See if you can't test the CPU in anyone elses computer, but Id have to say bad motherboard, its either mobo or CPU now and since Mobo is older here, Lets elminate the CPU first.

I agree with Ste. CPU and Mobo left. I suggest trying a new mobo since you said the processor is a mere 6 months old.

Yeah, those were pretty much my thoughts.

I was going to swap the processor out of my other (working) computer into this one to see if that solved the problem. Turns out that I cant figure out how to remove a processor from the mainboard, all I could do was undo the clips. So I gave up, clipped it all back up, and tried to boot it up again... Now it doesnt boot at all.

Im so good at this
