dead rivebe, dead cpu or dead gpu?

Hey guys, was doing a few bench runs a minute ago and then my rig just shut down and wont turn back on, the lights on the RIVE Black are on, but when i hit the start button, nothing happens. If i unplug the psu cable till the lights go off then turn it back on, the system will start for half a second then shut itself down again and wont turn on till i repeat that process. So far nothing is working.

System specs are

i7 4930k
rampage iv black
evga 780ti classified
evga 1000w psu


need to know whats going on here, ive been trying to figure it out but so far nothing is working. I tried a different gpu in the system but it still does the same thing so i dont think its the gpu, leaving it to the cpu or mobo.

any help is appreciated.

Have you cleared CMOS using the clear CMOS button in the I/O panel? or removing all power and the battery for a couple of hours if that fails....

figured out the problem, its the PSU, it went boom lol. Took a psu out of another rig and plugged everything in, works like a charm, another three rigs in my house with 100% working psus will not turn on when the dead psu is plugged in, so there we go lol. glad i dont have to tear everything down and start trouble shooting the cpu and mobo with other rigs here.

Try with a different PSU

ordered an evga 1000w P2 to replace it from amazon while i wait for the rma to go through, when i get the rma replacement in 5 or so days since holiday shipping with evga will go slow, ill return the "borrowed" psu to amazon so i can get to benching again on monday. i gotta break 14k on firestrike single gpu 😛 13949 so far, was trying to break it when the psu fried itself lol.

heres a quick video of what was happening before i figured out it was the psu, sorry for the terrible lighting but you get the idea.

Don't think that is very cool at all.
