glad you got/getting it sorted.

Remember the golden rule of statistics: A personal sample size of one is a sufficient basis upon which to draw universal conclusions.
Upload the computer to Dropbox and provide a link to it so others may download it to examine and give advice for repairs.

Could be a dead 2500K, or maybe Intel ME FW Updated for Ivy (later/latest BIOS) and might not work with 2500K anymore due to this. You'd have to test the 2500K on another board to confirm if it's OK or not.

ON the R9, I meant it's too new, and might not work on this board, but yes, I was quoting how you said it was "Old" so I see what you mean now

Good to see the board is alive now at least!
It's with a 2x4 kit of 1600mhz ripjaws v. And I'll be testing it in a Z77 board, if it fails there then I'm returning it to the seller and get another one. An older bios version didn't change anything with the 2500k, still failed to post.

And yes I'm really happy the board works because it's in pristine condition and looks so nice, I would have not liked having to gamble with another one. Thanks for the help!

Sounds like possibly faulty CPU, you'll know for sure once you test it in another board.
