So, is it fried or what? :( - Page 3

post #21 of 29
Do the fans spin up at all when you press the power button? I have had mobo shorts before and the fans would start up and then turn off. Disconnect all power to the motherboard and try plugging your fans only into the psu.... jump start the psu using the paper clip method. If they dont turn on, its most likely a dead psu

Yes I did, why?

Yeah, it's a dead PSU, I have to get a new one, most likely a Antec or Corsair.

I would suggest the Antec Neo Eco 620C for a PSU, I powered two 5870 E6's at 1Ghz, 4.5GHz CPU with that thing. It's a great PSU, pretty cheap too, they can be found for $50.

Please, before turning your computer on with your new psu, make sure to:

1. Check if all standoffs are correct. An extra standoff/ standoff in wrong place can result in your motherboard frying.

2. make sure the 8 pin cpu and 24 mobo power connectors are in place

I've heard of instances where these have happened.

^ I agree with this. This is the one of the most important things to do before powering up a computer that had ANY kind of short or fried circuit. If there is a extra standoff or a short on the back of the motherboard and you plug in your new psu it will fry something again. Please be sure you atleast take your motherboard out of the case and count how many standoffs are there then count the screw holes in the motherboard. THen make sure they line up properly.


Also, what kind of fan was it that had the wire fry. I find it kind of strange that it was plugged into a motherboard header and fried due to a faulty psu. It is definately possible, but I just want to make sure we eliminate all other potential problems.

If you were using a high powered fan it is very possible that it would short out the header. Those motherboard headers are only rated for so many amps.

Also, was it just one fan plugged into the header, or multiple fans using a wire split?
