Thanks for the link. Sadly I went through that thing for a good 3 hours last night, pulling my hair out to no avail.
I did notice though, that my cpu fan slot doesnt seem to work. I can plug the cpu fan into the "system fan" slot and it runs, but it doesnt run while plugged into the cpu fan slot. Sings are pointing to bad mobo I think.
I mean i've got this thing in it's rarest state, CPU/HSF and 20pin/8pin connectors plugged in, thats it. On a piece of cardboard.
Wonder if there is a safety check in place for this mobo/cpu fan perhaps? I didn't see anything about that in the manual though.
I also tried a different PSU, same results. Consistently after 5 seconds, it reboots in a loop.
