I've made sure I have my standoffs installed correctly, the ram has been tried in all possible ways, the PSU is a 600w corsair that works in other systems, and my components are seated properly.
My issue: When the 24 pin, and 8 pin are installed, the pc turns on for a nano second. It shuts off quickly after hitting the power button, and refuses to turn back on unless I re-plug the psu from the wall and flip the switch again causing it to turn off quickly yet again. However, when I remove the 8 pin cpu power, the system stays on, fans spinning, CPU fan running, Hard drives spinning, and even my GPU spinning.
The system only stays on when I have the cpu power OUT, regardless of configuration
I have even tried removing the CPU and it still will start up for a micro second if the cpu-power is in.
I think my MOBO is dead. Can anyone second this?
The board is a MSI 970A-G46 AM3+
CPU - Fx-8350
Ram - 16gb of ballistix
PS - Corsair 600w
