Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5 dead already?

I have had my rig since August. Everything has been fine, no OC and a nice Thermaltake 750 PSU. I went to turn on my PC and I got nothing. Naturally I switched cords, reseated cables and all that when I assumed my PSU died so I bought a new Thermaltake 850 PSU. I got it all hooked up and still no boot. There are no lights on the mobo at all. You guys think its a dead board?

  1. In addition I also tried the big red PW_SW inside the case just in case it was the case.
  2. Just wonder this is the first time you boot up with this mb since August?
    Or it is fine till now?

    Nope, its been running perfect since August. No signs of trouble at all.
  4. Check your CPU to see any spot showing damage.
    Also turn your motherboard to see circuit condition if there is spot showing damage.
  5. Tomorrow I will be taking off the Water cooler so I will check it but honestly, I get no leds on the MB when the power is flipped on the back of the PSU. Even if they CPU was toast I would think those would be lit and just maybe not boot. IDK, I could be wrong. I never OC'd it or anything like that. Its just been running stock.

    I have the same motherboard it happens to me when I replace the M/B from GA-Z77M-D3H to GA-Z77X-UP5 TH and it stopped working and now it start again (after 1 mouth with no crash) i change the bios to another one (BIOS switcher) and now my PC is working
