It is tough it figure out which is defective.
I personally have seen more fried CPU's than I have defective boards.

Most of the boards I did find to be bad had been flashed into the next dimension...

I would look carefully at your cpu for signs of heat related scorching or lack of thermal grease etc.

I keep a spare motherboard around for testing, actually I lie, I keep tons of $hit all over the place in hopes that someday I will find a use for it.. but hey, occasionally I do find something useful or put something to good use.

Good luck ...
Maybe someone here will have a better idea.

Hmm... have you thought about the power supply.

Make sure the voltage setting is correct. Also there is a fuse reset button on the side of your Power supply.

Try that. Depending of if you have recently had a storm or not .. you may have had a power surge... or maybe the voltage switch just got tripped ;)
