Don't wanna hyjack the thread, but by connecting the green and the black wire from the PSU can I actualy start the PSU without connecting it to the mobo? I always wandered which one are the contact wires

yes, that is how u start the psu without connecting it to the mobo. On some psu's this causes one of the safety things to kick on and the psu can not be started this way. I know this is the case with my psu

haha i tried plugging it into all different jumper prongs on the motherboard, none of them worked. not to mention the fact that i also tried plugging the reset switch into the power switch's prongs. nothing.

im not going to try messing with the hardware all that much. i know i voided the warranty on my cpu by sanding it, but thats something i have experience with (plus LGA 775 = no pins! this time around was much easier as far as cpu sanding goes ). shorting out wires and such just isn't my area of expertise, im not willing to try it unless you've got a walkthrough for me with detailed pictures and instructions. ahaha

plus i already sent the psu back for a replacement. cost me $8.30 ground shipping, which i guess is a small price to pay.

Shorting the PSU is extremely easy. All you need is 3 staples (preferably still glued together). Take a look at your 24 (or 20) atx connector. All of the wires will be colored. To the left of the hook that secures the atx connector to the motherboard you will see a green wire. 3 pins to the right and one pin down you will see a black one. While the psu is not plugged into the wall use the stables to connect these two pins. Then just plug the psu into the wall, and if it is still good it will power on. This is usefull for many things, troubleshooting a dead psu for one, but I also do this when im leak testing my water cooling. I hook everything up first, make sure it boots up and so on, then just unhook my computers psu from the wall, hook the watercooling unit to an old psu I have, and then leaktest.

haha nahh its okay... i already shipped it back for a replacement. newegg is really good about its service and RMA's. they might even replace a lapped cpu if they're in a good mood haha.
