Ugh, I swapped out the PSU with a Corsair HX1000 I bought and that did not fix anything so now I have a spare 1000W PSU. At this point, since I'm not even POSTing, I think it's gotta be either the CPU or motherboard. I literally don't know a single person who uses an AMD system here so I have no spare parts to test with. I'm going to call up ASUS and AMD tomorrow and see if I can get replacement parts. If anybody has another other suggestions, I'm more than willing to try them.
Also, I'll be sending my old PSU for a replacement so if anyone wants a new (I think) Xclio Greatpower 1000W PSU, PM me for a price or an offer. It's 80 PLUS certified and looks to be a rebranded Channel Wells Technology PUC 1000W (see the CWT PUC 1000W
compared to the Xclio Greatpower 1000W
). For comparison, the Corsair HX1000 seems to be a modified CWT PUC 1000W based on this review
. I'll be making a thread for it in the bargain basement once I get the replacement.
Edit: I know it's not the video card because I put it in my friend's computer and it POSTed and booted fine. It's also not the PCIe slot because I've tried a different slot and got the same result.
