Gigabyte EP45-UD3L is the replacement.
yes I did some searching around and decided on this board got it in and replaced it yesterday. Solved my problem.
I meant everything powers up. I had everything plugging into the psu/motherboard and it would run plug in the cpu power and it would start and not even a second later power off. So i determined that the power connector to the cpu was probably short circuited. I also tried everything in the boot troubleshooting sticky before hand. Obviously the board was at fault since my system is running fine now.
Thanks for the help anyway guys
