ax860i not working, power supply clicks when M/B is discharged and try to turn on

I switched on my computer this morning to sync a few folder between my desktop and my laptop and then headed to school. I got back from school to discover that my desktop would no longer switch on. I opened up the case, and the motherboard LEDs were on but very dim, for example my reset button on my motherboard was dimly lit but my start button on the M/B was not. Same goes for the other LEDs on the board. I decided i would unplug the power supply and discharge my M/B and try again. When i tried to startup again my CPU cooler and other fans spun up for about half a second before my PSU made that clicking noise that you get also from self testing before a complete power out with no LEDs anywhere.

 

When I discharge again and try again the M/B Leds light up but then turn off again after the clicking noise. I'm going to take it back to the retailer considering I only bought it 3 months ago but I wanted to see if anyone had any ideas first. There has been no prior problems with the PSU and it is connected to the h100i though corsair link if that has any use.

 

Thank you

Oliver

Thanks for your view Jonny, I fear you may be right the PSU produces a perfect self test fan spinning green LED on. When just ATX power plugged in it trips the PSU. Will have to disassemble the whole computer now because of the radiator etc blocking it in. One question. When I return the motherboard to asus will I need to return it with all the materials and cables such as the Sata cables? I already know i must put the CPU socket guard back in.

Can't say for sure. I know in the past when I returned just a board, I got just a board back. But that was a while ago.
