Wish you'd made this statement, or similar, up front.  You're a hardware
freak like me.  Well, maybe not quite like me.  :)  I _never_ buy an ATX
PSU without a manual switch either.  This one thing demonstrates to me
that you know hardware.  Most people never give this a though.  Sorry if
it seemed I was "talking down" to you with some of my suggestions.  It's
a public list, so I always assume lowest common denominator, starting
with the basics.

Bench test it outside the chassis with another PSU.  If it still won't
POST I'd say the board may have taken a dive.  This is weird.  I've
never seen/heard of a bad DIMM frying a mobo before...
