I was thinking the CPU fan might be shorting out the motherboard but that doesn't appear to be the case. Does your motherboard have onboard video?

I can't imagine that would be the problem. Do you have all your motherboard pins set correctly including 24-pin power, 8-pin voltage, and case headers?
