New Build - Power Quickly Cycling
Hey guys! First time posting here.

My buddy recently purchased and assembled this site's Tier 5 PC. Upon powering up, the top exhaust fan's LED blinked rapidly and all other fans would start to spin and stop. This happens rapidly until powered down.

We then slowly troubleshot each component and the problem still persists with only the mobo attached to the power supply. Any ideas at all before we get a replacement mobo?

Here's a quick video of the issue:

I had the same problem. Fans would start, then stop. I checked all the power connections and didn't like how the 20/4 main connection looked. Reseated it and everything powered up normally.

That's usually the sign of a grounding or power issue. I'd unplug/plug again all power cables, make sure that they are fully inserted. Same thing with the video card, make sure that it is fully inserted.
