PC won't turn on with RX 580 installed?

Here's my PC specification:


PSU: Corsair RM850x

MB: MSI Z170A Gaming M3

CPU: i5-6600k


GPU#1: MSI 1080 Ti Gaming X

GPU#2: MSI RX 580 8GB Gaming X


The GPU#2 is connected via riser, separated from GPU#1 to keep temps low.


MB BIOS are up-to-date.


Heres what happened:


The GPU#1 were not overclocked, underclocked, or BIOS modded in any way.


The GPU#2 were not overclocked or underclocked. However, it was BIOS modded (the timings, hynix memory, yadda yadda). I also used the AMD "Blockhcain Compute" driver:


I mined using Nicehash, with GPU#1 running Equihash or Lyra2REv2 and GPU#2 running DaggerDecred or DaggerSia most of the time.


Everything was fine. Both temps were about 70 C, fans were about 30%. Mined 24/7 for about 3 weeks.


However, then suddenly my PC died and won't turn on.


Interestingly enough, when I removed both of the GPU, the PC boots up into windows normally. Looks like this:


Plugged in GPU#1, works fine.


However, when I try to plug in GPU#2, either into the upper slot of the motherboard, lower slot of the motherboard, or even using the riser, it turned on for like a split second:


And that's it. It won't turn on. I can't even get into BIOS/UEFI. The RAM is blinking like when it's on standby mode. Everything else does not turn on.


Could you help me? What should I do?
