    I've already replaced the PSU, added some arctic silver to the cpu, disconnected everything except for the 24pin and 4pin aux connectors. The computer turns on, then shuts itself off almost right away.
    I disconnected the 4pin aux connector, so just the 24pin was connected and NOTHING else, and it stayed on. So I pinpointed it to the 4pin....what does this mean?
