    p.s.

    500 w might me too weak to run the whole system.

    plug in wrong front board connector can easily shut down the system.

    @tkkid: I'm not sure what you mean by plug in the wrong front board...? Is this referring to the small pin plugs that connect to front of case, like power, reset, LED? I'm hoping the 500w is enough to run the system; I took the specs from a successful build posted over at Lifehacker - but that also makes sense to me. Any good way to test that? Also, thank you for all of the info in the previous post... really good stuff. I'll give it a try to simplify the system to absolute bare-bones (mobo out of box) and check carefully that the heatsink is securely attached at all pin points.

    @Acebmxer: thanks for the thoughts on the standoffs. I'll double check those when I pull the mobo out to power outside of the case. I hadn't thought of that.

    Also, is there any easy way to test if it is an issue from the video card? Ie maybe overheating quickly or something? It seems like the fan works on it... How about how to test the Ram? I've just gone down to one stick, then moved it from slot to slot with each attempted restart.

    Thanks again to everyone for your help with this. This forum has been great so far.

    btdross to test your memory use memtest86+ you can get from here: http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/late...y-tools-30530/

    Just burn an ISO to a cd, insert cd and reboot.

    When you moved your one stick of memory from slot to slot, did they all work?

    As a note to running memtest86+, your memory must be set up in the bios 1st.

    Thank you all for all of your help. It turned out that although I thought I had carefully checked, the heatsink was not 100% tightly attached. I pulled it off, removed the old thermal compound (factory installed) and put on Arctic Silver 5, made sure that I had all of the pins SECURELY attached, and sure enough - no more shutting off!

    When checking my temps in BIOS, I seem to run around 48 degrees C. The max for my processor is 71 according to Intel so I feel pretty good about this.

    Good news is that I didn't seem to fry processor or ram or anything. So far it is running like a dream. Problem solved!

    Is that idling at 48, or is that a temp under load?

    If that is your idle temp, you might want to try a stress test like Prime95 or OCTT and monitor your temps with CoreTemp, RealTemp, SpeedFan or something similar.

    Interesting... I hadn't thought about that. It was at idle. I'm running OSx 10.6 - are any/all of those stress test applications available for OS X? Any recommendations for a temp test for Mac?

    Thanks!

    Even better, it seems that Prime95 is known as MPrime when it is Mac'd.

    Free Software - GIMPS

    Choose the version appropriate to your machine, and then all you will need is a way to monitor your temps. Here is the first one I found:

    Fascinating, I cut and pasted URLs and the web site changed them to show the headers on the web pages represented by those URLs. Others may be used to that, but it is new to me.
