decided to check my power supply by taking a 400 watt out of my other computer,its got a 8pin and 20 pin power connector and only 1 6-pin pcie connector.Placed my motherboard on its box with ram and cpu still attached.Hooked up my video card with the 6 pin and 8pin connector from my 750 watt.Used the main 24pin from my 750 watt,hooked up the 8pin cpu power from the 400 watt.When i hit the power button the cpu phase blue leds had 4 lights glowing/which is strange because its always only had 2 of the leds glow.Also seems the cpu fan is spinning faster,any suggestions?

Whoa... I've never seen anyone go past 2V before. It might be better if you read up on the max safe voltages when overclocking on your next chip. It'd be a shame if you fried a 1090T or any i7.

Hi guys! I'm a new system builder and i got this same problem stated by Bartleby3004. This happened after i got my board(new replacement after i RMA'd the 1st one;Persistent FF code) working for 9 days and when i was closing MW2 it just shutdown. Turned it on, no debug leds, no POST, number 1 cpu phase led off the 3 others were lit up, MB lights on, memory and hdd led staying lit.

I couldn't turn the system off without directly turning it off by the PSU switch since power and reset weren't responding.

Took the board out, barebone on a non-conductive surface and reseat cpu. Same thing as stated above. Tried one stick of RAM, alternate it with the other, no POST.

Cleared CMOS with the power cord off, no POST.
Note: I'm new with this so I'm not sure about the switches with clearing the CMOS.

RMA'd this board again and hoping to get the new one next week. I just want to get some info regarding this problem. Thanks!

Hey -deathrow- make sure your 8 pin cpu power is seated properly and make sure you are using your motherboard standoffs and the motherboard is not grounding out anywhere. btw i had the same prob as you and it turned out to be my cpu 8 pin extension not connected properly.

Hi crunk! Ok, I'll take note of that cpu 8 pin extension when i get my replacement but it seems weird since I'm pretty sure all were seated properly even when i took it out of the case and reinserted it. My motherboard standoffs were properly placed, aligned and the screws too.
