So I just moved my PC into a new case h440. Whenever I try to start it up the PC will turn on for a few seconds and then shut off. It will then repeat this until I turn the power supply off. So I went try to make sure everything was hooked up correctly and I didn't miss anything. I even went as far as unplugging all of the cables and hooking them back up. If I hold down the power button the computer will stay on but will not post. The last thing I tried was removing the mother board battery and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Is there anything else I can try? And does this sound like I may have damaged something?

I would remove the motherboard from the case, recheck every connection, put only one DIMM and run the MoBo . If it runs, then something with the case is happening, like grounding.

Sounds like the board is short circuiting so i agree remove the board from the case and try and boot it outside.

I had something similar happen when I built my current rig. Try unplugging the power and reset connector and starting the rig without them connected. In my case (no pun intended), it turned out I had the power connector plugged in backwards.

Or could be that your board is touching the metal of your case some where. Check you mobo standoffs. My very first build I ran into this problem.

Turned out I needed the motherboard standoffs.....I didn't know what those things were at time....and screwed the motherboard directly to the chassis.....Luckily the board was smarter than me and shutdown and rebooted every time I pressed power. Awwww......good times.

Ok so I tried this and I kept the cpu aio connected and it still does the same thing. Should I try this without the cpu aio? I don't have any other cooler if I do so that's why I left it plugged in

I did try this. My motherboard has a power button on the board so disconnected the case plugs and it still did the same thing.

I don't think the AIO cooler is the culprit, looks like an issue with the PSU, recheck connections on both PSU ends and remove the GPU just to check if it still loops. Also clear the CMOS...and beware of ESD !

Ok so I tried without the gpu and checked connections. Same thing. I went one step further and tried one of my other psu and it didn't help.

Then its either RAM or the motherboard itself.

Have you cleared CMOS ? Maybe your MoBo is doing something wrong with the power supply. As Shilka suggested try other DIMMs. Also make sure your cooling system is working properly (reseat it), could it be overheat shutdown? If nothing works, time to RMA..

Tried the other ram sticks, and tried resetting cmos a few times. Sadly still nothing. And I tried reseating the country cooler. Does seem to be it either. So time to call up MSI and get a new board? ?

Too bad, at least you tried everything you could. Good luck on the RMA.

Well I'll have to wait until Monday because it seems MSI doesn't work on the weekends. ?

They really lost points with me because of that.
