    PS: I was also thinking of getting this board, but with a T7600 processor.
    I dont really care about post times, as I just remote start it for cold boot in the morning and then it is in standby the rest of the day.

    In my opinion the T7600 is way overpriced for the advantage over a T7200 and the T7200 go for much less. Any c2d is overkill for the car unless you are like me and use high end programs in the car.

    Nope not a problem. Note I also said I used 2 power supplies. First power supply is my trusty hacked up ATX supply that is the el-cheapo kind at 600W advertised (probably closer to 300W). When it didnt work, I too thought power, and switched it out with my brand new backup PSU. I bought it for a really extreme PC I was building for a friend (P4 EE, x2 6800 SLI) when that was top of the line. The 6800 just came out then and the 24pin standard was new then too. Boy I feel old... Anyways, tried that, and nothing either. Both are known good to work, and power up any other board perfectly.



    Also I should clarify in the posts above when I say "nothing happened" what I mean is the LEDs (2 red ones for some reason) light up and the cpu fan spins. My HD spins up and everything. However, the screen is never awakened, no beep is heard, HD never starts to seek, just the initial spin up then dead, nothing. So it is a powered nothing. That is what led me to believe CPU problems because that is exactly what happened to me on that same 6800 SLI computer. The P4EE was brand new ($1200 for the 3.2Ghz I think) and all the motherboard BIOS's were not yet setup for the P4EE except the newest ones. And when you order, you usually get the oldest board they have so they can rotate stock, so the board wouldn't POST either until I put in a not-so-old-at-the-time P4 HT and booted it up, flashed the BIOS and put in the P4EE again. That is also one of the reasons why I bought a Core Duo instead of the Core 2 Duo the second time to rule out BIOS being old.

    Wow...tricky

    Well the chances of all those components being bad is very small. Maybe fate has it in for you

    That ram chip configuration that it needs could be the issue. You mentioned you tried a few but if it is finicky about chip arrangements, then who knows? Maybe it needs all the chips on one side of the RAM stick (I've seen this before).

    Make sure all USB devices are unplugged. Make sure the all drives are unplugged. Just connect keyboard and screen and power.

    Make sure the system is grounded nicely. You probably already have this covered but it can't hurt to check. Maybe even a special grounding rig for the PSU and MB.

    On newegg someone mentioned that this MB cannot run CAS 4 RAM properly. Needs CAS latency of 5.

    Others are saying theirs shipped with a dead BIOS battery...

    It does require double sided memory. All sticks I have tried except the first one are double sided.

    No keyboard ports. I have tried to boot it with VGA and power same deal.

    It is in the house now, and as I said, same power supplies power up my other spare mobos just fine.

    Yeah I read that too. So I ordered the Geil memory from Newegg which is a CAS5 and known to work supposedly...

    I havent checked this, but I guess it wouldnt hurt. Although if there is no charge on the battery, it should still boot fine, it just wouldnt save any info when the power goes out... Unless things have changed and I am not aware of it!

    Thanks for trying to help though. I did do the normal troubleshooting before my rant I promise!

    I dont plan on running graphic programs, but i do intend on running Sling Box and game system emulators, plus i simply like the extra power to be safe. In the past i went for a cheap board, and that got me no where. Now I have a CarPC sitting at home because it is way to slow for me. I think my moms old IBM with 700MHZ and 768 MB of ram feels faster then the M10000. I have already wasted so much money, wasting alittle more wont kill me, if in the end I have a nice stable system. Now that you have wrote this review though, I am very nervous about this board, since in the past you have always given good, sound advice on things.

    I would be curious to see what other people that have this board think of it in operation. Overall Newegg.com people say it is a good deal except for a few that have my exact problem. So I guess it is a "if it works, it works excellent. If it doesn't work, it will never work..."

    I am in love with this board although I have not bought it...... i am buying it from logic supply though, which will test the MoBo before sending it out. The board is 80 dollars more, and they charge an additional 14.95 for the test, but at least i know I will not get a bad MoBo unless UPS damages it.

    Please like Toaster asks, if you have this board please comment on it, what your impression and experience is. Post alot of details.

    ^^^Sounds worth the extra cost in this case if you really want THIS motherboard...

    I had the same thing happen on my Sh@@# VIA C7 board. I turned it on out of the case and it beeped and started loading the operating system. i hope you tried this cause a very stupid error. I noticed that my SATA cable was jiggling and when put back in the case it would disconnect enough to make the system not boot. Just fans spinning and lights on, but no beep and boot. I replaced with a lockable cable. Have you checked this?

    Yup, actually never put it in a case, resting on various things (non of them conductive btw )

    Also using IDE not SATA, and the cable was snug, and HD known to be good as it boots right away in different mobo.
