I recently built a new pc, however when I try to turn it on, it starts to before shutting down again. This happens every time unless I unplug the Cpu cord, in which case it runs but doesn't boot.
I am using an Intel i5 processor, 16gb of ram, a Rosewill Nautilus Case, a EVGA 500 watt power supply, and a GEFORCE GTX 1060 gpu.

While I look at the motherboard - common mistakes for the first time builder are incorrect board mounting so that part of the circuit PCB is contacting the case.
Incorrect or not properly made - power connections from PSU
Wrong cable used from PSU - especially easy if a modular PSU
RAM not correctly seated.

The fact that it starts and turns off with CPU connected, but will not boot without CPU means little, except that it MAY point to a bent pin when connecting CPU

Your first task while I look at the board is to check ALL connections are properly made and where for instance there is a clip of some sort such as on the main power and CPU power that these are fully seated and then check that ram is full seated and clips engaged at the end of each stick

I will post further when I have had a look at the board

All the ram is properly seated and the standoffs are all installed. All the connections have been made and I'm not using a modular power supply.

You job now is to look at pages 24 and 25 of your manual and check that you have the connections for the CPU power and any system fans in the correct header on the board. The

Please do not think I am being critical but when I say to check connections I mean CHECK them, you cannot possibly have checked as per post 4 in less than 7 minutes whch is the time from my post to your reply.

What is the exact model of i5
What is the exact ram details
Those boards are quite sensitive to which ram and is your ram on the QVL list of ram

IF you cannot find anything on the basic checks I have recommended, and again I stress that having built a system and now it will not post or even stay on - you need now to check MOST carefully - cursory examinations are no good at this stage, proceed as here

The processor is an i5-7500 and the ram is a G.Skill Ripjaws 5 Series 16GB 288 pin DDR4 2400. The Led indicates that there is a problem with the cpu, but I already replaced it.

I do not think that CPU will work on a Z370 chip

Z370 boards and Coffee Lake CPUs are both incompatible with previous Intel hardware. You cannot use a Kaby Lake or Skylake CPU in a Z370 motherboard, and you cannot use a Coffee Lake processor in a Z170 or Z270 motherboard.

on the link above click compatible products
Z370 is not there and neither is it on the motherboard CPU compatibility
