I recently purchased a Maximus V Gene from the egg. I'm pairing it with a 3750k and Samsung's 30nm ram. Finally put it together last night and it wasn't posting. It turned on, but it started up as though it had encountered a BIOS error and required me to enter the BIOS recovery setup. So after pressing F1 like it told me to, I just get a blank screen.
I called up Asus tech support and they told me that it might be a bad board. They recommended that I reset the CMOS the battery to see if that would fix it. It did not. I then tried reseating the ram. That didn't work. I tried booting it with only one stick. That didn't work either.
Any other tips before filing an RMA?
