i'm new on superuser so correct me if i'm breaking some rules here,
I have built a new pc system. when trying to boot both cpu and psu fan spin for a couple secods then go off, and i can re-do this without any need to remove power or anything. if started only connecting the 20+4 pin power cable without the 4 pin cable, the fans spin for more but still i get shut down around 5 seconds. In that brief powering sequence i do get lights on. the setup is core i3 8100 processor, paired with a H110 asus motherboard, using an 8 Gb DDR4 ram. i'm using my previous PSU which i believe is working fine. i don't have any other cards or peripheral connected yet.
My first guesses are either motherboard-CPU incompatibility, or a damaged PSU or motherboard, but i would appreciate any further insights.
UPDATE: i removed the CMOS battery and unplugged the power, after re-plugging the device i get a constant spinning of both CPU and PSU fans, but no other output, not even a beep, and as i try to connect the 4-pin cable, it goes back to previous state, not getting a constant fan spin.
Thanks for any ideas, Have fun in quarantine
