the best way to solve this is the process of elimination. but before u try that, just a couple of things,

try using a popular brand stick of ram if u got any
reset cmos (refer to manual)
check the sticker on the psu, and tell us how many amps (XXA) it has in the 12v rail(s)

but i have a suspicion ur mobo could be shorting out, maybe a loose screw or standoff etc.

sounds like you're not getting enough power (probably to your GPUs)... try with only one GPU, one DIMM, CPU and HSF (no HDDs, opticals or anything else) and see if you can get into the BIOS

NZXT Lexa BlackLine w/ Red LEDs | Corsair TX-750 | Gigabyte EP45-DS3P | Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 @ 3.6GHz
2x 2GB Kingston HyperX PC2-6400 @ 960MHz (5-4-4-13) | 3x Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500GB HDD in RAID5
2x HIS Radeon HD 4850 @ 761/1129 in CrossFireX w/ Thermaltake DuOrbs | Creative X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Pro
