    Have you tried clearing the CMOS Yet? If not please do, using the long method outlined in my post here >>

    You may also try by pushing the Clear CMOS Button on your board for one minute, with the PSU Unplugged or Shut off.

    If you still do not have any luck you should remove the CPU and check to be sure there are NO Bent pins in the CPU Socket.

    well sadly non of that worked. cleared the CMOS using the guide and using the button. took out the CPU none of the pins look bent at all. any other ideas?

    alright ill give that a try. just to note something that i have noticed. the same lights (DDR phase LED) come one no matter what happens. even if all the RAM is out of the mother board

    Ahhh... that would be an issue for sure then

    Nice to hear I think you have solved it!! Sorry to hear about your PSU though!

    *EDIT*

    That PSU was DOA??? Ouch, sorry to hear! I always heard great things about that brand, but I guess DOA happens with all companies. Good thing is you bought from Newegg so your RMA Will be painless.

    If you call in and complain you can likely get sent a free shipping label to return the PSU. Ask nicely but firm, I always get one emailed to me for RMA's, always call in though.
