    Default GA-P55-UD5 no POST.... x2

    Hello All.

    I've having an issue that is making me feel like a moron. At this point I have two nearly computer boxes because I have bought doubles to figure this out.

    I've built a nice box with the following:

    GA-P55-UD5
    Intel Core I7 860
    4x Crucial 2GB DDR3-1333
    4x WD Black 750
    Antec 800W PS
    2x EVGA GTX 275

    After building it, I had no POST, just a constant power cycle and DIMM_LED.
    If I pulled the memory and leave only a single DIMM in DIMM_1, it will not power cycle, but just powers up with the DIMM_LED. No beeps at all.

    I've done the following:

    1 - Reseated CPU, tried different cooler
    2 - Reseated Memory
    3 - cleared CMOS - took out battery, pulled power, left over night

    After that didn't work, I picked up a second board, processor and memory. Board and CPU were the same, memory is kingston (also DDR3-1333).

    I benched the second set of parts and used a cheap ATI PCIe video and a Mushkin 500W PS.

    I got the same results! Still No POST - just a power cycle and the DIMM_LED is on.

    So... WTF am I missing???

    I've been a PC tech for more than 15 years. This is the first Core I7 I've built. I can't let this thing beat me.

    Oh, and I'm 100% sure the board is mounted correctly - no shorts. Second board is on a cardboard box.
    Also - MD1, MD2, GD1, GD2 are all 4 lit solid. When I called Gigabyte, they stated that they simply mean that the board is getting power. Though posts I've read here say that it mean an over-voltage. So, which is it?

    on your psu you know the 8pin cpu connector? can you split it into four pin block and try that?? it will only go in one way at the top leaving four empty slots below,i ran my ud5 with just four pin so i know it works fine.....just to eliminate cpu over voltage if it has no affect use the 8pin

    Okay, I pulled the 8-pin and plugged in the 4-pin - same thing. MD1/2, GD1/2 lit solid, and DIMM_LED solid.

    I tried this on both setups (the one in the case and the one on the bench).

    Is it possible that I have two of everything that is bad??

    There is no jumper on the board - no jumpers at all...
    I've cleared the CMOS 3 different ways.

    DIMMs are in the white slots (DIMM_0 and DIMM_1)

    I have 3 different power supplies, two boards, two CPU's and 8 DIMMs.

    I've tried a ton of memory combos.

    Any dual channel combos cause it to power cycle. Single channel causes it to stay powered on, but no POST and the DIMM_LED lit.

    There is a CLR_CMOS button, and a CLR_CMOS jumper marked, but no actual jumper on it. Just the markings on the board.

    That was one of the first things I looked for. I remember way back many manufactures would ship boards with the CLR jumper installed and you had to remove it before it powering on.

    So, to be clear...

    You want me to install the memory with the system POWERED ON. Exact opposite of everything we ever learned about hardware?

    I have a single drive attached on the "built" setup, with a single GTX 275.
    I have no HDD on the "benched" setup, with a cheap ATI 38xx.
