    Yeah, it was the power supply. Returned it, got a Corsair 1000w, worked on my first try, everything since has run extremely smooth. I am very satisfied. Haven't really had a chance to mess around too much with the setup, but hardware wise everything is working nicely.

    So I suggest try another PSU if you got one on hand... if not go to a local BB or something, buy one, try it out, return it the PSU [make sure you can get a full refund first ;) ], and if it works get the real power supply you want.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for the response...unfortunately I just bought the Corsair 1000 ...guess I will pull the 350 w out of the old machine and give it a try.

    Wow, that sucks, you sound like me, get the worst luck with some of the "best" gear. If the Enermax Revolution85+ 1050W still isn't available by the time you figure out your problem I suggest you get another Corsair, it runs real quiet... well if it actually runs. Good luck.

    Ya tell me about it , I went with all pretty good gear and I just confirmed with my 300w Enlight Corporation power supply from an 8 year old PC that it is indeed a power supply issue. Well back it goes....hopefully the next one is ok.

    My system will not power up. Stutters for about half a second then just sits there with no fans running, nothing except the Clear CMOS and Power buttons lit up and two LEDs next to the RAM module.

    The two LEDs that are lit up are labeled '1' and '2' in the middle of the row of 7 LEDs that are labeled from bottom to top '1' '2' '1' '2' 'L1' 'L2' 'L3'. I believe these are the DDR Phase LEDs on page 7 of the manual (Green and yellow).

    The CPU fan, the power supply fan and I think the video card fans start to spin, but only get through a few rotations. The NB Phase LEDs flash, the SB Voltage L3 light flashes, and the Debug LED indicator flashes, but only for an instant. Two green LEDs directly above the internal power button also flash for an instant (I think they are the bottom 2 phase LEDs labeled as 22 in pg 28 of the manual). I see a red LED inside my CPU cooler flash, and my video card lights flash, but again, only for an instant before everything shuts off except for the mentioned LEDs and buttons.

    I am not an a beginner PC builder so I know all the basic troubleshooting, and this really looks like a short on the board somewhere to me. Also, I hooked up a speaker to the MB and there are no beeps.

    My system is as follows:
    GA-EX58-EXTREME
    Corsair TR3X3G1600C8D (3x1GB)
    Thermaltake Toughpower 1200W
    Spinpoint 750GB SATAII
    Lite-On DH-20A4P IDE
    EVGA 9800 GX2
    Cooler Master V8 CPU Cooler

    I've tried various RAM configurations, of course with the DDR3_1 slot and a single stick (used various, doubt all 3 could be faulty). Tried the clearing the CMOS button tricks mentioned on these forums.

    The system did boot up once, I got into the BIOS, enabled RAID, started to load Vista 32Bit OEM, turned around while it loaded and lost power. I haven't been able to get it back up since.

    I got to boot by unplugging components one by one until it powered up... started plugging them back in and successful... temporarily. I have been unaible to reproduce these results with the same methods.

    The only thing I can think of to do now is take off the CPU cooler, make sure everything is attached correctly there, maybe put on the stock cooler and give that a try. Else it sounds like I've got an RMA on my hands, but any ideas please, let me know.

    I have the same problem, I changed the moteroard with another new EX58-Extreme, but didn't solv the problem, I suspected it is the Thermaltake PSU, but too bad it is out o warranty

    I should buy a new PSU some time soon as it is really holding me back!
