I recall that you said that you pulled all the Ram - did you get any error beeps when you did this.
One final check that you can do is power up the MB and when it shuts off is to quickly remove the power cord, remove the HS and cooling fan and feel the top of the CPU to see if it is warm, if it is it suggests that the CPU is getting power from the +12V ATX power supply but if it is cold it suggests that it is not getting the power which is often caused by a bad ATX socket.

I will power it up, let it spin a few times and see if the CPU is hot tomorrow evening and get back to you.
Thanks for the suggestions so far.

For testing purposes only can you try connecting the CPU cooling fan to the rear chassis fan header on the MB (see attachment) - this in case the CPU cooling fan header is bad.
Have you tried pulling the CMOS battery for a while in case there is a bad MB setting.

I have tried the CMOS battery thing yes sir.
And in other news, I got a bit upset and ordered a board for R530 (~US$80)
So I will let you know if it's the board or the CPU in due course......

I hope that you have better look with the new MB and hopefully when you next reply it will be on your upgraded computer
