Could be a power issue on the board itself. Look at the caps to see if any are leaking or puffed (I doubt it since the newer boards don't use bad caps like before but a cap can still go bad.) I'm also wondering if you have a bad ground. Are all your stand-offs ok? No wires stuffed behind the board causing the fault?
Hi Mindwarp..
Yes the stand off are ok only using the one's the board needs.
I do have alot of extra cables bunched up behind the other side panel but even with that side off it still does it..
I think you are right about the board being the problem..
I will find out when I take everything out and start from scratch..
Does anyone know if ASUS rna policy will send a new board first so I'm not left without a computer??
