Do you have your setup in the case? If so it is possibly a short between the motherboard and the case standoffs.

I posted this in my thread in the AMD CPU section, but I want to hear from you guys as well.

Hi guys, I had an unfortunate incident happen just over an hour ago. I was playing Vindictus and I started getting crashes so I decided to reboot and upon reboot, my computer suddenly turned off, though the LEDs on my motherboard stayed on. So I ended up switching off my PSU and let it sit for a few minutes before powering it on again. I powered my rig up and all I got was lights/fan movement for a split second and then nada.

Please don't mention standoffs or any shorts because I ended up disassembling my whole rig apart (even my cable management that I had worked so hard for ). To make things simple, I tested the psu by itself by using the paperclip method (green wire with a black one) and the PSU powered up, fan spinned, and LEDs lit up.

I took off all the parts, until it was just the motherboard and cpu. Connected the 24-pin and the 8-pin for the cpu. Same result, lights up and fan movement for a split second. Then I tried taking off the 8-pin for the CPU and my motherboard worked! LEDs lit up, my Yate Loon fans started spinning and it was giving me FF code(no boot). I tried putting the 8-pin back again and it would not work.

So my guess is that the PSU works, the motherboard works, but the CPU is dead. I will test my PSU with a voltmeter later today, since I'll be going to sleep soon, but it's a seasonic-made PSU, so I doubt it's failing on me. I've only had my whole rig for about a year and two months, so the PSU should still be working strong. Btw, my 955 was only overclocked to 3.8ghz with 1.44v and my temps were mid-40C, so everything was in check.

Do you guys think it's my 955 that's dead? If it is, can I still get it RMA'ed? It has a 3 year warranty and it's only been a year. It is not lapped and there is no physical damage on it, aside from the few scuff marks from normal use.

Thanks for reading this through and I hope I can figure what's the problem.

Actually sounds like fried VRM's Can you grab a CHEAP AM3 chip to test with?

Like this ~$40
You could RMA it to AMD but I would grab that cheap chip and make sure the board is still good.

Try powering the system without the 8 pin mobo cable. IF its the VRMS, the system should power on without it, but be dead still with it connected. I just did the same to a cheapo am2 board. With 4 pin CPU power cable connected, CPU and PSU fan twitch on for a second, with it unplugged, system will power on, but nothing happens because there is no CPU power, LOL... That means its the VRMs or chokes, etc...

Thats the main reason I bought the Anfi-Tec gd70 NB/VRM waterblock... I did same thing to my first Gd-70 too
