Did you move the CLRTC_SW jumper to enable the clr CMOS switch? If not, then you're just practicing.

Dude, you need to shut the machine off and remove the power cord from the wall receptacle and remove the CMOS battery and THEN press the button for a full CMOS clear. If the machine is still running then you're not clearing CMOS and I would fear damaging something doing it while the machine is running. Removing the battery is optional, but I would do so for a full clear of CMOS stored information.

Quote from another thread:
"CMOS holds details of attached hardware while BIOS stores various settings and values that apply to that hardware as well as motherboard settings. If the hardware has changed for any reason, CMOS details will not match the current setup and the BIOS values will no longer apply and will either fail or become unstable. I'd recommend a CMOS reset when installing or changing any hardware that has a BIOS value which covers just about everything short of inserting a neon light."

Clear CMOS:
1.) immediately following a new build, before power is applied
2.) immediately following any hardware change/upgrade
3.) after flashing BIOS

Being an experienced baiter...

I get the feeling he's just trolling...here's why.

He said he tried without RAM, someone called him ot on it, and he then replied he was joking.

if you've tried different mobo's, different psu's, different gpu's it has to be the cpu or ram either that or user error

im going to give another motherboard a shot before trying a different CPU.

That's actually one test in an effort to produce post beeps to determine what's going wrong, as follows:

Disconnect all hardware except main board power connection and the cpu+HSF.
1.)Disconnect the power cord from the PSU and clear the CMOS leaving the battery out and jumper moved for ten minutes (600 seconds). Now try booting with no memory, but with video card installed--- you should get 'no memory detected' beep code, no beeps at all here means the video card may be faulty
2.) try booting with no video, but with a single stick of memory installed in slot B1 (you can try all slots if no beeps, consult your manual for slot options)---you should get 'no VGA detected' beep code, no beeps at all here means that the memory may be faulty or it may have a conflict with the board---try the other memory sticks now to see if any of them produce beeps
3.) try booting with both the single stick of memory and the video card installed-- you should get a single beep indicating a good POST---if so, go into BIOS and set the memory speed, timings, and voltage manually to manufacturer's specs

If you get no beeps during 2 & 3 then I would suspect the memory. If no beeps at all then try booting the board from a tabletop, lying the board on cardboard to protect it---this will test for shorts to the case---repeat the above scenarios. If no beeps or display at all ever then I suspect hardware compatibility, so verify the installed BIOS will support the cpu. A small list of AMI BIOS beep codes can be found HERE. Some AWARD BIOS post beep codes can be found HERE.

Hi marauderrt10,
You are probably gone by now. I have encountered the same EXACT problem just yesterday, and yet I am typing on that computer now here. If you ever encounter the issue or anything like that again, here is the fix:
On your motherboard, you should be able to find some switches that look like this:

Now ignore the red box, I just searched it up on google haha.
Anyway, one of those cables should have RESET or RESET SW written on it. If you read this image upside-down, it should say that one one of them.

Pull out that cable. Make sure you have your computer off, first though.
I hope this helped,
Lakkie
