  1. I am still waiting for the Cooler Master replacement, so I went ahead and bought a new Corsair RM650 in the meantime. Connected it all up yesterday and haven't had a single issue with the PC since. That seems fairly conclusive that the issue was with the PSU. Hopefully this helps someone else one day.
  2. Unfortunately the stress test only lasted about 1:15 hours last night before shutting down. I'm moving forward with the warranty replacement. Stay tuned if that resolves this issue or not...
  3. You may not have that one - there was probably another audio connector for the audio ports. Yes - I’ve been operating under the assumption that your got a power cable connected to the PSU and the switch is ON on the back of the PSU?
  4. If your computer is booting up, you could also try the following:
  5. Memtest came back with zero faults (4 passes), and the machine has been stable the whole time... I'll boot it back into windows tonight and leave a stress test running to see if it holds up overnight.
  6. I'm assuming you've already checked that this all lines up, but I'll add it in here anyways. Case connectors Motherboard It could also be the ram, but considering you've got 2 sticks, they'd both probably have to be faulty for it to be not powering on.
  7. If thats the case, then its either a faulty component (PSU, motherboard, CPU) or the case power button isn't correctly connected (refer to the image I sent through earlier). If anyone else has any ideas, go for it.
  8. Does the CPU fan spin at all? Do any lights come on anywhere?
  9. Probably not until the load/temperature is high enough.
  10. From what I can tell in the picture, the front panel connectors aren't connected in the bottom right corner (correct me if I'm wrong).
  11. Any chance you're able to send through a better picture (more light would be helpful)?
  12. You're picture is a bit dark and blurry, so it'd hard to tell - but can you confirm you've got the 8-pin power connected in the top left corner of the motherboard?
  13. So I managed to reload Windows, update it, install all latest drivers, run SSD check, run GPU & CPU stress test with no issues. I then was rebooting to run memtest86 and had the shutdown happen. I've got it up again and it's been running memtest for the past 30mins with no errors. It does appear to be either Motherboard or PSU at this stage. Does anyone know any checks/tests I can run to help narrow it down?
  14. Okay. Update. I have a pending warranty request for the PSU that I'm still waiting to get processed. In the meantime I've noticed something else which throws some confusion into the mix... it appears that often (not always) the 'shutdown' occurs when I'm rebooting. e.g. I noticed it when installing windows updates. It would do it's usual 30%...40%... then restart to come back and continue on, and just as it was restarting the computer would power off completely. That is the point I would need to unplug the power cable for a few minutes etc before I could turn it back on. I am currently reformatting it just to make sure Windows isn't somehow causing the issue. However it has already powered off once during the re-install process.
  15. Thanks @BlackManINC. I did read that thread as well. If it appears to be a PSU issue then I'll have to go through the warranty process.
