A few questions:


Have you built it in the case, or out?


I would suggest reviewing these two build guides if you haven't already:Ed Jacobson’s Build Guide and Angry Games Build Guide with Pictures. Ensure all 3 power connectors are plugged into the board


Did you follow the guides above? If not, how did you differ.


To summarize, build outside of the case, with minimum hardware (CPU, vid card, 1 stick of ram in farthest orange slot from CPU). Clear CMOS for 5-10 min. hitting the on-board power button a few times to drain caps, boot, enter BIOS, load optimized defaults, save and exit.


Also, can you post specs on that PSU?

That PSU wouldn't happen to be a A-Power 500w, would it?


If so, do yourself, and your hardware, a very big favor: replace it immediately. I can tell you from personal experience those PSUs are complete and utter cow dung. Every single one of the 10 I ordered developed a problem. All were replaced.

That would indicate a problem with your CPU, sure it is ok? If it's not too much trouble re-seat your CPU and only use one memory stick in the yellow slot furthest away from the CPU.


EDIT* Just noticed in another thread that NO Kingston memory is on the DFI memory advide list you could also test with another set of sticks, but since you say your cards get stuck on 4 and not 3 leds it indicates a CPU problem and not a memory related problem.
