Your PSU should have a 2x4 CPU power cable. Looking like this:

> Make sure it's inserted CORRECTLY (it has a notch so it goes one way) to the top left CPU power connector on your motherboard

This is a fairly low end unit. Is this new? If so, return it

What GPU are you pairing this with? Do you only have one DIMM (Memory stick)?
I can help find a better unit.

Does the CX600 even have two 8 pin CPU connectors ? The PC might refuse to POST without both CPU_PWR headers being plugged into a PSU.

It doesn't and I am not sure if that's the reason but I tried to google for it and nothing came up

Thanks. I suggest these units:
AG650F - 70 USD
AG750F - 95 USD
Rev D.F 850 -  120 USD

The second 8PIN connector is optional iirc

Either way this is a low end unit and would be best to switch it out.

Thing is I just switched to my old system (Same psu and gpu just different mbd and cpu) and it works.

So I either plugged stuff wrong or there is a problem with new cpu /mbd?

What are your old system specs? 

Check to make sure:

  • CPU is fully seated and correctly installed
  • DIMMs are fully seated and slots are free of debris

126K + Z690 A Pro is just too hungry of a combo for that unit. CX600 is known to have issues with delivering stable power
T4 in PSU Tierlist CX 2012 <=600W [green-label]

I highly doubt the CPU or Motherboard is at fault, in which case an RMA (or if retailer warranty is still up) is your best bet.
