Hey all, looking for some assistance here. I just built a new machine but I've got a problem at the moment of truth... when I attempt to power it on, everything lights up and all fans spin for 0.5 seconds, then it shuts itself down.
I've stripped it down to the barebones just to get a POST failure, and I can't even do that. Here's what I'm running:
Corsair 600T Case
Silverstone 1000W PSU
GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3P Motherboard
LGA1155 Intel i7-2600k CPU
Cooler Master 212 Heatsink+CPU Fan (Artic Silver 5 Applied)
And that is literally everything that is plugged in. When I hit the power button, all 3 case fans spin, the CPU fan spins, but it insta-shuts down.
Here's the rest of the equipment I took out during troubleshooting:
AMD HD 7970
2x Corsair Vengeance RAM
Got any pro-tips? Might this be a short somewhere with the case?
These new-fangled motherboards added another 8-pin connector needed from the PSU in addition to the customary 20/24-pin I'm used to. "I'm gettin' to old for this s---."
