I built a new sb rig for a friend of mine. We had it up and running, installed windows and everything was good. We were transfering some files between hard drives and he plugged in a turtle beach headset in the front panel. Audio, mic and a usb. Well the computer just shut off and started this re-booting loop where it would power on for less than a second and shut right back off. First thought was we shorted something out. Ive removed the mobo from the case and it still does it, I tried each ram stick, still does it. Different power supply, still does it. So now im down to the mobo or the cpu. The only reason I think it might be the cpu is when I took everything out i noticed that the heatsink wasnt screwed down all the way. Its a noctua d14.... So i thought we may have overheated it and messed something up. Im at a loss here so before I we go trying to rma stuff I want to see if anyone has anymore ideas.
