With everything connected the fans and the standby LED power up, harddrive spins up. I have tried different video cards, tried different memory DIMMS, reset the bios different times, tried different power supplies. Nothing seems to work.

Is this a new build, or has the system been working for some time?

Have you tried doing a breadboard?

Cleared CMOS?

Do you hear any beeps?

Did you do a breadboard?

Does the CPU fan spin?

Were you overclocking?

Have you tested the RAM on a different mobo?

Is the thermal paste dried?

Do you see any signs of physical damage to the mobo?

Are you familiar with the troubleshooting guide I mentioned earlier?

Ok,this asnwers my question of you at least reading the troubleshooting guide.

Click the link in my signature. Work through every applicable step. At the end of the guide, you'll find jsc's breadboarding guide. The gist of it is building the system outside of the case.

I followed your troubleshooting guide, and the power button on the case doesn't power the MB off. I breadboarded it and the power switch on the MB doesn't turn the power off either.

So, the power button can turn on the computer, but won't turn it off? What about your display problem? As odd as that sounds, it's likely you have a short either in the power button, or the front panel.

With your system still breadboarded, disconnect all front panel connections from the motherboard. Using a flathead screwdriver (or similar metal object), jump the PWR_SW pins on the mobo.

even with the front panel connects removed, the power switch on the MB turns it on but wont turn it off

Have you tested the RAM with MemTest86+?

Is the thermal paste dried?

I don't hear any beeps, the CPU fan Spins, I have never OC'ed, I tried the ram on my other 790GX-M2RS (It worked), ran Memtest86, and reapplied fresh AS5

The absence of beeps is concerning. Do you have a mobo speaker installed? In my experience, no dispaly is (from most common to least common) usually caused by:

1. Short circuit - Breadboarding can sometimes help; and sometimes not. When you did your breadboard, did you put everything together and test for display, or did you install only the basics (one DIMM, CPU, HSF, PSU, GPU/VGA if equipped)

2. RAM - Failing or dead RAM cause instability and display problems. You didn't hear any beeps; not even the single beep indicative of a successful POST, that could be a problem.

3. PSU - A failing PSU or a PSU that doesn't supply enough power can also be a culprit. However likely it may seem that at least one PSU would work, the only genuine test that has conclusive results would be to test a PSU while connected to the mobo and the system is turned on. In this manner, you could do a voltage test (with a voltmeter) to see if enough power is getting to the mobo.

4. CPU - You say that you've applied a fresh spread of Artic Silver 5. When you pulled off the heatsink, was the CPU attached to the heatsink? Did you check to ensure that when reinstalling, no AS5 got onto a pin? Checked for bent pins (even the slightest bend could cause problems)?

5. Mobo - The least likely is the mobo itself. Damage to mobos is more common than you might think. I've worked on computers that have had DIMM slots go bad, even when using the computer for just the simplest tasks, such as web browsing.

At this point, the likelihood of a bad mobo is apparent. For good measure, I would consider using a digital voltmeter and test any of your PSUs on the mobo.

i put everything together when i breadboarded it, even connected the monitor, and there was no display. The ram passed the Memtest96+.

Try the breadboarding again, this time install only the following:

1. One RAM stick
2. CPU and heatsink
3. Connect PSU
4. Use onboard graphics (if you have it) or Install GPU
