I have tried several power supplies. They are all newer power supplies that have the correct power specs. And yeah, one of the two mother boards (Intel) has a couple odd power connections.
I have also tried them in and out of a case.
I have pretty much resigned myself to the fact that I either have a set of two bad mother boards, a set of three bad cpu's or both. I just wish I could confirm one before I go and buy some more hardware.
