[PROBLEM]
When the 8 pin PSU connector is connected the fans spin for half a second then the computer turns off. CPU check light of the motherboard blinks red once. Help would be much appreciated.

[TRIED]
I have tried the CPU on a different computer and it works just fine.

The PSU(new) seems to work just fine as well.

[SPECS]
Motherboard: ROG STRIX Z390-F Gaming

CPU: i5-7600k Unlocked

RAM: Vengeance LPX 8GV 2400MHz DDR4 (2 of them)

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

PSU: SV650 Corsair
 
That CPU will actually fit the socket of the motherboard, but it will never work in that motherboard.

I suggest using only supported processors:

Thanks, I will order one of the CPU from this list and see if it works then.
