Yes, we have exhausted most of the possibilities. Lastly we need to swap out the PSU, for a different one, if that don't work ??? A short on the MB ?

It looks like that board uses a 24 + 4 power supply (not a 20 + 4). It has a 24-pin power connector and separate 4-pin connector by CPU. I sure hope you connected the 4-pin CPU power because if you didn't, the board and/or CPU might be toast.

Here is what carwiz is talking about.


#1 in my snip shows the 20 +4 MB power connector

#2 shows dual 4 pin MB connectors (& /or GPU)

#3 is Sata power connectors

#4 is IDE power connectors

Yes, that socket noted on the lower left (in the above photo) is the one I'm concerned about. It's actually an 8-pin socket but half of it is capped with a plug leaving 4-pins.

Although my motherboard is an Intel, the manual was very specific about having this socket wired before powering on the supply or damage could occur. It's the 12v Processor Core Supply. I'm sure the ASUS board is similar.

Just my two cents but if you have an 8 pin plug by the CPU you should maybe use two 4 pin plugs. My power supply has two especially for this. See picture from my old Asus M3 A32 MVP Deluxe MB.
PS sorry about the quality.

The picture I posted is his motherboard. We had asked earlier about that socket.

The OP shouldn't use anything until he refers to his motherboard documentation. That 8-pin connector has a cap over four of the pins for a reason. I wouldn't suggest he simply connect two 4-pin power leads to it without knowing the correct supply needs of the motherboard. The only way he will know that is to read the documentation. Something lacking far too often, I might add.
