It is the PSU. For sure.

I have a lot of experience with equipment that works for awhile and then goes south all of a sudden. Right now, manufacturers are pumping out product of secondary quality and then dealing with the returns. And it does not seem to matter if you stick with quality manufacturers or not. The only time it matters is how courteously/efficiently the mfr. deals with returns.

Some like CoolerMaster and Corsair are wonderful. Others like Gigabyte are ... (sorry, no vulgarity permitted on OCN)

My PSU was a CoolerMaster 1,000 watt (80%) which functioned for a couple of weeks. Then the computer just suddenly shut down. Next, it would not even boot up. And finally, no lights on the mobo, no nothing.

If you do need to RMA the PSU, and you will, I would suggest the US Postal Service over UPS. Why? The much maligned USPS will ship it by air overnight for about $10.00 while UPS will charge more and take at least a week.

Good luck. Buy yourself a tester. You're gonna need it - now and in the future.

Wow,
Thanks man! 26$, I didn't know they were that cheap, of course I never looked.
I Think im going to have to get me one of those.

I guess I just had too much faith in this PSU when I bought it, to even think it needed to be tested.
I guess I was wrong... Lesson Learned!
EDIT:
After thinking about it, I know of 3 other times, it would have been nice to have one.

Also, I should try testing it on a different PSU and if that works then well its defiantly the psu that is bad.

EDIT: you were totally right man!
I tested a POS, DELL PSU with the board and it worked! It was the PSU all along.
And you say Coolermaster is good about RMA's. Its either that or see if FRY's will give me store credit.

Don't feel so all alone on that one. PSU's are the least sexy component but arguably one of the most important. Another suggestion if I might: an APC (only) UPS. Current, even here in the US is "dirty" and irregular, a problem that can really degrade any PSU. APC has saved me on many an occasion.

Also, this thread on OCN might help with wattage calculation (before you purchase) http://www.overclock.net/power-suppl...y-wattage.html

CFV incoming from the Egg! Sold my 2500k a few days ago. I'm putting all my eggs in one basket with BD. I hope it turns out to be a monster!

The Motherboard wont even POWER ON
It was fine went I went to bed last night. Woke up this morning and it wont even power up...
Even if a jump start worked, a circuit might have gotten damaged (from a power surge over night or something) causing a failure to post.

Try:

Different psu.
System out of the case.
Different on switch or just cross the two pins with a flat blade.

Good point. And that reminds me: Surge Protectors are completely useless also! Must be a proper APC UPS (and no I do not work for APC

I have seen lightning strikes jump a surge protector (even an APC) and zap the equipment (flat screen TV in this case).

I'm just coming home. First CPU ever was a socket 754 3400+ and my last AMD was a 1055T. I actually felt bad when I bought my 2500k, I had to get rid of it. Don't let me down AMD!!
