    I'd probably give it another shot but this time with a lower graphics card if you have one you can temporarily use in place of that HD7870.

    Any other DIAG_xxx LED's lit up?

    There's this: How to Use USB BIOS Flashback - ASUS yet w/o a monitor you don't have a clue what BIOS is currently flashed to. Thus you don't really know if you do or don't need to use the "BIOS Converter" prior.

    I'd say try booting with a lessor graphics card. Then assuming it boots you at least have the knowledge of what BIOS the board is flashed to. There's nothing specific in the BIOSes desc's on the Asus pages that single out your HD7870 yet many times BIOS updates do alleviate graphic card issues in roll-ups.

    I guess I should ask this too. Please, nothing meant by it at you personally, only that it happens to the best of us at times. You do have the HD7870 connected/powered, right?

    I have some options:
    1) Use my 14-day right of withdrawal,with money back
    2) Returning to examination,exchanged or repair. RMA
    3) Self attempting a flash of bios, with the possibility of errors.

    I choose probably No. 1

    Regarding power supply for graphics card both LED lights green.
    Graphic card are approved by Asus for use on this MB.
    Normaly the card is used in another PC with MB Asus P79X79 Deluxe
    From a number on the card EAT X PVR ------------- -A07 1301 GE1011
    I think I can see the bios version is 1301.
    Additional power supply for the PCIe slots are also armed.
    Asus has no sealing of anti-static bag or box.
    MB can therefore has been tested before.!
    But if I buy another MB P9X79-E WS, I would like to know what is causing the error

    Thank you in advance for your help.
    Regards oldi

    Well, do what ya want there with it.

    The Asus site is unresponsive atm but if I recall correctly the V2 version of your card wasn't on the QVL for this specific MB. Again IIRC from yesterday there was a NON-V2 revision, and it even had a specific vBIOS revision listed for it.

    For what I've read of both posts and my own personal experiences with many may boards I would have chosen to swap in a lower video card before returning the board. That just me. I can understand you frustration too though. Been there, done that.
