    What puzzles me is why it does not power cycle when I remove the 12v ATX power cable to CPU. Obviously it doesn't boot like this, but does that help?
    have you tried one stick in the other two white slots? one at a time? and it wont cycle when you unplug cpu power plug as it isnt doing anything then,it needs to be plugged in so that the cpu can work

    RAM - I tried 1 stick in each white slot in turn. No joy. I also tried with no sticks and again didnt work.

    CPU power - I know it wont boot without the 12V ATX plugged. I just wondered if it gave any more clues as to whether it might be the Mb or the CPU.

    Is there anyway I can test the Mb without the CPU seated to rule out a faulty Mb?

    i dont think you can other than an rma for mb,would be good if you had another brand of ram to try

    Xigmatek has backplate. Do you think it might be causing problems with the CPU or shorting? I'll try it. I tried running the mb on the bench with no CPU cooler fan and no attached devices and still had the same symptoms.

    it will only cause problems if its overtightened,and it wont short if you use plenty of brass standoffs when in the case,personally i think its either the psu or the ram,its rare for it to be mb,and even rarer the cpu,tho i wouldnt rule these out completely,but id try with oher ram and psu first

    Will removing all the RAM have the same effect as trying different RAM?

    Btw, when I was seating the CPU the closing arm was quite hard to close. I googled it and others had the same issue. Checked the CPU and it cant see any obvious damage.

    OK recap of where we are:

    1. You have tried 2 different working PSUs with the build in the case and the problem did not go away correct? With both PSUs you get power to the board and connected fans. If this is the case it is unlikely to be the PSU.

    2. You said the problem did not dissappear with the core components assembled on a test bed outside of a case using the same PSU correct? If so this would seem to rule out a case short or an incorrect front panel connection as the source of the problem.

    3. You have tried your RAM in another system and it works? If so then this would seem to rule out a RAM problem.

    4. Restarts still occur even if you power on the PC with no graphics card in slot correct? So this would seem to rule out the graphics card.

    So surely what is left is the motherboard or the CPU as the likely suspects?

    The BIOS code 88 you mention is reserved according to:

    BloodRage: AWARD & Intel X58 POST Code/Debug LED Guide - XtremeSystems Forums

    So do you see any other codes come up or only 88 before it restarts?
