and your analagy is flawed. cars are built by manufactuers and are generally tested before sold. You being some random mope, built a computer which later failed. The bottom line, electronics are more likely to have problems then cars. And you being a computer builder should know that. With any main board company there comes risk. That could just have likely been an asus board you had to send back.

Anyone will tell you, if you build a custom computer you are risking downtime with failing parts. That falls on YOU the consumer. You dont think hp, gateway, and dell get doa motherboards from time to time? of course they do. only they dont put them in computers and attempt to sell them. they send them back. If your customers cant handle the risk of a doa motherboard, maybe they should buy a dell. I got it, you could buy the dell for them and just jack the price up 200 dollars.

It's not fair to continue hijacking this thread so this will be last thing I say on the matter.
The other poster was right about it being quite a while since I had any problems with Asrock (about 4 years I guess). But I get really pissed when I get stuff DOA and it costs me time and money. I have had quite a few DOA parts and early failures over the years but never with the same company the during the only times I ever dealt with them. (except for A-Data memory, which I had a few failures and no longer buy anymore) There is a very good chance that their boards are far better than they used to be so it is not fair to call them garbage if I have not had any dealings with their current lineup. For that I apologize.

And to the OP, good luck with your Asrock board. I hope you get it straightened out.

Safe to assume this isn't normal? .... (and yes I've tried to do the memory manually and reset cmos)
No, it should not power cycle upon startup. The answer sounds pretty BS if you ask me.

Is the system overclocked at all? Did you get the motherboard new-in-box and build the system yourself, or was it built by the shop? It could be likely that the motherboard is just faulty. But no, it's not normal for it to be doing that. I'd suggest taking it back and having them replace it.

Hey guys problem solved.

It was my power supply ... OCZ Gamexstream 700w. It worked perfectly fine for 3 years with my old build I change out the parts and boom doesn't work (makes no sense to me)... so anyways I picked up a Corsair 650 tx and works fine.
