So I am doing a new build and PSU passes paperclip test but when I try to test the motherboard nothing happens. No fans, lights or anything. The light in the GPU turns on but that’s it. I am fairly new to all this. I took everything out and am now just testing the mobo and the psu alone. PSU turns on during paperclip test but when I plug it all into the mobo and touch the power pins with a screwdriver nothing happens. Any advice would be appreciated. I’m really hoping I’m just missing something and it’s not a doa.
