hi, i built a gaming pc a year ago with a basic rog strix b550 mobo. just the cpu was liquid cooled with an enermax aio 360mm. in the last 2 months i decided to upgrade to a full custom loop with EK everything. i also doubled the ram cap and added a sound card... after filling the loop, i am trying to get all the components to turn on (whole system boot); but i am not sure why it will not boot. granted the mobo is more sophisticated and i have added more to the system. my sound card will not power up. i can connect the cpu and the system starts; but when i plug the gpu (2xpin PCIE) in to the psu then the system will not boot. maybe i am over thinking it or is simple enough to not consider? wht am i forgetting about? and do i have enough power (1000w) to supply all components?
