    Update: Tried a second PSU, same thing however it doesn't try again every time, just starts, dies after same amount of time and that's it.

    Will get another mobo tomorrow...

    Thanks all for the help!

    Before you do that I hope you have pulled the CPU and then re-seated it and during the process next power up feel the pump head of that AIO and make sure it seems to be working.

    So far isolation of the:
    - GPU, PSU and RAM have shown symptoms are persisting.

    That leaves the CPU, AIO and mobo.

    Try and isolate the CPU and AIO beforehand if you can.

    Thought I might bump this, got a B85m and she works now.

    I had to jump cmos for it to reach bios, then it randomly blue screened after a few seconds in windows, then on third reboot I plugged headphones in and it rebooted.

    After all this I have plugged in some USB devices and a mic and all seems fine... Hoping it stays that way!
