So I’ve fitted a new PSU and the pc powers on for as long as my CPU power lead isn’t connected. If it’s connected it runs for around 10 seconds clicks then turns off? Any ideas or fixes?

I have something similar lately. Try start the pc lying flat after reseating the RAM and just make sure the cpu heat sink is stable.
I am never brave enough to plug out cpu fan. I will just replace the stock Intel cooler when I reseat it.

Did you get this solved? I found sometimes everything works after reseating as the motherboard has shortcircuited. That is a sign of motherboard needing replacing probably.
