    1) Make sure your PSU is working and replace it if it isnt
    2) Scan the mainboard and make sure that there is nothing that might short something out, like metal chipping, components, that move out of place while heatgunning, etc.
    3) Replace MOSFETs and regulators that are known to cause it if they were blown
    4) Check if the standby voltages are existent, if they are not at a certain area replace the parts in the area which are likely to be defective.
    5) Reflow the CPU, HANA chip
    In rare cases a reflow might also fix it.
    6) X-Clamp replacement
    The GPU heatsink might be shorting out if you screwed it in too tight...
