If the motherboard hasn't displayed any Q-codes, and the Q LED's for CPU, GPU, RAM, and boot device are not lighting up when you turn the machine on, the problem is likely elsewhere, and I suspect the PSU.

That is, unless you tried to put the CPU into the socket when the pins were bent, in which case, yeah CPU would be suspect.

Yeah except I take out the CPU and I do get a mobo code....All my peripherals seem to run, and while I tried my new Corsair 1050 first I also tried my Antec 550 and I had the same result....It's possible a surge fried some stuff but it appears that the PSU is operating now.

When I bent the pins on board 1 I never put the CPU back in, they where totally mangled, on board two I bent 1 pin when a sliver of thermal paste got into the corner of the socket (dripped/strung off as I pulled the cooler away from the board to check silver spread after repeated struggles with cooler mounts)...I cleaned it with a Q-tip and bent the corner pin on an invisible cotton thread but was able to rake it back into place perfectly(so perfectly that I did not hesitate the RMA the board) so I doubt it was that.

It's all in the mail now, so New Egg will let me know which part is busted, if they all come back OK I will be surprised, if they all up broken then it has to be the PSU.

Well, it's in the Neweggs hands now. I'd be interested in hearing what the problem ends up being.

RE: Unholy PCs (Share Your Custom PC Builds)
^ That is almost like my PC...
Differences being:
Case
3x GTX 780s
double ram (32gb, still ripjaws)
2x ASUS 27" 1440p monitors
And a higher output PSU (corsair though)

Everything else seems to be the same or very near same model.

Well, I had 32gb on my last machine, which I used for video rendering and audio work... I had MASSIVE high quality samples for all my virtual instruments.

Now I dont use either for anything really...

Yeah that would be the reason to have 32GB, Video encoding.

$1800 in video cards, whew! Impressive man.
