Just to add up since you maybe stripping your system make sure you avoid electromagnetic discharge. Ground yourself well and a quick way is to just touch the back of the psu before you touch other components and make sure the remaiming power from capacitors are also discharged. When you unplug the psu a residual power is kept by the capacitors so just hit the power button again and your cpu fan may turn a bit and stop. An indicator that all power are discharged is that the power good led on the board is turned off, it is usually the green led that is lit once you have power on the motherboard. Hope this help and good luck with the troubleshooting.
