I just finished building my new computer, but I'm having a problem. It will power on and everything will start working for around 5-10 seconds, then it just cuts off, and then comes back on. It repeats this cycle over and over. I figured that it was the power supply or my wiring. I'm not really sure. If anyone has any ideas on how to fix it they would be much appreciated.
It doesn't stay on long enough for me to be able to tell, I'll try that when I get home though.
My components are:
EVGA GTX GeForce 660 SC
ASRock Z77 Extreme4
Thermaltake Frio Advanced CPU Cooler
32GB G.Skills Sniper Series DDR3-1866 RAM
SeaSonic X750 Gold PSU
If it is only a few seconds it may be that the mobo was fried or DOA. From what I understand if the PSU notices it is not sending power to anything it will shut off automatically. I had a situation where my light and fans would turn on for like 1-2 seconds then shut off, at first i replaced the psu thinking it was that but it turned out the board itself was dead.
I don't get any image when cutting it on, it stayed on long enough for me to tell. Thanks for the help, I will try messing around with it. I'll try some tests, I think it's the motherboard though. But what do the stand offs have to do with it not working properly?
Then that's probably the problem. What the case manual said and what the motherboard uses are different, one of the places where the motherboard has a hole there isn't a standoff. I didn't know it was a big deal and I had already installed it. I'll take it out of the case, run some things, and if it works then I'll reinstall it and use that standoff too
