and welcome to the Forum

When you say none of the rear ports are wrkring, you mean no video and Keybourd/mouse.

Try clicking the Bench Test link in my signature to troubleshoot

RAM won't prevent the rear Mobo ports from functioning. I would definitely suspect the Mobo.
ECS Mobo=Not Good
Kingston HyperX=very troublesome RAM
Raidmax PSU=VERY low quality.

If the steps in the Bench Test did not lead you to a fix, and you are sure you have all the powersupply connectors plugged in, I would question the MotherBoard

Raidmax is a recipe for disaster...There is no other way to say it.
If the problem is your motherboard...It may well be the power supply that caused it to fail.

What one needs to know about...the relation of the negative effects of heat on the computer...That can be caused by the power supply.

Manufacturers test their PSU's at a set temperature...from this their rating is determined... for most this No. is 25 degrees Celsius...which falls short of the temperature that most computers are capable of achieving.

Given that a PSU will actually lose 2-5 watts per one degree of heat above the 25 Degree Celsius testing temperature...coupled with the fact that computers tend to run at 10 degrees higher than room temperature... In the summer time when the room temperature can easily reach 80 degrees F... your computer will be running at 33 Degrees C. or 90 Degrees F.

So the...math can make...your 500 watt power supply into a 460 watt unit.

In addition to this...what needs to be taken into account is that each degree that your computer components are operating at...under powered...adds more heat to the equation.

Consider also...the possibility...that ratings given by the manufacturer of single components...such as graphics cards...need to be treated with skepticism... Manufacturers may minimize support issues and under rate the power required...in order to make a larger profit.

The above has not taken into account...the issue of high quality vs poor quality units...Power supplies convert voltages from wall outlets to lower levels used by the PC. During this conversion, some power is lost as heat. The efficiency level of the PSU determines how much extra power must be put into the power supply to run the PC. A high quality PSU can help reduce the noise and heat generated within a computer system. The higher the efficiency rating the less heat the PSU has to deal with.

Therefore heat is the computers enemy...The hotter the temperature your PSU is forced to run at...the poorer the supply of power the rest of the components will receive...which has been known to lead to such things as crashes, freezing, rebooting, BSODís, and video distortion, as well as partial and complete failure of other components.

The fact is very few PSUís are capable of producing the wattage that the companies advertise.

For a very good comprehension of recommended brand names, wattage, and models in listed categories...Plus much more...check out this link. https://www.techsupportforum.com/f210...on-192217.html

If you are really hoping it is not the mobo. Easy test. Go to the store and get yourself a quality psu.
Like this:
https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...orsair%20650tx

or check other manufacturers:
https://www.techsupportforum.com/f210...on-192217.html

Try it in your system and see if it resolves the issue. If not, then return it.

As Tyree mentioned, ECS is not a quality mobo.

You mentioned an RMA so I presume this is the second mobo you've tried. You can get a quality mobo at a reasonable price from better manufacturers like Gigabyte for the same price or little more. I would recommend that route as well as a psu upgrade.

Absolutely! RMA and replace with a quality psu.
