The connection on the motherboard will be the same in all likelihood, once they get tarnished they tend to degrade, try to clean it with Ipa , contact cleaner and if possible a fibre brush but definitely check it out.It's definitely not GPU since i've unplugged it while i was debugging, it didn't change anything.
I've been logging all the temperatures and voltages via HWINFO before the last crash. But i can't get the log file since it's not booting. I don't think it's a chipset temperature because it was fine when i first started searching for a problem.
It actually doesn't. It mentions QLEDs (which are a set of debug BOOT, DRAM, CPU, VGA LEDs that light up (or don't, in my case) while the PC boots) and a 8pin LED which is off. It doesn't say anything about the LED near chipset or why would IO cover light up with red even if it's set to turn the LEDs off while PC is off.
I'm now 99% positive it's a PSU.
First of all: i've reassembled my PC on my desk as an open stand, used my old rusty 650W PSU that make strange noises while it works and it allowed me to encode for 30 minutes straight, that's when i got impatient.
I've hooked up my default PSU and PC didn't boot. It got stuck at DRAM QLED and i've tried 3 times. I've tried my old PSU again for sanity check and it worked. It also works right now while i make that post.
Another thing, and that's where i leave my other 1%: i'm using Thermaltake Sleeved Extension cables for all motherboard and GPU connections. The one that was going to 8 pin CPU is burnt. Plastic melted in some places. I suppose that's why i wasn't getting any QLEDs while 8 pin was hooked through it. When i got rid of it, i got at least DRAM QLED from my default PSU. Anyway, that means that both the extension cable and default PSU are now dead. I'm going to get a proper platinum Corsair PSU tomorrow and i'm not going to try my luck with more tests on old PSU.
Now, the only question is if there's any damage that burnt 8 pin cable did that i still don't know about... All the other extension cables are fine, but i think i'll get rid of all of them (the remaining 24PIN) except the GPU ones.
Thank you everyone!
This is likely what actually killed the psu since once the grounds start going bad one effect is it will push up in rush current values as well as typical current load on the PSU.
Check your 24pin main atx connections for tarnishing of the pins and try to clean up or remove any tarnishing or charing, could also be worth checking out other components to make sure they are not drawing too much power since one of these could also have contributed.
