  1. Well I don't think they did a thorough check, as the technician simply said it was a defective motherboard and cpu and immediately offered to sell me replacement parts.
  2. Hello all, Hoping to find some help here before shelling out more money. I have a custom build I recently opened up to upgrade the wifi card + CPU cooler. I took advantage and reapplied thermal paste to both my CPU & GPU. After putting everything back together my computer turns on and my fans start for about 1 second and then shut off. The PC no longer boots. I've attempted to troubleshoot numerous ways such a removing components one-by-one & resetting my CMOS but the same issue persists. Today I went ahead and purchased a new mobo, ram, & cpu (took pc to Microcenter & they concluded both motherboard & cpu are defective) and the same exact thing is occurring! It leads me to believe probably a faulty PSU, but what could cause this? How did the PSU crap out all of a sudden, if this is the case? I'm always super careful when messing with my rig (make sure I touch metal before opening,, turning off pc completely, etc...) See old + new specs below. Old Specs (owned since late 2015) CPU: AMX FX-8350 Motherboard: Gigabtye 970A-DS3P ATX GPU: Powercolor Radeon R9 380 4GB RAM: A-DATA XPG 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 2133MHz PSU: Corsair RMi 650W New Specs (as of today) CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6GHZ Motherboard: Asus B550M-A Prime mATX GPU: Powercolor Radeon R9 380 4GB RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4 3000MHz PSU: Corsair RMi 650W Any advice?
