|Okay, so your response 6 link to your previous topic provides a lot more info about your problem with your mboard.|
The only thing you didn't mention trying is a different power supply.
Do you have another computer you can borrow a power supply from, or can you borrow one from a friend's computer, that has enough wattage capacity ?
It could be the mboard has failing electrolytic capacitors.
Some mboards develop this problem - electrolytic capacitors were installed on them that were not properly made, and they fail eventually - the mboard manufacturer didn't know they were improperly made at the time the mboard was made.
Open up your case and examine the mboard to see if you have bad capacitors, and/or other findable signs of mboard damage .
What to look for, mboard symptoms, example pictures:

- what the problem is caused by
- he says there are STILL bad capacitors on more recent mboards.
Pictures of blown capacitors, other components, power supplies, fried Athlon cpus, etc.:
"I checked 3 sites that sell quality new components at reasonable prices and all three only show boards for socket 775 with G41 chipsets which do not support ddr3 1600, only up to 1333"
The DDR3 1600 spec itself is backwards compatible with the DDR3 1300 spec. However, that's not the only thing that determines whether it will be compatible with a mboard that supports max DDR3 1300 specs.
The DDR1600 ram may work fine at 1300 mhz, it may not.
Whether your cpu needs the ram to run at 1600mhz depends on which cpu you have.
