    Yea standoffs are all in right positions, been burnt by this before so I always make sure these are done right 1st time to avoid any complications.

    I have thrown my noctua in there cause I dont have an HSF for this build yet, I keep going back to the fact there are no beeps, even without RAM, which is leading me to believe it's the board and nothing else. As mentioned will swap out the PSU tomorrow, then the only thing I haven't swapped out will be the CPU.

    Do you still need the CPU cooler? I feel like an asshole for keep on saying that id send the cooler then i dont because my new parts havent been shipped yet.

    If my parts arent shipped by the 26th (giving Ebuyer 1 extra day to get all the goods shipped out - my parts should be available on the 25th), I will order a brand new cooler from Amazon or something and donate it -- and thats a promise

    My vote is for the board as well, but it's good that you're swapping the PSU just in case (a failing one can cause all sorts of problems lol).

    I'd offer to send you a board that is not currently in use, but shipping would be impractical.

    Hey mate how're you doing with the build at present, any conclusion on the motherboard so far?

    Sorry for having a lack of input thus far people, got a lot on at the moment though I'm still keeping myself as occupied as I can for this topic and others =)

    Hope everyone is doing grand and taking good care of themselves!

    Sorry for the delated reply ppz, had a mental weekend and been busy with work the last couple days

    It is the mobo, am going to have to buy one if no one has a spare one going, Sasqui has offered to make a donation as the board he was originally going to donate has gone to a build for his lad, I will put in what I can though have already bought the case and money is tight so will see what I can do, anyone else interested in making any kind of donation please PM cause as it is there is nothing I can do without a board. :mad:

    So the board is definitely bad? Bummer. :shadedshu

    Perhaps there's more troubleshooting that can be done? If so, you may want to put more info here and we'll help you out. I'm thinking about double checking the PSU in particular.

    If that board is still toast, then I'm willing to make a donation, no problem. :toast:

    Looks like sending my Vendetta 2 isnt enough and i must also send in my Asus P5Q Pro....

    Oh well... give the old mobo a few more tests --- stick it in an oven and bake it then see if it works again properly after wards. If everything goes to shit then i will step up and donate my old P5Q Pro as no one on the forum seems to want to buy it anyway even with a fresh copy of crysis2.

    Yea, tested everything managed to get it into work this week and test out all the components in another 775 rig.

    Sorry mate, yes I have to collect it from the PO though it did arrive, as I said just been really busy as of late, again big thank you!!!

    Well if people are willing to donate a couple of quid here and there and we get enough donations then I will buy the board from you, how does that sound?


    Anyone who can spare a fiver or so shoot me a PM, I will stick a fiver into the virtual pot now to start us off :p

    No its all right, If the board is going to a good cause, then thats all that matters. I'll let it go for the price of postage.

    It wouldnt feel right profiting from something thats going to be donated to someone in need, in the name of someones memory.

    I probably chatted to mark on 2 occasions while he was still lurking around the project log forum. but I know he meant a lot to everyone at TPU, and im not gonna be and asshole and charge you for something that i didnt cant manage to sell. It wouldnt sit right with me. and mark would probably say the same thing as well.

    Damn right! :toast:

    If I was hard up and given a gift like this, I may give it away when I no longer needed it, but not accept it and then just sell it. It's taking the piss and it's outrageous. :nutkick:

    Cooler and Mobo have been shipped via first class recorded. tracking number AH885933665GB. Gumpty chipped in £5 towards shipping. (or at least i think he did. -- my online account says i was credited with £5 but it wont tell me who the £5 came from so I just assumed it was Gumpty as i told him to send £5 my way and id sort the rest)

    If anyone of you want to pick up the remaining £4.72 be my guest :laugh:

    NO -- im serious lol. one of you will pick up my tab *jedi wave* that £4.72 will go towards some KFC or kebab
