If my computer/MB is on a large piece of cardboard and is in bare stock form (MB,1 stick of RAM, GFX card, and plugged into the PSU), what would it mean if only the CPU fan rotated slightly after shorting the Power Pins? No beeps, no lights, just a small fan rotation and stop. New PSU 750w, core i7 CPU, GTX 550 GFX, 1 x 4GB RAM stick (Corsair), BioStar TZ68A+ MB.

That you need a case.
Mobo needs to be grounded with the correct number / placement of stand-off's in order to work in the first place.

Let's hope you didn't fry your mobo :)

no im trying to diagnose a problem with my MB/build in general and was advised to tear it down bone-stock to figure out the problem and add parts accordingly till i hit a speed bump and that would be the incompatible problem. but as it is now, nothin is happening with it but just a lil fan spin, it resides on a large piece of cardboard currently so grounding isnt an issue atm
