Something strange happened the other day... I got a bit of life out of the board. It didn't POST, but the power light in the front was green and steady without anything connected. Then I tried plugging in the cd drive and the light was yellow and flashing, so I disconnected it and tried it again with the hdd. Same thing. So I pulled everything off and tried to start it and now the light isn't coming on at all....
So that got me thinking that it may be a voltage issue; I need more maybe? I can't imagine that 330w isn't enough, but I guess the PSU could be bad despite its new-ish.
So CPU or PS... that is the question....
I RMA'd them again.... so maybe that'll tell me something... they said they'll replace them.
Since I'm getting two boards, I'll be able to figure which one is the issue.
