    So i had problems with system instability and i thought it was the motherboard, so i RMA'd it to newegg and just got my replacement in. I'm 99% sure i put everything back in correctly and got all the wires in the right place, but when i try to boot, i get fans spinning up but absolutely nothing on my monitor.

    Do you think the mobo is just toast? Is there anything else I should try first?

    pull all the wires. pull all cards. redo them all and make sure they are all in the right places. dont forget the 12v atx for the cpu.try changing ram slots as well.

    yeah i remembered the 12v atx. I guess i'll try and redo it all, to make sure... i won't have time to do that today though.
