Just received the 990FX Extreme4 from Amazon. Running it with a pair of G.Skill 8GB sticks, and a AMD FX8350. Install went fine. However, when I power it up, the system will power up, and then turn off. if hold the power button for a second, the system stays on longer, but then shuts off. No post codes, and the DR Debug display on the mobo reads "00".
I pulled the mobo out of the case and tried to power it on, same thing. I removed both stick of memory, so all I have is the CPU, and same thing, DR Debug of 00.
Is the mobo dead?

Thanx for the reply
here are my specs:
ASRock 990FX extreme4 (brand new)
EVGA 750watt PSU (bought with mobo)
Gigabyte GTX 660 Ti 2gb RAM (bought with mobo)
AMD FX 8350 (about 6 months old)
16GB G.Skill ripjaws (same as CPU)
I don't even have the GPU plugged into mobo.
I checked that the CPU was seated properly, and it is. I cleared the CMOS with the switch on the back of the mobo, and now when I hit the power button, my system flashes on (00 for Dr Debug) and the turns right back off. If I hold the power button on, the system repeated does the quick start up/shut down, until I release the power button.
Would I get a POST if the CPU was dead?
One more odd thing. When I plug in the 12V CPU connector, I get nothing when I power it on, when I remove it, the cpu fan spin and stays on for a while, but dr debug still says 00.
Sounds to me more like that RAM is at the root of this evil.
Exact make/model of ram please. Details matter.
If not already tried, place two sticks in mem slots A2 and B2 and retry.
#1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.

#3 - Please use the eXtreme Outer Vision Power Supply Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be your PSU at issue.
____Consider your PSU to be the foundation from which all else is built upon. Anything built upon a weak foundation is poorly built.
Did you try clearing the CMOS/BIOS, which is suggested for a 00 Dr Debug error code?
turns out the CPU is dead.
