I am having an issue with my PC. When I turn it on, it power cycles a few times and that is it. I assumed it was the PSU even though the old one tested OK, as I heard the test can be a false positive. The motherboard looks in good condition, none of the capacitors are bulging or leaking. I have tested the motherboard with only the CPU installed and the same thing occurs.

Any insight would be much appreciated! I almost just dropped a bunch of money on a new build, but, what a waste of money!

Thanks for your time.

Motherboard - Asus Z87I Deluxe
CPU - Intel i5-4700k i think..
RAM - Kingston HyperX Black 16gb x2 (It is a kit, yes)
GPU - GeForce GTX 1070 FTW

I'm unsure what the memory QVL is.

It's probably worth mentioning that I've had this same build for several years now without issue. The only thing I have upgraded is the GPU.

Can't seem to find the ram kit number from the provided links, but going off of my RAM modules:

So is it listed on the QVL per link I provided?
Obviously he said hes been using it for years without an issue so Im sure a "compatibility" issue wouldnt just pop up at random.....

Have you reset the cmos to make sure nothing got messed up in the bios?

Also have you tried using 1 stick of ram at a time to rule out a possibly failing chip?

I thought I did reset the BIOS, I can't remember for sure, but will try that today. Same with trying one memory card at a time. What is the minimum amount of hardware needed to run these tests? Would it be the CPU, power button/reset button?

I held the BIOS flashback button, cleared CMOS, and tried one RAM card at a time. It fires up, but only for a second. Am I doing something wrong? I mean more than likely, the question is, what am I doing wrong? lol

I've never had an issue with this build until now. I've probably been running these components for almost 8 years now without problems.

It's beyond me what it could be..

My PC no longer power cycles, I press the power button and it shuts down right away. Have you all given up on me? lol
Any help is much appreciated.
