Chances are your mobo is gone... just try it with a different PSU and if it does the same then you need to return the mobo.

All I need to do is plugin the 24 pin right?
Do I need to remove the psu from the other system? It's pretty ****y inside of it, removing the psu would be grand -_-

The cables will reach my mobo though

24-pin and 4-pin or 8-pin cable (whichever your older PSU uses).

Re-check the power cable going to your video card and make sure it's plugged in all the way.

I do not follow the logic that if booting from onboard graphics is good the power supply is good.Onboard is limited to a set value through the PCIe slot and discrete needs the cable(s).Perhaps all is off the same rail but I never used this logic before as I was thinking onboard was not off the discrete gpu rail.

EDIT: It would be good to postively identify just what cable was hooked up that started this entire situation.A "six hole with only 5 used" does sound like a SATA (if we are looking at the power supply side of a modular cable).Was it correct to plug a SATA power cable into the device in question.Even if this was the correct cable is the receptacle keyed (at your device,not the power supply,100% it is keyed at the power supply)to maintain polarity? Reversing this cable will cause issues,hopefully issues that the power supply can protect its self from.

There is the 24 pin and then a 4 pin connected under ATX_CPU. On the prebuilt
But I cannot find a 4pin on my mobo, just an 8pin under JPPWR
