    Changed the videocard (how nice to have all these computers...), same fault. I really think now the mobo is faulty, as there is nothing left to change.

    Can you test that CPU in another board? I suggest as a final test to be sure whether it is the CPU or the board

    But ya, sounds like you have exhausted all possibly and necessary testing options and would have to RMA the Board (Or CPU if is is bad, saw a few this month)

    PSU is up to snuff right? Just checking

    Alas, I do not have anything here where the CPU will fit. But, what is: "PSU is up to snuff right? Just checking" ?? The orientation in the socket? That's OK.
    Anyway, I thank you for all your suggestions, and will RMA board and CPU.

    Sorry. I meant that Power supply is good enough for your system and graphics card right?

    Meaning what 12V rail does your Power supply provide and what is the graphics cards requirements

    Be sure you mark the Board and CPU with a small UV highlighter mark and take a picture of this so you can be sure they do not give you back the same items and tell you they are new!

    Its a 380 W PSU, on 12V 17A. Very basic videocard. Should be enough.
    Thank you for your comment about marking the stuff etc. ! I'm still not paranoia enough...
    Thanks for all the help, very nice and important to have a specialist around

    What card are you using? I will check out it's specs for you.

    It would not be paranoid to mark a item like I mentioned, only WISE!!! Everyone is out for free $$ you know
