So what's the deal with these two? I'm leaning along the lines that it's EVGA's fault as the supply works on many other boards without a hitch whatsoever.

When connected to the Classified board and the chassis power button is depressed the LED on the Galaxy turns green for a split second then glows red. The motherboard still has power and the fan on the PSU turns. If I hold on the power button down on the system for five seconds the PSU will turn back off and the LED glows orange (standby). The process can be repeated over and over. The motherboard never even beeps or gets a chance to post at all!

Will EVGA replace the board with one that works?
