help fix a possibly broken silverstone strider!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok, here's the deal. I wanted to build a external enclosure for a external water cooling loop I am working on and was planning to use a fully modularr PSU to place in this enclosure to power up 18 140mm fans, a fan controller and 2 pumps so I picked a Silverstone Strider locally from someone and it doesn't appear to be working.

Model No. SST-ST60F
(600 watt PSU)

I got home ran tried connecting it soley to 18 Yate Loon fans and it did not work, thought maybe the ATX Cord as to be connected as well so I ran a paper clip between the Green+Black Wires to see if that would work and no luck again. Tried connecting to Motherboard and no luck as well. Have even tried connecting to motherboard using cables from a PSU that is currently powering my system and no luck there as well. In all times I tried connecting it when hitting the power switch on I would hear a buzzing noise as if it was working but it's not. AND YES I AM SURE I FLIPPED THE POWER SWITCH ON THE RIGHT WAY... lol

I don't know the Brand. Never brought any of their products but I seen reviews and people say its a solid PSU. I have contacted seller and he is willing to refund me my money but I would like to believe that there is something incredibly stupid & simple to figure out so that I can get this working.

Anyone with this PSU know how to troubleshoot problems?

Indeed it is a solid unit(Enhance made), you need to open it up and look for failures, maybe take some pics and upload them so we can have a look too..
Is the unit still in warranty?.. if I were you I'd send it back.

I'm not sure if it is still under warranty. There are 2 wholes on one of the sides of the PSU when you look inside there are 3 screw-like switches I remember seeing something on a review that those adjust something but I was too tired to read the review and dont know what they do. lol... Was hoping if I played around with them I can get it to work, anyone knows what they do? I cant seem find where I read that review anymore

I don't plan on opening it as I might just end up returning it.

Are you sure it's the SST-ST60F !?.. first you're talking about flipping the power switch the right way and this PSU does not have a power switch, and then you're talking about two holes in the side of the PSU which again is something this PSU does not have.. check the model number again..

100% positive.. You might be mistaken though as I was while searching for answers. when I searched for this PSU I noticed there are different versions of it. same model # but with a -P or -F at the end. I do not know how different they are from the original but this one for sure has a power switch and 2 holes on the side.

Does it have the modular panel in two colors(blue and black) or all black?

edit.
It's not ST60F nor ST60F-P(and I highly doubt is ST60F-SG) and we're left with ST60F-ES which is an average to poor Sirtec made unit, send it back.
