Its weird, it wont boot if any usb devices are plugged into the top two usb ports...And I've been trying to post pics of the finished setup and I uploaded them but HH "insert media" little applet isn't detecting them yet for some reason but I'll get them out eventually!
Sorry if I'm late to the party but everything seems to check out okay, the wiring may be a bit messy but I don't see any problems so far.
Also the header wires are the wires that came with the case that connect to your motherboard, they do things such as turn on the computer and show the activity of your HDD drive. I don't know how header wires can be the problem but hey, anything can happen. I do think that unplugging the power pins and plugging them back in again is an option you could try, you can also check to see if there's any visible damage to the power connector. If the header wires are the problem then you may have to replace the header connectors, which can be hard to do.
Or less likely, there is a flaw with the motherboard; if that's the case (after you connected it to a different case and powered it up.) then you may want to send it in for an RMA and hope that doesn't have the problem that you have.
Either way, I hope you get past this situation and get your computer up and running; that motherboard really deserves to be in a system that works.

Thanks for the advice TaylorKarras, I actually considered just that after I started getting problems with it powering up.For some reason the computer wont power on if anything is plugged into the top two usb ports (their the gray ones at the top of the IO panel in the picture)so I just moved the devices into the red or blue colored usb portsAfter that everything would power on as normal and I'd get the same BIOS msg, so I googled it and found out it was a problem with the Windows Boot Sector (I explained it in a little more detail in a previous post) but I found a guide on a W7 and Microsofts support website that fixed it for me, I just had to repair the OS boot area so the bios could recognize itHere are the pics of everything finished and up and running for anyone who wants to check it out!
