Well i just put together my new pc yesterday and everything went well, about 5min ago i was playing a game and just adjusting the settings then my pc just shut off randomly, the fans try to spin but don't its just like a nudging motion but only when i push the power button. I dony know what it could be i assume if it was the cpu it would turn un but nothing would happend if it was the graphics card it would turn on and id have not signal if it was the power supply the rgb fans wouldn't be lighting up, this truly is the 1st stage of teach hell.

The nudging motion implies to me that it is being stopped.  Machine starts says “holy heck there’s something really wrong here!” and shuts itself down to protect itself.  Which settings you were adjusting might matter a lot.  
The standard way to wipe such things back to factory is to clear the cmos.  There might be a button or something but one sure fire way is to unplug the computer from the wall and pull the little silver disk battery that maintains its cmos memory. They are held in through various ways.  Your motherboard manual may have removal instructions if it isn’t just a simple spring (sometimes they can be a bit complex)  It can take awhile for it to fade sometimes but a few minutes without power will usually do it.  Then put it back in the way it origionally went ant try the machine.  This will wipe any overclock or other adjustment and set it back to bog standard (unless the setting was a bios flash)  This may or may not help.

Did you open the case to check if a cable is blocking a fan and if everything is still connected?

Yes i have tested everything tye power supply is working i think it might be the motherboard. Because now with the 24pin connected to the board the rgb doesn't even come on meaning the motherboard isnt getting power anymore but when i used my psw connecter my rgb will turn on and the fans spin up so... Either the motherboard completely bit the dust or the motherboard bit the dust and took my cpu or possibly even gpu with it and i hope that wasnt that case
