Motherboard/CPU/Heatsink Issue

Today while I was playing a game my computer made a weird noise like the fan was slowing down or dying, then it shut off.

Then when I tried to turn it back on it will not turn on. It does show the green light on the motherboard, but will not power up. It starts to and all the lights turn on but then it dies.

Went to the store and bought a new PSU:

New PSU w/ Graphics card - just twitches fans.
New PSU w/ only mobo connectors works, but the heatsink fan on cpu does not spin.
Old PSU doesn't work at all.

PSU: KingWin 650W [brand new]
Processor: Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5300 @ 2.60GHz
Memory: 3326MB RAM GSKILL DDR2
Video Card: BioStar - ATI Radeon HD 4850
Motherboard: ASUS P5QL/EPU

I don't know what to do at this point?

  1. If everything is connected correctly both ATX and CPU power it looks like your board has gone bad.
