Boy, you never really know.

Problem was the USB 2.0 header on the motherboard. As soon as you unplug it, it boots up. So, three PSUs, two motherboards, and a case later, we found the culprit. Time to install OS X, and W7 and see what the next problem will be.

It may not be the mobo header but a bad usb2.0 cable as a build of mine turned out to be years ago, it lead to a multi card reader with an issue (bent pin) most likely.

In the process of now installing my OS's and Programs.

The UEFI BIOS....
WOW! Never used BIOS like that.

I already don't miss my Core 2 Duo!

Once I got used to the UEFI interface, I love it.

One nice thing is if you put a USB pendrive in before going into BIOS, you can press F12 and make a screenshot of whatever you are seeing on to the USB stick.
