Motherboard not POSTing

Hey guys,
My pc config is
Intel core i7 2600
Intel extreme DZ68BC motherboard
Ram-8 gb
Hdd 1tb
Corsair 600w power supply
My problem is that my pc was freezing when i was playing games like csgo and crysis so my friend told me to change the bios
So than i downloaded the bios exe file of Intel that is used to upgrade BIOS
But when I was flashing the bios my pc froze again so I had to manually restart also I restarted it after 30 min and bios update usually take 3 min
So it froze but after I restarted it my pc was not booting even into bios
I tried to force boot to bios using my bios button but still no luck. After that I opened my case and then started my pc there I noticed that the post code are not changing and the post code LEDs are also not litting.
Every case fan is running fine but I see no screen no posting nothing.
I removed my ram in order to listen to the beep but there was no beep at all.
Please guys if you can help please help me. Tried with and without you but not posting not even turning to bios please guys help

    If there were nothing wrong with any of your components, the the results of working the list should be a working computer. Based on the results you reported from working the list, and the problem you had while trying to update the BIOS, I am afraid that your motherboard is dead. If it is still under warranty, Try to get the manufacturer to RMA it. Updating the BIOS should NOT void any warranty as it is a normal procedure, Hope this helps!

    fans could work inn spite of the motherboard not being able to POST. Fans are a relatively low level function, while POSTing really requires some higher functionality, I.E. BIOS. I think that when you tried to update your BIOS and got the freeze, then from that point on, you were trying to operate with a corrupted BIOS. Unfortunately, there is not an easy way to recover from that, short of installing a new BIOS chip. How the chip is mounted to your motherboard dictates the difficulty level of replacing it. You may be able to get one from the manufacturer.
    Hope this helps!
