After doing the yearly cleanup PC didn't switch on, rooted the problem to the cpu. Took PC apart, cpu seems suspicious. All parts approx 2 years old, no overclock, cpu - i5 8600k. Image here - https://ibb.co/41wrndQ

The 4 pads immediately to the left of center are definitely burned. Some serious arcing occurred there. Check the corresponding pins in the socket and you'll likely see damage there as well. You can try to clean this but it's likely a writeoff for both.

Yes this is exactly what I thought but needed a 2nd opinion just to confirm, I can't really comprehend how the arcing occured as I didn't move or detach the CPU from it's previous position.. Anyways, thanks for your reply!
