ASRock X79 Extreme 11 doesn't boot :( !!!

I have been able to boot the pc the first 4 or 5 times in order to setup the bios. It had a problem with the RAM that didn't run at 2400mhz, so I tried to setup again and again.
At one given point the MB booted over and over, never stopping and never giving the chance to enter it and reset to its defaults.
Because it was booting over and over, I pressed the power button until shut it down. It's dead until now!
I already tested booting with a new PSU connected to the board, but it remains dead. The MB doesn't respond to the power button of the chassis, neither the power button on the own MB. I have managed to evade the PSU problem! No problem with it.
I'm trying to clear the CMOS, but as it seams I don't have power on the MB so it's impossible for me to reset it... I don't know what to do. All the equipment is brand new and I need your help because I think it has something to do with that looping boot and then turning the PC off. From then on, the MB stopped turning on.
:(  :cry:

Sounds like the motherboard got fried when you powered it off. The only thing left is to get a hold of the manufacturer and send it back for a RMA.

I cannot believe that!!
'Top of the pop' motherboard frying at a power off?
Failing with factory clocked RAM speed?
I'm stumped...

Well, it seams like it's something with the MB.
I have connected now the new PSU and its cables only on the 2 x CPU energy sockets in the MB and to the 24-pin socket...and nothing happens. No life for the new ASRock X79 Extreme11... :( 
Not even the power and restart buttons embedded on the MB are working.
