last time I rebuilt my computer (I dont like using compressed air, so every 6 months I manually take every component out of my case, and blow it out the old fashioned way, reapply thermal paste, etc) and put it back together, I had a similar issue, only it wouldn't boot at all-and since I don't have a system speaker, no beeps. I initially started to panic, but decided to double check everything, and I hadn't put one of the memory modules all the way in-one end was hanging out by a hair, so that at casual glance from the outside, it appeared in normally, but wasnt. thankfully, nothing fried, and all I had to do was push it in all the way and it worked fine, so like you said its always a great idea to double check everything, and then go through and test systematically. Ive gotten to the point where I have a computer that will turn on but not boot the first thing I check is the memory, then graphics, etc, a lot of it really is just keeping a good head about you. and Im glad EVGA has good tech support! I will have to remember that.
