So I just built a computer at the communities recommendation and I have had the same issue twice with it and want to change something. Below is a list of the products that I have.

The problem that I have is that when all of these items original came in I put it all together only to have a issue with the mobo not performing a POST. Upon calling ASUS they had me read off to them the LED's that were illuminated and only one was, which was a red one labeled CPU. They told me that either the socket on the mobo was bad or the processor was bad and to RMA the items back to newegg for replacement. I just got my new items back in today (New mobo and processor) only to have the exact same issue. After reading around I have found that some other people have had a lot of issues with this mobo as well and I was thinking of just getting it refunded and getting a different mobo that would support all the other goodies that I have. Any suggestions???

Thanks in advanced,

Warren D.

That's what I would do.

So I went and grabbed another ASUS mobo, put it in and was still having problems, called ASUS and I had forgotten to put in the 8pin power connector for the CPU... FML.
