Default CX600 stops working, power-ups-briefly issue

I have been using my CX600 on my Asus P7P55D-E LX mobo since 2011. Last night my PC just died. It's the usual "power-ups-briefly" issue, like in my case it's shorter - 1 or 2 seconds.

So I did the paper clip test but I didn't remove PSU from the case. I did remove most of the pins though, especially the ones in mobo. Nothing.

The stand-by LED in my mobo still lights up so I'm sure there's still power.

What's weird though is that when I move the 24-pin plug, it powers up a lil longer, 3-4 or even 5 seconds but dies again.

I will call Corsair tom but I will appreciate if anyone could give me some insights on my predicament. Could it be the mobo this time since there's still the "brief power up" moment or is this a classic PSU retirement symptoms?

If you do the paper clip test, you should unplug everything from the PSU except for maybe one fan. Because that the PSU is plugged into could be bad and causing the short circuit protection to latch the PSU off.

I've extracted it already and tested it with one fan attached. It's the same brief power-on behavior. This could be a mobo then. Thanks for the suggestion.
