New Build Locking Up... How I Diagnose?

RE: New Build Locking Up... How I Diagnose?
Well someone is probably going to have a more detailed approach, but I would first ask are there any spare parts you have or you can borrow (a PSU you KNOW works fine?).

Because maybe step one if you suspect the PSU would be to test the system out with one you know works and seeing if it has any issues.

Many times faulty PSUs will power the fans and other things fine but won't power the main components like they should.

Usually people don't have a spare PSU though so there are other options.

If you have access to the right tool you can actually test the PSU for voltage and power but you probably do not.

The usual approach to trouble shoot a PC like this is to take it down to the bare minimum (cpu, mobo and memory) and add components one by one until you find one that makes it stop working.
