RE: Perry's Build
Ok, I have everything together. Not reciving a sigle to the monitor. I have re-seated everything (minus cpu). Everything is getting power, fans spin (Not rear, figure it is bad.) on case and video card. Dvd rom lights up, hard drive light comes on. I unplugged all power connections and sata cords once. I am using the monitor I am testing with right now (so it works).
I don't think this is the issue, but I have 3 non-modular power cords on my PSU. 20+4 is going to board, 4+4 going to board, and 6+6 going to video card. There is a modular line I could run for my video card, but I don't think this could be an issue.
I ended up puting the system panel connectors right to the board, I found the jumper after i did it already. Speaker is hooked up inside, but not a sound from it.
Going to take a break for now, I have some ancient old GPU I am going to try to swap tomorrow maybe.
(PS: I have been taking pics as I go, but I am not going to post till it works. Smile )

RE: Perry's Build
Took cpu cooler off and checked cpu, everything good there, put them back on. Took apart 100% of the PC. Again put everything together, same result. I don't have another video card with the same PCI plug in, so I can't check that. I tried only 1 stick of RAM at a time, rotated them all in there, nothing. I am loving the start and reset buttons on the motherboard though. Smile Don't need to hook the case one up to test. So right now everything is apart minus the cpu and cooler on motherboard. Will play with it some more tomorrow.

RE: Perry's Build
Let's see...PSU is single 12V rail, so the modular vs non-modular cables isn't the issue here.

Have you tried building your PC outside of the case? Your issue might be a short.

Although that no beep at all from the speaker is bad, makes it sound like a dead motherboard, especially considering that it's an open box.

RE: Perry's Build
It is outside the case. If it turns out to be the motherboard, I get to take the open box back and exchange it for a new one for free. That was my selling point on the open box. Now I just have to prove it to be bad.

*** Ok, after a day of rest for me and the computer, plugged back in, it boots to BIOS now. I just put it to minimum on the board and tried it, it loaded. So then I 1 by one put everything back in its place and restarted, worked each time. Speaker did work today for some reason. (Beeped for no RAM installed.) So just need to work on the right setup and install windows 7.

**** Windows Installed. Now just have to put the guts back into the case and boot it up.

RE: Perry's Build
Ok, everything in back in the case. BIOS beeps No VGA detected. Tried taking the card out and re-seating 3 times, no go.

Gives me a long beep, then 3 fast beeps.
Followed by 2 quick beeps, pause, 4 quick beeps. (I can't find anything on this one.)

(If I take video card all the way out and boot.) Same 1st step, then 2 quick, pause, 5 quick.

RE: Perry's Build
I'm thinking that something isn't grounded properly somewhere. Check your PSU, double-check every power cable, make sure that they properly and fully inserted.

How did you setup the motherboard standoffs?

RE: Perry's Build
Standoffs, 2 came pre installed in case. (Not supost to come out or stripped, they just spin.) The rest I put in untill snug. Just took the MB out again and put it back in after checking. They are in the ATX pattern and they line up just fine w the board. Have unplugged all power cords to the MB and video card many times, I'll try the modular ones in the PS again and the DVD and hard drive again just in case.
** Tried to unplug and replug in all power cords, both end in cases. Same thing. Going to take a break for a bit, been at it all day.

Might want to cover the back of your motherboard with paper...

Bad idea, paper flames way too easily Wink

Perrywinkle, when you screw your motherboard on the standoffs, are you using washers under the screws or are the screws in direct contact with the motherboard?
