Memory: Corsair (I know I know ) 1333MHz 1.5V 2GB x2
Video Card: GeForce 8800 GTS
Power Supply: Antec 750W
That's all I'm limiting myself to until I am able to get this thing to even boot up. The system will turn on for about 3 seconds before shutting itself off, then repeating again and again. On a previous board (Asus) this was fixed by removing the 8pin power connector, but it still would not POST. With this board if I remove the second power cord it only turns on for half a second before shutting off. I have had a few friends come over to double check my work and I'm sure nothing is missing.. any hints on what the problem could be? Any help would be appreciated!
So far I have:
Removed CMOS battery for a minute
Switched out power supplies
Switched out memory
Switched out chassis
I just can't believe I could possibly get another board that doesn't work from TigerDirect.. Asus tech support just kept telling me to send them back for replacements. I would love to believe the Intel community would know what I might be doing wrong..
