Three dead GA-B85M-HD3 boards
Perhaps just very bad luck with mainboards, too, but it could take years to figure it out at this rate! Ditch everything, and swap mainboard brands too!
When I first had the problem that’s what I did, i put in a known good used motherboard and cpu and guess what, it wouldn’t power on either. I pulled the motherboard and put it on a wooden cutting board, hooked just the power supply a keyboard and a display.
Shorted the power on pins on the motherboard and it posted fine. Put it back in the case and it wouldn’t power on, my wife said it had to be a bad case. I said cases don’t go bad and that got me thinking, disconnect all front panel wires and short the power on pins. And it powered on and posted. Put the front panel wires back 1 set at a time and determined the reset wires when connected caused the issue. I put the original board back in and left the reset button disconnected and it powered up and posted fine.
Posted 03 March – Check your stand off locations, a grounding point may have been changed and the PS is getting shorted. Posted 04 March – I have had them fail and do really weird things to the system. If there is no reply after 3 days I remove the thread from my answer list. For further help PM me. Reset switch can cause havoc, but all assorted LED indicators could be disconnected.
Northeast Pa Local time: I still think the first psu was the culprit it just damaged more than just the motherboard and you are wise to pitch the case, but before relying heavily on a new case test the rest of the hardware as a ram stick or two might have been affected as well.
The Corsair Cx model psu is not gkgabyte great improvement either though it would not have continued the problem either. Posted 06 March – Besides the case I’m also retiring the oldest HDD, an old Wifi card, and an old card reader attached to motherboard in case one of them is guilty or at least an accomplice. Never head of RAM being able to kill a motherboard.

Three years ago I built this setup: C, GB The case and an internal card reader gigabbyte already 6 years old at the time. About two months ago the system died. All components worked well on another computer except the motherboard.
This works gigabyts for two givabyte. After that, again the motherboard was dead. Only two days this time You can imagine that I won’t be running to the shop for a new board anymore until I really figure out what is going on.
I already changed the PSU with the last motherboard replacement, so I can exclude that. However I can’t really think of another component which is capable to destroy motherboards but keeps working fine itself.
We did look into the power in the house. The voltage is within range Belgium; that is normal voltage herebut of course we don’t know exactly at the time the motherboard died. Also no other electronic devices show strange behaviour. Just to explain, with “dead” I mean in each of the three cases: There is no strange smell and nothing visually wrong. So, my questions for you: Number one could have just died from age even thouh three years isn’t old ; but numbers 2 and 3 certainly aren’t a coincidene.
Please note that the system has worked each time for at least two days, so I don’t think I did something wrong with the installation.

Thank you very much in advance! I’ll retire the case it’s over ten years old anyway.
