I am having an issue with a Gigabyte Z68AP-D3 motherboard. When I attempt to start it on a test bed by shorting the two PWR pins, the board begins to power up and fans spin up for less than a second, then the board shuts off. A second or two later without touching any pins the board attempts to start again and repeats.
Specs are as follows
Cooler Master Elite 500W PSU (known good PSU, runs in my AMD rig)
Intel Core i5 2320 (Not known if good)
4GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 (known good)
The board begins cycling even with no processor or memory installed, when I would expect to hear beep codes indicating this, instead the same issue occurs.
I noticed some of the pins on the motherboard socket were bent so I used the edge of a debit card to straighten them, and they are in line perfectly.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
