    Testing it with another PSU was the first thing i did. Same result.
    I only sent the mobo-cpu combo to the shop and that's what they tested using their own ram and psu.
    My combo is still at the shop since I cannot collect it before Tuesday and right now I don't know the exact setup they used.
    Could it be a RAM thing? But if it was a RAM thing would it affect the POST in the way it did? My setup just powered on for 2-3 secs and then powered down, no beeps, no nothing...I had to unplug power and then replug and the same thing happened over and over...
    Another friend mentioned CMOS. I would expect CMOS (in the worst case scenario) not to recognize hardware but nothing like what I'm experiencing. Am I wrong?

    OHhh ok so you still dont have the motherboard and cpu back from the shop? Could you still ask them what brand PSU and Ram they used just to be sure if it still does not work with your stuff it may be a compatibility issue. Or I just could have been a glitch in the system and maybe they cleared the cmos or something and didnt tell you.


    Also maybe you could bring your PSU and ram with you when you go to pick it up and ask them hey can I put my stuff in before taking it home with you to make sure its still gonna work.

    That was what I thought as my next move. They said there was no problem and it posted ok. So, if the problem is still there, I could take back the whole setup to check out everything.
    Although the specific RAM modules where mentioned by mobo manufacturer as compatible (in asrock site) and the setup was tested with another psu...
