This seems to be a problem with AMD cpus and ASUS mobos. The CPU INIT failure indication shows on my mobo LCD poster and that's how I came up with the failure type. To confirm the cpu, AMD benched and checked my processor and declared it functional.
In my research, this has happened to several others. Most of them had AMD/ASUS with DDR2 memory combinations. The most common cure is to remove most of your memory and try to boot your system off a single RAM module. If it doesn't boot, swap the RAM modules and try again until it boots. if it doesn't, I can't help you from this point.
If it boots, restart and get into the BIOS and make sure you had the original settings. If you are running OCZ 1gb modules you may want to up the DDR2 voltage to 2.2v before you install the second module. Shut it down and add the next RAM module and then boot up again. Keep doing this until it fails in POST or you have all your memory modules reinstalled.
