I am a new poster to this forum, but I've been having an issue with my new desktop build, and I've run out of options that I can personally do on my own. First off, I'll post all the specs to my build:
Processr: Intel Core i5-6600K 6M Skylake Quad-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1151 95W
Motherboard: MSI Z170A GAMING M5 LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard
RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2666
Graphics: EVGA GeForce GTX 960 04G-P4-3966-KR 4GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16
Case: Thermaltake Overseer RX-I VN700M1W2N Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Power Supply: Thermaltake Toughpower TPD-0750M - SLI/ CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Gold Certification and Semi Modular
Hard Drive: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD
My current issue is that when I connect the PSU cable to the wall and hit the power button, the PSU clicks, and all of my fans and LED's come on for a brief moment, then immediately shut off. A few seconds later, this repeats again without me touching anything.
The installation all went according to the manuals, with the only exception being that I initially had the front lead switches placed in an incorrect order, so the reset button was where the power button was supposed to be on the motherboard. With this incorrect set up, the computer actually turned on and STAYED on. Naturally I wanted to have the power button be the actual power button, so I messed with the leads, and now I have my current issue.
My main question is, did I short something when I had the front leads incorrectly installed? Is it possible I have a faulty motherboard or PSU?
I have done a significant amount of troubleshooting so far, such as redoing the entire installation, replacing all of the power cables and testing each separate part with the PSU starting with the CPU and RAM. So far nothing has helped, and I am about 6 hours invested into the total build so far.
Thank you for reading my post, I greatly appreciate even the smallest help on this.
