    or easy way out.

    Powersupply to
    MB + CPU only (Don't forget your CPU fan)- 1st if hear no sound... then say byebye to MB or CPU already.

    CPU is seated correctly. checked a few times. PSU fan, GFX fan, Extra cooling fan all running except for processor fan. i'm worried about the shorting out issue. wad would normally cause short circuiting?

    plan to haul my rig down to my friend's place to do a component by component test tmw. He has a similar core2quad desktop. i sincerely hope its the mobo that's fried and not the processor..

    onboard LED for motherboard is lit when i switch on the PSU.

    Make sure you test your component against your friend MOBO first, and also using his power supply!
    If your mobo is bad, you can fry your friend's component.

    You just have to test the CPU in this case. Wish you Luck.

    Test if the PSU will power up. Do becareful when shorting, make sure there is a load and the short pin err... best to use some non-conducting material to hold it.

    Check to see where the problem lies with, the mobo or PSU.
    Cheers

    What you can do is to test his PSU in your current setup to see if anything comes to life. This will help you to determine if the problem is caused by the PSU or it is actually the motherboard.

    just got back from my buddy's place. Processor's working fine. when load into his dell, can boot up till desktop. Ram and graphics card also can boot up till desktop. So i guess the mobo's the one that's broken. when connect new PSU still cannot hear any beep sound and the bios won't load at all. I'm going to call the shop that i bought the mobo from to check about RMAing the board. Processor's fan still not working. i think maybe the fan circuit got fried along with the board.

    Maybe they want to test them out themselves before doing the RMA. Just bring them lor.

    If you already remove then return to them removed and tell them you have tested processor is OK just mobo is bad. Tell them you test processor with your friend's mobo which is good.
    Dont give yourself and them extra work, when you put and they later remove. If they want to test for themselves then they will put it in.
    I hope it is covered man. Generally ASUS mobo is rock solid and they QC is good, so the shop will definitely want to check if the fault is yours, coming from shop owner's perspective.

    is it within a week? then can 1 to 1 exchange at shop bah...

    anyway, if you wanna make it fast, check who is the distro for your board (there is 2 iirc, your box and warranty card will indicate) then just bring it down to the distro and have a 1 to 1 exchange. since SLS might not have stock for the boards, having it done at the distro eliminate the problem of going back twice unless they tell you no stock as well.

    today is the 8th day. Initially they din want to change, but after that the shop did a 1 to 1 exchange for me. Its the 4 pin for the processor fan that is damaged. After changing a new board, everything's fine now. Now using the new computer. Thanks to everyone for all their advice and pointers.
