  • MSI x99s SLI PLUS system wont power on and CPU upside down??

    The Rosehill Capstone 1000w 80 plus gold PSU came with a big power pin to go into the motherboard plus a 2 x 4 pin that plugs in near the CPU. I plugged the big PSU plug into the mother board but am having a problem with the 2 x 4 pin plug.

    If I do NOT plug in the 2 x 4 pin plug and then power on, the cooling system runs and even the DVD player runs a bit. If I DO plug in the 2 x 4 pin then power on, the motherboard LED's just blink for a second and then it all shuts down - no fans run or anything

    What could be causing this?

    Also the i7 5820k CPU would only plug in upside down into the motherboard. Is this right?
