So, I got a new graphics card and a new CPU cooler, an arctic rev.2, I installed the new graphics card with no issue and I turned it on but I realized that my stock fan for my CPU is running a bit hot, so I switched it out for the arctic rev.2, I got everything installed and plugged in but while I was installing the arctic rev.2, I heard like, a noise like metal clanging so I assumed I just bolted on the sides a bit too hard, so I loosened it expecting it to be fine, but then I turned it on and instead of having the PC boot up, the fans turn for half a second, and then turn off. Is my mobo bad or is it my CPU?
The reason I'm not sure if it's my Mobo is because it's a M5A 99X Evo and there's a green LED that goes on when everything is OK, and that LED is on, so I'd assume that if something happened to my mobo, that the LED wouldn't be going on?
and I've been here 3 times asking for help with the same computer, lol. My luck is amazing.
I figured it out, the bleep PSU was actually what was causing it. I did the paperclip pin test and it made a really low roaring noise for awhile, and then the bundle of wires actually started to smoke! Luckily my computer was completely unplugged when I did the pin test so I don't think any damage genuinely came from it.
