    i have built almost the same setup as another member who posted abou
    a problem, although mine has never started whereas he at least got
    few weeks out of his

    i have the tiger s2877 board, 2 x 248 opterons, 2x 1gig ecc, a 530
    tagan psu

    It did briefly boot to a flash screen, didnt leave this screen,
    figured it wouldnt recognise the wireless k/b so turned off to plu
    in a ps2 one. since then it hasnt worked. there was an electrica
    'smell' during this initial setup too.

    i have tried allsorts since, ive filtered out the gfx & sound, iv
    tried both cpus individually in the correct socket. ive also tried th
    PSU with another board, it worked fine, although that was a socke
    939

    does it sound like a dead mobo ? or could it be the cpus ? and how ca
    i check !

    thanks in advance
