They're often to do with the PSU shorting or bad OC settings -- not sure why he is so sure this is not a PSU issue, but meh. I'm inclined to think he knows something I don't.

I've dealt with various Gigabyte X58 boards, including the UD5. RAM is most of the time an issue. It's not bad RAM, it could be the seating. The slots are kind of wack in terms of the way you lock in the sticks. Sometimes they're crooked. Also, the UD5 takes a long time to boot up. The CPU fan will turn on, you'll hear the GPU fan burst all the way for a sec, then everything will quiet down, and the CPU fan will be still. If you wait a little bit, it should boot, but you have to try waiting for at least a minute. First boots always take a bit longer.

That's what I'm thinking from my experience but I can't say for sure with these new i7 boards and modular PSUs.

That's the thing, I don't hear the jet engine shoot up on the 5870, but the fan is spinning.

That doesn't mean it isn't the PSU, though.

I'm pretty sure it does, because I had this exact same problem. I'm pretty sure it's the RAM. But if OP is positive the RAM is in securely, then try taking out the GPU and starting it up to see if the CPU fan stays on. Also, OP did you try the blue RAM slots?

I had the RAM in the blue slots first before switching them to the white slots. Same thing, intermittent startup.

GPU fan does not make that red line spin like it should when booting. That's what making me think it's the PSU.

Let me make this clear, THE SYSTEM NEVER POSTED. Only the hardware would turn on but will not post.

Can you just leave it on for 60 seconds?

Done that, actually left it on the whole time when I was looking for a solution online which was like 3 whole minutes.

Same thing, intermittent startup, which I think it bad for the mobo and may cause damage to it and to the hardware that's hooked up to it.
