    We are glad you are on the right track. To start check to be sure the board does not bottom on the chassie. Check your standups for the proper height.( Not to tall and not to short.) Also check the IO back plate. It has grounding prongs that can get out of position and short to a USB socket or on the board ect. Inspect them closely. I have to get out a bright light for this task. I wish the best for your install.

    Lsdmeasap:
    Thanks for the advice. You can't go wrong in positioning the 4-pin power plug even if there is no cover on the other 4 holes (as is the case on my MB). The plug only fits into one position. It won't insert into any of the other possible positions.

    The next day, I re-examined all of my cable connections and found that 24 pin ATX power connector was not fully engaged. I fixed that and the board booted up.

    I found that I had a post in the wrong position - directly underneath the 12V socket! So the board is back in and running like a champ. I'm glad I got a new PS anyway, I should have included that in the original build. Thanks to all for the help - what a great forum!
