So I put it together outside the case i had the cpu, cpu heatsink and ram. plugged in the power and it worked. put it in the case try turning it on and it doesn't work. Case fans spin but thats it. Did I short my board? if so is that covered?

Check that you have all the standoffs in the right spots, and no standoffs that don't match up to a hole in the board.

Uhm, did you actually connect the cases power button to the actual motherboard..?

I tried it with the case power disconnected using only the on board power button and still only the fans turned on.

Just checked them and they are all in the right spots. I heard that if you touch them to the back of the board it could short circuit, is that possibly what happened?

24 pin in correctly? 8 pin EPS in correctly?

My case fans start up before the CPU and motherboard does (Maybe around 5 seconds).

Could be a chance that the 24 pin sort of dislodged -- careful you don't push it in too much. I have the same board and its not supported well in the top right corner

I have tried that so many times. My power supply has a 20+4 connector and I feel like the 4 aren't going in all the way but I cant push any more on them. Also if the case fans are connected to the motherboard and the motherboard was screwed would they still work?

Ah, I think I know your issue. So many times I've seen this happen. Make sure your extra 4 pins are actually in the RIGHT way. Happened SO many times to others I've known. Generally there are arrows on it, make sure both tips of the arrows meet at the same point. Might fix your issue, although I'm not really certain.

If your fans continue to work, then it might not be a motherboard issue. Try taking out your GPU and using onboard video.

Haha, thats why I asked if you put in the 8 pin EPS -.-

Thanks for your help I install windows and it works perfectly (I'm on it now LOL). Now how would I go about stress testing it?

Run Prime95 for a little bit for your CPU, and run Kombustor on your GPU for 45 mins + just to check if its stable. Expect higher temps on both Prime95 and Kombustor -- it exceeds normal use in gaming and what not, meaning it gets hotter (Like I get 60 degrees on my GPU in games, but I get like 80 in kombustor.) Don't let your CPU exceed 80 degrees though.
