I'm having trouble with my new pc. When I turn it on my psu clicks and the pc doesn't boot. I've tested the psu for a short(the old paper clip trick), but I'm not sure what else it could be. My mother board rgb turns on when the power switch is on so idk. Also, I have already booted it and installed windows on it. I've already installed drivers and even started gaming last night. Today I turned it on but had to walk away and when I came back it was turned off and now won't boot.

I talked to Asus support and he walled me through some steps, we figured out it was my ram slots. My pc won't boot at all with ram in any slot. I still don't think it's that exactly, I think maybe my ram is just fried. But my ram was working fine the first night i used my pc?

I find it hard to believe all 4 sticks of RAM are faulty. You should be able to boot with at least one of the sticks in slot DIMM_A2. Have you tried clearing the CMOS?
