|Do you have the 8 pin (4+4) Aux. CPU power connector plugged into the MBoard.|
Your GPU draws a lot of power. The PCIe slot provides 75W, the 6 pin connector is another 75W & the 8 pin another 150W for 300W total. That equals 25A@+12V. Your
CPU is rated at 125W which is another 10.5A@+12V.
Your drives all run on 5V & 12V, mostly 12V. RAM need power too.
This adds up to lots of 12V power required. XFX recommends an 850WPSU with a 750W minimum.
I am not saying that your PSU is at fault, just pointing it out.
Did you use a thermal pad or paste?
Re-seat all cards, cables and RAM.
If clearing the CMOS you MUST have the PSU unplugged or switched off.
Boot directly into the BIOS and disable fast boot and full logos. Then if the computer stays on, check the temps and voltages. Voltages should remain within +-5% of rated voltages at all times.
You should have bench tested the board outside the case. If the above suggestions do not help then post back for instructions on how to bench test.
I assume you checked the BIOS version supports your CPU and that you purchase compatible RAM?
riider posted while I was typing. As per bench testing.
