So I am no computer expert, but I have been having some problems since installing an extra case fan. The extra fan is the same make and model (coolermaster) as the one that came from manufacturer. Since I installed it the computer won't boot. The fans, lights, hard drive, everything powers up for about a second and then stops. Sometimes, when I keep trying, it will boot just fine and work. I have attached a video so you can see what is going on.
I removed the CPU fan when I installed the new fan, and have installed it back into place, I know enough to be albe to do that correctly. Could it be this?
Aparently it could be some wires someone touching the case or the mobo but I don't see any signs of this.
Then, when recording the video I got the RED DRAM L.E.D come on and then starting flashing when it finally booted. What is going on?!!
Also I am using 8gb carry ram. Its standard speed (not 1600)
And an Intel Core i5 3570k overclocked @ 4.4Ghz
So I replaced the Thermal Compound with new stuff. I used a small pee size in the middle, then applied the cooler on top to spread it out evenly. I was recommended by PC World to not spread it using a credit card or something.
Once I turn the power off, and the L.E.D goes off on the mobo, I can then try and power up again. After it fails, pressing the power button does absolutely nothing. I have to turn the power off again in order to try and boot it up.
I have tried it with another 700w PSU which is exactly the same as the one in my current build, and the same problem, so pretty sure its not PSU
