My computer will not power after loop cleaning

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I just put a new EK water block on my XFX 5970 XXX edition and after that I filled the loop and let it bleed. After an hour I came back and hooked everything back up only to find that my computer will not power the fans will jerk and then nothing, I removed the card and it powered right up. I put the card back in a different slot and no power, after removing the card to see if it still powered nothing now my computer will not power. I press the power switch and the mobo lights will flicker and that's it. I am at a loss what do I do? My psu is XFX 850 watt and my motherboard is a 890fxa-gd70. I have 4g of ram

have you tried a different PSU?, do you have another system to test the vid card in? did you let everything dry properly, dry up any water around?

well all you can do in that situation is try different plugs then test other parts to see what may be keeping it from turning on, have you tried clearing your cmos and running everything stock? (if not already) IMO it sounds like the PSU is messing with you, i would try another one if you have a spare, i had a similar situation before and a diff psu worked, best of luck

EDIT*when you put in the ram was it auto recognized? may want to try it with less and see if that will make it boot as well

The 4/8 pin is plugged in, right?

I made that mistake yesterday.

For some reason the 5550 I put in made the system boot. Do you think the back plate could be shorting something out?

That is a definite sign of a short.

-Make sure nothing's wet
-No metal touching case (screws behind waterblock?)
-Make sure your PSU (especially) isn't wet

That would be my first guess.
