As of right now i Built a system that worked previously for 5 days in operation for gaming. The specs are
Motherboard: Asus X99-E W/S USB 3.1
CPU: Intel Core I7 6850K
Ram: Gskill Trident Z 16x4 GB @ 3200 mhz 14ns latency Cas/Ras
HDD: 1.2 TB Intel 750 SSD PCIE 3.0 X4
PSU: Be quiet DarkPower Pro 1200 Watt
Optical Drive: LG Bluray Player 48x16x12 RW
Case: Cooler Master Cosmos 2 ultra tower
I was in windows 10 from a cold boot for about two minutes and the thing shutdown abruptly. After it shutdown, i could not boot the system back up to post. I hit the power button, the fans would start spinning and click on and off in a looping fashion every 3 seconds. My initial thought was the PSU was bad, So i RMA the power supply. I got a brand new replacement of that same model, plugged it in re-seated the connectors the problem still persisted. Power button gets pushed it does not fully power on to begin posting. Still puzzled, i sent my board to Asus to have it looked at through the RMA process. I shipped the board, out they sent me the same board back. It was off to one of their repair facilities. So at the very least it should have been tested, it passed on their part (allegedly).
So after going through two power supplies and shipping the board back for a repair. I re-assemble and re-seat the hardware. My computer still shuts off within 2 seconds of pushing the power button.... The next step i tried was checking the leads using a multi meter. I tested each and every individual pin on the PSU, all the voltages came out within the specified range. Then working with my father, we disconnected the case power button, to by pass the switch. figuring maybe there is a short in the wire that's not supplying enough power to start the boot process. We put a jumper on the PWR switch pins where the IO connectors go for the case buttons. To power on the PC all we had to do is flick the on switch for the PSU. That failed!!!! I am like WTF?!!!!
To recap i went through an RMA ASUS board. Two Power supplies of the same make and model. A switch by pass using a jumper for the I/O pins, and still. I cant get the board to stay on after power is supplied.... If anyone has any ideas it would be much appreciated..... Also i do have the latest firmware for the Asus X-99E W/S. So i am literally confused on what is possibly inhibiting this thing from being initialized.
