|No win 8 disk, but no doubt someone could do that..|
As to getting into the bios it wouldn't let me get that far, no boot at all. I have some knowledge as a tech its just nice to have other eyes and minds when you face issues. Thanks guys you are the best!
I checked the connections thoroughly, removed secondary HDDs and Blue ray connections and got the same result. I then changed power supply again same thing. With the MB offering no clue and it has on board error code generator with component failure led's, which offer no clue. I contacted Asus and obtained a RMA. The only other thing it could be (i think) would be the intel 3770k but it didn't get hot so makes me think the MB ???? We will see, once the new one arrives I will let you all know
