my question is did you know it was a northbridge problem, did it post that code?
reason im asking is why did you buy a broken board? in hopes or RMA?
If you remember a while back i had inquired to you about your unused FTW3 heatsinks. I bought this board because i still wanted to try putting the NB/SB heatsinks from it on my SLI LE board. when i saw the board though, i was like, hmm, what if i could get it working. the listing described only one visible problem: a broken cap on the 5th SATA port, yet said that the board simply "wouldn't turn on". i knew the missing cap would be a totally different problem so i figured what the heck, ill try it.

well it got here on monday, and i promptly inspected the board. after finding nothing else wrong, i installed it in my case with only the cpu/ram (no heatsink) and powered it on to see what would happen. to my surprise it showed a proper POST cycle on the board, followed by a Video Init failure beep code, so i put my video card in, and lo and behold, it POSTed and i was able to get into the bios. at this point i was like WUT IT WORKS!!!!!!

I then proceeded to install my NH-D14 cpu cooler and tried to turn it on. i got nothing. the board powered on sure, but the display was frozen at FF (boot init) so i panicked a little, but got to thinking what the only thing that a heat sink could do the the motherboard is? it weighs it down, so i lifted the heatsink up and turned it on, it got past the FF code but froze up again as soon as i let go of the heatsink, so i made a custom hanger for the heatsink out of a clothes hanger, and the rest is history.......

You were right, the white LEDs on acrylic with red coolant does look very nice...
Especially with the FTIR effect, looks amazing.
