Are you sure it's the correct 4 pin connector going to the cpu? Some ATX supplies have 2. One 12v only connector for the cpu and the other is an extension of the 20 pin power connector. It's not hard to mix them up.

Edit: This could be the same problem Quick blink on power supply

Sounds like you may need to RMA the board.

Random movie quote to make you seem hip and "with it":
"Please take the chairs away. I don't like them. The big one is staring at me and that short one is being very droll."

Agreed. You know it isn't the PS, and it won't even get to the POST screen, which would indicate to me either a bad board or bad cmos battery.
