When i start the pc, i will see all fan working for less than 1 second, if i want to press the start button again I will have to unplug the power cable
What could cause that kind of failure ?

I would look over wiring also check to make sure none of the board mounts are grounding, re seat all peripherals.  I am sure others will add ideas.

Do you get any beeping on startup from the internal speaker?  If so check your motherboard manual for help on what they mean.


From my experience with this type of issues it could be three probable causes;  powersupply, motherboard or RAM.  To troubleshoot this I recommend going to bare minimum to figure out the issue.  If this was my build this is what I would do:


1.  Disconnect the WD 1TB drive and boot with just the SSD installed.

2.  If that CPU has an intergrated GPU I would take out the video card and use onboard only while testing.

3.  Since you only have one stick of RAM you can't test the RAM, do you have another stick that is compatible with the motherboard you can use for testing (doesn't matter if they are different speeds, you will only have one in at a time.

4.  Go over your cable connections for the power button, reset button, power LED, HDD LED etc and make sure they are connected as the manual shows.


With the bare minimum connected see if you can get it to boot to bios.  If it still only powers for 1 second and shuts down try a spare powersupply (if you have one of course).  I ran a PSU calculator with your equipment and your PSU should be fine as you are using just about 400w.  


If you switch out the PSU and it is still doing it see if your SSD is the issue and start the system with the HDD.


If it does boot you can start to add items like the GPU and other hard drive.  This way you can determine where the issue is.
