yup, barely even runs long enough for it to start to spin though before it shuts down. Literally about 2 seconds then shuts off..

Yup, we can see if the board will boot with the bare minimum parts installed and work from there. Make sure you are disconnecting the PSU from the wall and discharging the system (press the power button when unplugged) before you start removing/adding parts.

Starting to sound like a bad board. Try a single stick (one then the other) of ram and double check that your CPU heatsink is latched down and the fan on it is plugged in properly.

Checked the heatsink, unscrewed it and screwed it back down just incase it had been bumped and was off level or whatever. CPU fan is plugged in properly. Tried both sticks individually, even tried a new power cable and a different outlet just incase. Still the same issue

Only other thing I can suggest is to try a different PSU.

Well I appreciate the help/feedback. Lookin like I'll be RMA'ing this board through Newegg tomorrow. So much for having it up and running tonight so I could start trying to unlock/overclock tomorrow. Ha geez. Probably try another Power supply just for giggles tomorrow before I take the board out.

Try the PSU swap...that would be my first guess. Second would be to RMA that board
post #20 of 22
Have you tried setting it up to POST to BIOS outside the case? I see potentially 3 issues

1. Your case is grounding out your board (yes you said you checked that but any small piece of metal can do it)
2. Your PSU may be dead (RMA it)
3. Your Mobo may be dead (RMA it)

Take the mobo out, plug in ONLY the RAM, CPU (and heatsink), PSU, and one monitor, turn it on. If it doesn't work then remove the RAM (it will still POST to BIOS without RAM), if it still doesn't work its probably a bad board.

Are you 100% sure you have the right 12v connector plugged into the 12v 4-6pin slot on your board? My cousin plugged in a PCI-e connector instead of the 12v 6pin and it did the same thing.
