Today I installed the CM Hyper 212 EVO CPU cooler in my computer. It went rather smoothly but afterwards my PC wouldn't start up anything. Not even beeps.
I have tried resetting BIOS, re-seating all cables, turning on without GPU, putting back the old cooler, nothing. So my PC already had issues with crashing under load (sometimes) so I figured it completely went dead in between yesterday and turning on today after installing the new cooler.
So I figured the PSU is failing, I tested if it would power anything at all by disconnecting it from everything(except the wall) and connecting two pins on the 24pin connector so the Fan would receive power. That worked, it started spinning. But when connected to everything in my PC nothing happens, not even the PSU's fan or any leds.
So now I am wondering if it is a motherboard failure or PSU failure. Basically I am looking for some kind of confirmation on which part it is. I don't have any spare parts or a meter to test the PSU's wattage or something.
My PC specs are:
- GPU: MSI Nvidia GTX970 4GB
- CPU: AMD FX-8350 @ 4Ghz
- Motherboard: MSI 970 Gaming
- RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2x4GB DDR3 1800MHz (running at 1333Mhz)
- PSU: Corsair CX750M, 750 watt.
- SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 250GB
- HDD: WD Black 1TB
- OS: Windows 10 Pro 64bit
P.S. There's a sort of oily liquid leaking on my motherboard, although after googeling I kept reading it's "normal" and I wouldn't have to worry about it.
