PSU/Motheroard failure?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi everyone, i was hoping i could get a little help on this one. 

 

I'm having boot issues with my PC, and i can't figure out a solution to it. I was waiting for No Man's Sky to release on Steam when i thought to myself "you know, it would probably run more stabile if i turned off my CPU overclock". So i soft-shut down the system in Windows (Windows 10 Pro 64-bit), and when i pressed the power button to turn it on again... Nothing. just a quick flash from the LEDs on my soundcard and a "clack" from the power supply. i instantly thought the PSU died (EVGA SuperNova G2 850w), but i tested the unit with my trusty 12v bridging plug and the unit seems functional (it powers my D5 pump just fine, so i assume it works). My attention turned to the Mobo, which from close inspection had some fluid spillage from the CPU block onto the PCB, but nothing major. I suspect it's the board, but why didn't it short circuit in Windows then? As stated, it was 100% operational until i powered the system down in Windows, so im at a loss and have no idea to the cause of the issue. Any clues or help is appreciated. 

 

Specs:

Core i7 4790K @ 4.8 GHz

ASUS Z97 Sabertooth Mark S (Sabranco) from the TUF lineup 

HyperX FURY 32 gb 1866 MHz ram  

PNY GTX 1080 Founders Edition

EVGA SuperNova G2 850w

Samsung 950 Pro + Samsung 850 EVO

Custom cooling from EKWB

Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

Motherboard BIOS 2702 - GPU BIOS Whatever is latest from NVIDIA. 

 

i've already uninstalled the CPU block, GPU and a radiator.

sometimes a short can't kill a computer immediately but bricks it after a restart, i'm guessing that the BIOS ROM chip got fried and doesn't work, also some water cooling fluid is not conductive but if it drys it can cause a bridge and kill the system


****SORRY FOR MY ENGLISH IT'S REALLY TERRIBLE*****

Have you tried turning it on again? If so, does it keep doing that? Maybe clear CMOS?

it's fried. i cleared the CMOS, still a no-go. I have ordered an ASRock Z97 OC Formula to replace this board, should be here any day now.
