Hi there,

Just spent the day building my new PC, finished the build and went to turn it on. Worked perfectly the first boot and got to my bios. While in my bios i noticed that my cpu was running at 89 degrees Celcius which i know wasnt normal. The bios started stuttering after around 3 mins and was very slow and freezing. I decided to shut down the pc while still in bios to go ahead and check in my AIO cooler was properly mounted. Once taking the cooler off i found that on both sides there was a small area where the thermal paste didnt reach. I reapplied the aio cooler and then found that my fan orientations were switched, so instead of 4 intakes and 1 exhaust, i had 4 exhausts and one intake (i know i am an idiot). I switched the fans and went to boot again and found this (pictured below).


CPU: Intel Core i7-12700K 3.6 GHz 12-Core Processor
CPU cooler: Corsair iCUE H100i ELITE CAPELLIX XT 65.57 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
Motherboard: Asus ROG MAXIMUS Z690 HERO ATX LGA1700 Motherboard
Ram: G.Skill Trident Z5 RGB 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR5-6400 CL32 Memory
SSD/HDD: Seagate BarraCuda 4 TB 3.5" 5400 RPM Internal Hard Drive
Samsung 970 Evo Plus 1 TB M.2-2280 PCIe 3.0 X4 NVME Solid State Drive
Samsung 980 Pro 2 TB M.2-2280 PCIe 4.0 X4 NVME Solid State Drive
GPU: NVIDIA Founders Edition GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 12 GB Video Card
PSU: Corsair HX1000 Platinum 1000 W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply
Chassis: Corsair 4000D Airflow ATX Mid Tower Case
OS: Windows 10 Home
Monitor: Asus VG248QG 24.0" 1920 x 1080 165 Hz Monitor

Any help on what component i probably fried or any solution to the problem is greatly appreciated. Thank you all.

Faulty 3080 ti was the culprit. My worst nightmare. The computer ran smoothly on integrated graphics and I was able to reach BIOS, boot off my windows USB and install windows successfully. Horrible time to be alive gentlemen.

You sure the PSU's not to blame here? You removed a power hungry device from the system and thankfully you had display off of the iGPU. If the GPU works in a donor build with a higher wattage unit, you have narrowed down the issue in your build.
Great point. I am unfortunately far away from my personal desktop so I can't hot swap the GPUs to test it out. So I was thinking of bringing it in somewhere to test it. However, my PSU is able to power the rest of my components well (be it I know the GPU is the powerhouse that takes the most Watts). In an earlier build about 8 years ago, I once suffered from a faulty PSU and it wouldn't even allow me to boot the PC. So I don't really know!
