I recently bought a used water cooled ASUS P5Q3 Deluxe board and it seems to have issues powering on. Once he board recives power for the first time and it turned on the fans Spin up but I don't get any display, after turning it off and back on it resets after a second of power, then the fans spin up with constant power but still nothing on screen, so I began the process of elimination. removing the accessories and clearing CMOS, then the gpu and then trying pairs and individual ram sticks in various sockets as well as other kinds of ram sticks, I've also tested the PSU on similar boards and it works just fine the only different response i get is when all the sticks are removed giving me a beep code, telling me there's no ram installed on the board. I've swapped cpu's and gpu's but with no difference. So I'm pretty stuck as to why I can't get a post out of this board.
Hope to hear something soon!
