motherboard just wont post, tried ram, tried video cards, tried everything it just wont send video. i cant hook up a post speaker to it because the jack is different for some reason its just giving me a lit HDD LED and all 4 ram lights are on, everything powers up but sends no video and gives some sign of a problem but i dont know what the deal is

update:
i disconnected all IDE and SATA connections and moved the RAM around and now i got it to sort of "bump" the video card where the fan will go 100% for a fraction of a second and the ram lights will flash then the same thing happens.

PSU is Cooler Master GX 750w

nother update:
i did some searching around and found out the 790 has some really tall solder joints and it likes to ground out on the case so i mounted the motherboard with a cheet of paper behind it and all is well

Try it with only 2 sticks of ram.
