Hmmm it could be the CPU fan not working or a faulty CPU.

yes.

do you have another CPU to test with? is the board beeping or anything indicating improper chip or heatsink installation?

Well, as for static electricity, I fried one of my mobos that way just by pushing the power button. Not sure how it traveled from there to the mobo, but it did. It didn't beep either. I had it one day. eVGA RMA cross-shipping FTW!

I bet it's his mobo.
