The power phase lights go off after about 10 seconds and it will not post.

This is after I got it and it started right up but in my stupid I forgot to boot off disk to reinstall windows and it failed to boot into my AMD based Windows 7.

I tried only one ram stick using both and clearing cmos twice, it just won't post at all

Check your cable connections. I can't think of any reason why an old Win7 install would bork a board into not POSTing.

I've swapped out boards/CPUs several times without reinstalling windows. It shouldn't matter.

Is it a video card issue? I never got to try my gtx 470 since putting the water block on it, this is a first attempt.

The phase lights going out is what concerns me here

Shouldn't matter unless in mounting the block you damaged the card...and on powering it the 1st time, killed the board. I doubt that would be the case.

Check your cabling connections. If you have a PC speaker in your case, pull the video card out-and see if you can get POST beep codes. Or if you have a second card on hand plug it in.

Could be cold temp bug I suppose though I've never gone that far to see that...bring it back to normal temps-i.e. room temp and see. Eliminate as many variable as you can.

Holy ****!

I took the block off, and used a blow dryer to heat up the cpu real quick and left the block off and it post right away.

Wow

Might have been a bad connection, so heating it up might have done something, or just the movement.

I dunno, when I went to bios it was at 70C idle.

I put the block back over it and it was down to 7C almost instantly.

Gee golly dunno what I should do about this cold boot issue.
