Made some progress. One of the Ballistix sticks was DOA so i replaced them with 2 4Gb Klevv sticks from mt X58 rig and put the 3 Ballistix sitcks into the X58. 790 MT board, E3-1270 CPU, Raijintek Leto Pro CPC cooler, 2 8GB sticks of Klevv RAM, Windforce GTX 960 OC 4GB and a Raidmax 500W PSU. I soldered the OEM front panel leads to the aftermarket case IO circuit board and USB works. HAve to install an OS when the SSD arrives to test mic and headphones.
