Quote: Maybe its not the motherboard any other ideas how do I test the CPU? A gentle wiggle is perfectly fine when troubleshooting. Absolutely. E6750 - from 2.66GHz to 3.0 - I know it can go more but i haven't gotten around to finding the max yet.

From what I understand about "SLI" ram it is really nothing more than EPP ram that has qualified for the SLI brand in such that it will work and be recognized So i gave things a rest and tried to run Valley in SLI later that night.

I've ruled out the memory as a cause... Another way is to go out and pickup a PSU tester for about $15-$20. Usually they are really easy to take out. Or go with safe settings.

I rebooted the machine via the reset button and POST was okay, but windows would not load. my molex connectors are powering four case fans, a front panel LED and a pci slot gpu fan.
