yep, that sounds like youre shorting the mobo out. you need to have risers installed in the case and then put the mobo in. the risers prevent the back of the mobo from directly touching the case, which would cause it to short out.

wow , thats strange. i am assuming since you had the video cards installed, everything lined up. tightened one MB screw at a time to see if you can figure out which one is causing a problem. if you can pinpoint the problem then call Gigabyte for a RMA. return it while you can. check the back of the baord and see if their is a little piece of solder that coul be touching the case.
good luck
