PROBLEM

Okay, plug everything together. Plugged it into the wall flicked the switch on the psu and then clicked the power button on the case. The fans started and the leds on the fans glowed but then after a second it turned off and then back on. And now it keeps turning on and off, its like theres a shortage somewhere but im no expert.

Is this because i dont have my cpu in just yet?

Sorry for the continous replies to my own thread but this is what ive figured out so far and hopefully it can help you solve this problem:

- When all the perif psu cables are connected to the fans molex and the mobo for one of them, they turn on and off continously.
- When all the perif psu cables are NOT connected and only the sys fans on the motherboard are connected, they still turn on and off continously.

- My psu makes a click sound at the end of the turning off phase.
- I've reconnected all my wires and made sure all my wires are well seated.
- After removing the PSU CPU cable from the mobo the fans still go on and off.
- I have my ram, ssd, motherbord, psu, in built fan controller on case, and all the fans connected thus far. All im missing is the GPU and the CPU. Surely without my CPU my fans would stay on.
- My CPU will be arriving tomorrow.

I believe that the reason your PSU is going on and off is because the CPU is not there to keep it on. It's not getting the "Power Good" signal.

Yep all is well, the computer runs with the CPU. Unfortunantly got a busted up h100i v2 extreme so ill have to wait for my replacement. Gah, cant wait. Will update this once my system is all together.
