I would take a look at the caps (Capacitors ) Bulging..or leaking?

Any beeps when you power up?

both of the pc's arent beeping one just cant stay on for long the coolers just suddently shutdown (tryt them in other pc's and they work just fine) so it shutdown because it gets overheated and one just turns on power button and does nothing and checked the capacitors and there not bulging or leaking

Try a different power cable, different outlet?
