Okay, so here i have a caveman knowledge of pc building Let me post my problem.


Problem: when i turn my pc on the fans work the water cooler works everything seems to run fine But after a few moments it turns off and the lights are still on but that fans arent turning. it wont go to post or bios or any of that. usually the longer i leave it off the longer it keeps on for.





Specs: gigabyte970AD3, AMD fx8150 with asetek water cooling that came with it. DDR3 240 pin Ripjaw 2x8gb sticks.(16 total) nvidia 660TI, 850 watt power supply by thermaltake, case is a coolermaster 690 advanced 2.

I have un plugged everything and tried to find other things i have taken the components out one by one and slowly added them.
