Bios will not display on boot v gene (76)

Hey,

I have just changed my motherboard over to a new case which is now having issues.
Everything appears to run ok, but i just cannot get any display no matter what I try.

My unit was working prior to switching case; all my parts are still mint condition; I have tested with replacement graphics cards and running less ram.
The motherboard displays code 76: I have rebuilt this three times now.

Running with minimum specs now does also has no display.
No USB plugged in, power recieced though.

Any ideas or help with this one?

Thanks

EDIT***

Diagnostics performed -
1)boot without ram (alternate ram also)
2)boot without gpu (alternate gpu also)
3)boot without HDD (alternate HDD also)
4)boot without all of the above
5)boot outside case to eliminate short circuits
6)Have not tested PSU (working on alternate PC)
7)Check CPU (remount CPU)
8)checked with stock intel heastsink
9)checked for water damage and any physical damage (all equipment ~2months old)
10)remounted cpu and checked for bent pins
11)cleared CMOS

I haven't heard of a faulty CPU before, but not too sure what else i can further test?

Please make sure that you have the 12v CPU connector securely seated, and that your VGA power cables are connected.

One other thing to do quickly is reseat your ram, it might just be that the ram looks like it is in correctly but not quite flush.

The code indicates that one of your devices is causing the system difficulty in posting by the way.

Hi HiVizMan,

Thanks for your reply; i have already tried all your suggestions; tried again just for the test.

I am starting to lean towards an issue with my CPU of all things; but first i am going to put a new CPU cooler in to check if it starts up.
I noticed my fan was cutting out (stock fan, needed to be replaced..)

I will see how i go with my new CPU cooler then possibly get a hold of intel for a replacement CPU.
