    Can I get an RMA for my CPU?

    My desktop cut out 2 weeks ago (it wasn't a power cut, just my desktop cut out) and since then it wont power up. I've been trying a few things to see what the problem is.

    Things I've done:
    - Jump start the PSU by itself (it worked fine)
    - Jump start the PSU whilst running a fan (it worked fine)
    - Jump start the PSU whilst connecting the two 4 pin wires into the motherboard (this causes the PSU to not power on)
    - Connect just the 20+4pin into the motherboard (the motherboards green LED stays on, but when I try to power on the desktop the fans run for half a second before powering down again)
    - Connecting 20+4pin whilst teh GPU isn't connected (powers on for half a second before switching off again)
    - Connecting 24 pin from a DIFFERENT PSU (300W) whilst GPU isn't connected this doesn't even power the desktop on (not surprising but worth a shot)
    - Tried the 650W PSU in a different desktop and it works fine

    Things I believe can't be causing the problem:
    - Power Supply (It works on a different desktop)
    - Mother Board (I had it RMA'ed and they said it works fine)
    - Bad Memory (They tested this during the motherboard RMA)
    - Graphics Card (I removed the graphics card from the motherboard, but it still doesn't power up)

    That leaves just the CPU, right? I bought the CPU from SCAN 6 months ago - Invoice No: 00E1851950

    Can we conclude that the CPU is the cause of this problem and that I should get it RMA'ed?


    My computer hardware on the affected desktop:
    Motherboard: Asus P8Z77 V LE
    CPU: Intel Core i7-3930K
    PSU: OCZ ZS Series 650W
    GPU: Radeon HD 7950
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance 4GB x2
    HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB
    SSD: Intel Cherryville

    I have checked your invoice and its components and not a 3XS System so I have passed this over to the returns team to look into for you
