    I tried shorting the bios pins with a jumper already. I haven't tried taking out the battery though. I guess that's next. I will check for bent pins next.

    makesure the cpu clamp doesnt close when the cpu is out as it might have thermal paste on the edges and it will foul some cpu pins,if none of that works then could you try with another psu???

    I have another power supply in an older computer somewhere. I will try to locate it. I checked the cpu pins on the motherboard and they look fine.

    To test whether it is a cpu problem, would a functional motherboard behave differently with no cpu compared to a connected defective cpu? Should I try turning it on without a cpu in it to see if it does anything differently?

    So far this is the most unsuccessful pc build I have ever done. Maybe I should have gone lga-1366 instead.

    I'm just going to bring the whole computer in to the store where I bought the parts to have it checked out. I expect I will probably end up replacing the cpu and motherboard with an X58 mobo and i7 920. Thanks for all the suggestions.

    its either the psu or ram or mb,its rare to have a faulty cpu,try with another psu as some arnt compatible,i know its a pain but its best to check everything first as it might simply be faulty psu or ram

    I have an Antec P183 and CP850W power supply bought together with the rest of the components. It is clearly supplying power. Defective power supplies that I have used in the past just created system instability, they never prevented the computer from POSTing. It's all going back to be tested anyway so we'll find out.

    My first instinct was that it was a RAM problem, but the motherboard behaves the same way regardless of whether there is RAM inserted or not. That suggests to me it's not the RAM. A motherboard problem seems most likely to me.

    if you have another psu then try it just to eliminate it,as for ram it might be incompatable with the factory bios idk with bios update it might work perfectly but you cant update the bios until you can get the mb to post
