So, i built a comp for the first time, not all to knowledgable in the whole process overall but i followed a good video tutorial throughout the way. Anyways, problem is, when i try to startup the comp, the cpu fan kind of goes insane. At first it clicks twice, not starting to spin either time, then it spins insanely fast for a few seconds, which is then followed by the system resetting. This is the first time i've worked on one of these and I just really want it to be able to run already. What exactly can be wrong here, and how exactly can i fix this and get it running?

I just used the stock heatsink that was with the i5-3570k. Is the pre-applied amount not enough?

Still not sure what to do, not sure if getting a new heatsink fan would fix the issue.

No luck trying to boot without gpu, same issue same behavior. And so, would the psu be the actual problem in this case? Or do you just recommend the swap regardless?

get a friend who has done built pcs before to come have a look.

from what your describing you are likely to damage something otherwise.
