Alright so my PC was working fine, and I decided to re-seat my HSF as my core temps were extremely uneven under load (10c+). I also did a little cable management.. Anyway, when all was done, I turn my PC on to find that it won't POST. It turns on, everything spins up but it just stays on a blank screen.

I've tried clearing the CMOS, and I've re-seated everything, tried each stick of RAM in different slots, but nothing has worked so far.

I noticed two red lights are constantly on my 4850 - does this indicate a power issue?

What do?

8-pin CPU power is in. Also tried a spare graphics card, and that didn't work either, so I guess it's not the 4850.

I don't have any onboard GPU.

My board (in sig) has a clear cmos button on the back I/O. This is what I used.

Tried about 5-6 different sticks of RAM, individually in each slot, tried my spare TX650 PSU, tried reseating everything, tried a different graphics card, tried taking battery out overnight, tried the board outside of the case, tried different PCI-E slots, tried stock cooler incase my Hyper 212 was applying too much pressure.... no change so far.

I'm guessing either the CPU or board is dead, because there's a set of LED's that cycle on my board when booting normally. At the moment the light is red, and stuck on "CPU".

Tried a different Monitor as well as different DVI/VGA cables. And I've been working on wooden floor.

did you take the cpu out to reapply goop? if so check to see if you bent any of the socket pins. If not, it sounds like the CPU Is dead. although I don't know why it would be you didn't do jack ____ to it.
