And yup the CPU power cable is connected and have also tried two separate PSU cables to the graphics card.

Good... narrow it down, that is the way to go....

Both the GTX 760 and R9 270X are heavily factory overclocked versions "EVGA Superclocked" and "SAPPHIRE Overclocked and Boost Edition" respectively. Where as my old GTX 690, which is at stock speeds, seemed to work fine. Think we might be on to something!... Is there an easy way to temporarily reverse factory overclocked settings to test?

I honestly don't know...especially on the AMD stuff....

Maybe its not getting enough power?

Hmmm.... you have NEVER seen it spinning? I would test for a bad fan... lol! Or turn off that Zero RPM stuff. I would rather have some airflow even at low loads. PSU's can overheat.. and cause all sorts of issues...
