Built about a year ago, working great up until this morning, when I woke up and it refused to boot.

LEDs on RAM, GPU (just the power one), and case power button light up and I can hear PSU fan and standard HDD noise, but CPU fan and case fans aren't spinning, no mobo LEDs and remaining GPU LEDs. Nothing displays on monitor.

No beep code.

Where do I need to start with troubleshooting this?

Try clearing CMOS, and see where that gets you.

Holy ****, that actually solved it completely. Immediately booted with no problems whatsoever after shorting the jump with a pair of scissors. Was definitely expecting a multistep process and hold time with Gigabyte customer service.

We had a power outage about 5 days ago, maybe that contributed? It worked up until today though, super odd.

Thanks dude

Hey, sorry to revive this but I'm getting the same symptoms again and clearing CMOS isn't solving it this time. Any other suggestions?

Try reseating the ram. Maybe try clearing the CMOS one more time? (Making sure that the power is off). Unplug it, spam power button to drain residual voltage, clear CMOS again, plug back in.

If none of that works, popup the CPU and cooler. Check the cpu socket for bent pins, or the CPU pins/contacts for thermal paste.

If you don't have a UPS, think about getting one.
