This is my first build, the assembly part of the build seems simple to me, but I am having a problem and need help troubleshooting.
The computer cycles on and off.
I did a test build with the stock CPU cooler and it boots up normal. Then I installed the aftermarket cooler and it cycles on and off. If I loosen the screws that hold down the cooler bracket it will boot up normal. Tighten it back down and it cycles.
I removed the aftermarket cooler, carefully inspected the motherboard, everything looks good.
Then I installed the stock cooler, it boots up normal. Removed the stock cooler, installed the aftermarket cooler bracket only, no cooler, it cycles on and off.
I checked the installation of the aftermarket cooler 10 times, it is installed correctly according to the installation instructions.
This is what I have installed:
Motherboard - AS Rock Z97M Pro 4
CPU - Intel i5-4690K
CPU cooler - NZXT Respire T20
Power Supply - XFX TS550
Memory - Ballistix 2 ea 4GB DDR3-1600
Graphics Card - Gigabyte Geforce GTX 960
Does anyone have any ideas that would help?
