If the MB is in the Case then remove it and if it is on a MB tray take it off - there maybe a short of some form.

Only connect the bear essential - CPU, 1 stick mem in Orange slot, GPU..... no other drives etc... all you need is to be able to boot into BIOS and then go from there.

Recheck the Power but also ensure that the CPU is correctly seated with no AS5 paste on the pins.
Garrrr dangit. I'll try. I posted this on the DFI forums too...so Ima see what comes up there too.

I see from your post in the PSU forum that maybe your PSU does not have all the connectors.

For the DFI nF4 MBs (except Expert) you need ALL Four power connectors installed. These are:

24-pin Main connector (Do not use a 20-Pin with a 20-24-Pin Adaptor)
4-pin +12V connector
Molex connector
FDD Connector

These are installed as per the MB layout in the FAQ.

If your PSU does not have all these connectors or they are not installed correctly then the CPU and MB will not have the full power required which may stop it booting or not be stable.

The PSU must be ATX12V design compliant.

I fixed that already...it was the right stuff the whole time, I was just being retarded

I am doing a full on CMOS reset now. I failed the 30 second and the 15 minute reset, so I am going to try leaving it on the reset for 8 hours now. Hopefully it works tomorrow, or I have to move up to 24 hours....and if somthing doesnt work then...well....hmmmm

EDIT:::::::::::::::::::EDIT
New news. If I don't get this working within the next couple days, I am packing up the mobo and the ram and RMAing it back to Newegg and getting a new Mobo and ram........

I had the same problem with my board.I tried everything but found out it was a short .The i/o panel at the back was the problem.I'd accidently bent one of the sheaths that cover the Keyboard/Mouse under the M/B and it was shorting out on the case.Worth a try
