Take out all ram but one stick. If it post, go into the bios to adjust the ram's timings and voltage.

If that doesn't work, uninstall the HSF, and check the pin array on the MB to make sure no pins are bent.

But what about DVD-rom and case lights? :sweat:

Since I have no idea which kit you got, I'll use this as an example:

OCZ Reaper HPC Edition 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800

Only clue I have is 1gb modules.. :lol: 

The spec's on it are:

Timing 4-4-4-15 2T
Voltage 2.1V

If your MB is auto adjusting, more then likely it's trying to power them up with 1.8v, which would be quite low for 4 sticks.

Other then that, you might have other problems.

Either you hooked them up wrong.. or

1.) the PSU isn't working properly.
2.) the DVD isn't working.
3.) the led on the PC are burnt out.

One thing you could try, is to unplug the DVD cable to the MB. And then power it up to see if it opens and closes.

EchoStar 680-Watt 20+4 Pin SLI Ready ATX Power Supply is it even a good power supply???

If you have a radio shack near, perhaps you could get a PSU tester:

Thermaltake Power Supply Tester

There is a paper clip trick to test the PSU as well, to power it up without the MB, to test it on a volt meter for the 5v/12v rails:

Turn on PSU without motherboard - the 'paperclip trick'

And it usually better to trouble shoot the MB out of the PC case. Set the MB on the cardboard box it came in, to get a birds eye view of everything.

That is a ***** of ****. You have got to be joking right!! My bait thread detector is going off the scale!! :pt1cable:  :pt1cable: 

You powering some really expensive equipment off a $25.00 PSU and you need to ask us whats wrong!!

I refer you to a guide to PSU quality:

Note that Echostar doesn't even feature... Maybe Tier 6?? :lol: 

Lets hope the RAM/GPU/MB haven't been blown by up by your PSU experiment...

You only need:

for your rig...

You aren't SLI or a 8800 GTX / Ultra / GT280 / 9800GX2 after all!! :sol: 

OCZ make good RAM but not quite so good powersupplies. Corsair are the best at the budget end of the market just now.

Apart from the fact that tri SLI is a waste of money that PSU link you posted says: 2 x 6Pin PCIe in the specification... :whistle:  So that could potentially raise a few problems (if each 9800 GTX needs 2x 6 pin power connectors)!! :cry: 

BTW Do you have 9800 GTS or a 9800 GTX?? You seem to be a bit confused!! :crazy:

9800gtx and i'll go just gonna sli it then move on to the next graphics card. Tri-sli is a waste of money but sli is ok it doubles the performance.
