PC randomly shuts down till I wiggle 24pin Connector

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey there i've got this problem since I bought a new Mobo + CPU combo. ( Gigabyte Z170X-UD3 + i5 6600k ). My PC shuts down randomly, it can be while idle and it can be while playing games and it can be every 30 minutes and some days it will stay on till I shut down. But the thing is whenever my PC randomly shuts down, it won't turn on till I wiggle the 24 pin mobo connector and then it starts back as usual. Any help with this would be much appreciated, thank you.

Pay no attention to specs written in sig it's outdated.

sounds lie a bad ground. check the pins of the 24 pin...paying close attention to the green (near the middle) and the multiple black wires. without a ground signal between the green and the black (any of them...all common), your psu will shut down.
