This is odd. I get it started up, and it runs for like 3 seconds and shuts off again. I dont think its PSU as i've tried several. Do you think it could be CPU??????? Or maybe ram? I'm thinking i got a bad DFI (AGAIN) or maybe a craptastic CPU.


Btw its an nf2 ultra infinity running ddr 500 adata with a 2600m

thanks.

try testing it piece by piece. Take out all non-essential parts and trouble shoot from there. Could be like you sad, cpu, ram, mobo, or psu.

Most likley overheating issue, try reseating your heatsink and see if that works.

does it have anything where a heatsink MUST be on?

Eh? :eh?:
