What is the make and model of your monitor?
I don't think the monitor has something to do with his problem. Best way, read carefully shortstuff_mt's checklist.
Asus Formula V is a realy nice mobo, got one with a temporary 1100T (overclocked, till the Bulldozer will eventually be launched
), and some Corsair Dominator GTs. Never had any problems. But you realy need to be carefull with the instalation.
By the way, nice job, shortstuff_mt
