Solved

My new build will only turn on for a less than a sec then turns off. What can I fix?

Here are the parts that I currently bought:

note: I know that I have an incapability error in my build but that's because my PSU didn't include an SFX to ATX bracket. I already purchased one from the Corsair site.

When I finished putting the parts together and turned on the case, it shut down immediately after less than a second. I looked at how others solved their build but I'm not exactly sure if I may be having the same problem. I have my PSU with the fan facing down, and I unplugged/reconnected all cables, making sure I pushed in all the way. I know that it turns on because the front LED fan from the case turns on. Is there a procedure that I can do to make sure each part is functioning? Or is it most likely my PSU?

    Try testing the board outside the case, for ruling out a short.

    THANK YOU, IT WORKED!
  3. You're welcome. Now check the standoffs, or whatever might have shorted the board.

    The standoffs already come pre-installed into the case, not sure what may have shorted the board.
  5. Check if each standoff on the case does correspond to a board screw hole.
