    Oh... I thought you said it was a Thermaltake and you replaced it with a PC Power...

    *sigh*

    Ok... Back on track....

    How did you troubleshoot it? Was it just the PSU, mobo, CPU and CPU cooler and no other components when you turned it on and almost nothing happened?

    replaced the psu just now, tried some different ram, but it worked with the ram i had in it before. asus sent me another systemboard, and as i stated, looks like a couple of pins bent. sent intel some pictures and info....its either the cpu or systembord...could be the couple bent pins is causing issue maybe....alll the wiring for the case is ok.

    On what part of the motherboard are the pins bent? and why are you sending Intel pictures?

    If you damaged the CPU you will need to buy a replacement.

    i made mistake by being honest with intel, told them i connected the 8pin connector with psu on..no warranty....the system board (tuf z370 gaming plus asus) had 2 bent pins, trying to get in touch with asus, they are hard to get ahold off..phones done work, etc......intel told me to send pics in

    Bent pins usually mean no warranty for motherboard and can cause problems as you described, so if you are lucky, your hw might still be ok. I would suggest you find a local guy/shop who knows his stuff and get those pins fixed (I would also advise against trying to fix it yourself, because they are quite delicate and fragile) and retest your hardware afterwards. If you still want/need to send your motherboard in for warranty then its best not to mention bent pins and/or PSU on, plug 8pin connector after situation

    You didn't made a mistake, you just don't have any warranty if you kill the components yourself.

    Why do you say that? wasn't it doing fine till the mistake? We all make mistakes, the trick is to fix it and move on.

    You said they were bent, now they are not?

    Are you sure there are supposed to be pins there in the first place?
