So today most of my new pc parts came in:
gpu r9 270x,
cpu amd fx8320,
mobo gigabyte ga-970 ud3p,
psu corsair cx500m.
I still needed some ram and storage, but i decided to put everything together and do a test boot anyway.
I knew it wouldn't go into the bios without ram, i wanted to see if the fans and led's on all the components were working.
When i tried to turn it on, it would turn on and off repeatedly each time staying on for a random amount of time and the led's on the gpu would flicker also the cpu fan was turning realy slowly making the heatsink real hot almost untouchable. At this point i turned the power off becouse i didnt want to fry the cpu or anything else. After waiting for the cpu to cool off i tried again this time without the 8pin cpu power connector pluged in. Turned it on and everything seemed stable, no more flickering lights or repeated power on/off's.
I think its either ram, psu, or the mobo thats doing that, but i might be completely wrong, i dont know! I will appreciate any help.
