I just built a new system with an Intel Core i7 6700k, GIGABYTE Z170X Gaming 7 motherboard and a GIGABYTE R9 390 GPU.  I also have a Samsung 950 PRO M.2 SSD (boot drive) Samsung 850 PRO 2.5" SSD and Windows 10 Pro.  


I first got all the parts and built the system and everything worked fine.  I installed Windows and began running burn in tests on the GPU.  The computer was great.  Then I received my Corsair accessories like my light bar upgrade kit for the Dominator Platinum DDR4, blue individually sleeved DC cable kit for the AX860i and a front I/O panel for the Obsidian Series 350D(it was for a USB 3.0 exchange on my 650D case).  


So after I changed out front USB 3.0 port cables, swapped out all the cables running into the PSU, and changing the light bars on the DIMMs, I put it all together and I got nothing on the motherboard.  The system wouldn't even start up.  In fact, none of the LED lights on the motherboard worked.  So after playing with some cables, I got the lights to work, but then the system would shut off and restart automatically.  So I changed out the motherboard and GPU.  I then put the system back together and it still wanted to reboot automatically.  I then waited 2 weeks to exchange the RAM, but it still does the same thing.  Finally, I just swapped out the Corsair H105 AIO cooler and still the same thing.  All the lights come on, all fans start, the H105 looks like it's starting, but then after 5 seconds, it shuts back off.  


At this point I'm wondering if the Isopropyl Alcohol I used to clean my beautiful 6700k killed it.  So to recap, I'm not getting any video and the system shuts off and restarts automatically.  Any help is appreciated.

If you having problem with system, try boot it up with minimum components.


Basically I will remove the motherboard from the case and boot it up will minimum components (bare bone) - boot it up with just RAM and on-board graphic adapter.


If it is boot up okay, then I will start adding additional component  like GPU one at the time to find out which component is having problem.

What happened when you put everything back, original parts, original hookups, like it was during the great running days?
