  1. I've put all my parts together and turned the PSU on, but not the PC yet, the fans were spinning for a second but stopped working for a few seconds and then started again, same with the lights on the Motherboard and the GPU - they were just blinking. Then I've turned the pc on, the fans started running normally, but the lights were still blinking. I've already taken it out of the case and built it on a cardboard box, but it was the same. I don't know what to do...
    My specs:
    Intel I-7 6700k
    Gigabyte Geforce GTX 970
    Asus Z170 deluxe
    Corsair H100i GTX CPU watercooler
    Samsung SSD 850
    Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8 GB
    bequiet pure power 630 W
    Corsair Obsidian Series 750D case

    Update: I called a friend of mine and he suspects that the Motherboard might be faulty, causing a short-circuit - what do you guys say?

    Is there a troubleshooting section in the motherboard manual?

    Double check all connections to the motherboard.

    Did keyboard LEDs flash indicating BIOS recognition?
    Did anything appear on display?
    Did you get any 'beeps'? Any kind of pattern?
    Motherboard LED flashing in a pattern?
