My PSU:
EVGA SuperNOVA 850 B2 110-B2-0850-V1 80+ BRONZE 850W Semi-Modular

I've recently put together a new build and I was having difficulty powering it on. At first, it kept powering off and powering on every other second so I was wondering if I had damaged something at some point during construction. Every time it turns on it seems to struggle while powering up, but powers up regardless and stays on. I was able to play Half-Life Alyx for a few hours a day or two ago with no issue.

My question is why can't I plug all of my fans into my motherboard if I was able to on the last build I had? EDIT: Do I have enough PSU power, or do I need more?

1. Upon initial power problems, I unplugged 1x MegaFlow 200mm fan from the board.

2. I regulated 3 fans 1x SickleFlow 120mm and 2x MegaFlow 200mm to peripheral power on the PSU.

Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know ASAP, and thanks for taking the time to read this.
