Is the 20+4 connector snug to the mobo and how about the 4/8 ATX jack power by the CPU socket

Yes I made sure that it was. Everything is aligned correctly also. Do you think it could be a faulty CPU?

Does it power anything up? GPU, fans,drives, etc...CPU is a definite possibility, might check it, espcially for bent/broken pins

Yes, it powers up everything that I can tell. No pins are broken or bent either. I am on Skype with two friends that are video chatting with me and can't see anything wrong either (they both have built numerous PC's and have a good deal of knowledge about them).

I believe that the motherboard shorted out. Any recommendations on where to go from here (i.e. replacement, repair, return, ect.)

Have you put it on a bench? If so try it there, if it was shortening due to a loose screw or something it may still be fine (workable)

Thanks for all your help. If this doesn't work I will return it and get a new one

Sorry couldn't do more, I know how much I hate RMA (and what's worse how much the client's hate them and the delays)
