I have had this pc for several months now without any problem. Today however it decided to randomly not boot up. All i see when i turn on the PSU is the light from the motherboard that indicates power is running through.
Sometimes the PSU would make a "click" noise (as it did when i turned it off normally), sometimes it would not make any sound at all

As you can see, the motherboard is lighting up, but it still wont turn on.
Right now i suspect that it might be a problem with the PSU, but it is not a cheap one, it is made by corsair, it should last more than a few months??

Things i have already tried:

I have already tried swapping the power and reset buttons.
I have tried to turn it on by using a screwdriver on the powerbutton pins.
I have plugged out everything except the power cord (outside of the pc).
I have tried taking out the GPU and ram as well.
I have tried reseating the 24pin motherboard connector.
I have tried updating to the most recent bios with bios flashback.

PC specs:

Motherboard: Asus ROG Strix B550-f
PSU: Corsair RM850
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5600x
GPU: Asus TUF RTX 3080 OC
