Yup, check the motherboard for any loose or bulging caps. Check all wires and connections. Check to make sure there is nothing shorting against the board like a misplaced standoff.

The liquid cooling fluid won't be the problem 'cause as you've said, it's non conductive.

I'm going to suggest the CPU as the problem. Do you have a spare?

Back down the OC to default settings to see how it goes.

That has to be either a faulty PSU or motherboard.

You've tried a new PSU so maybe a faulty motherboard?

The thing is your motherboard shouldn't work without the 4 pin PSU power?

It will boot and run without the aux 4 pin power connector. It's there to supply extra current on the 12V rail and provide extra power for the CPU. Many systems will run fine without it. But it's best to have it plugged in.

I'm still thinking there's a short somewhere. If you're up to it, you could remove the motherboard and boot it outside the case to test.

Hey i was running liquid cooling and my pc started turning on and off it would run for almost 2 seconds and shut off and do it over and over again.
Before you start ripping things out, it could be because it's not being cooled properly, are you sure the water block is making good contact with the CPU's IHS?

I had the same problem once when I didn't apply the TIM properly when I reseated my cooler. The system would turn on, the CPU would overheat in two seconds and it would start over in a never ending cycle.
