Is my power supply a dead?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Today, was the first time I plugged in my power supply. I was testing my water loop for leaks so I did the paper clip way. It was working then I started to flip the I/O on and off so that I could fill the loop without the res going dry. Then it just cut off. Now it will turn on for maybe 2 second then immediately die. Its a Rosewill 630 green series.

Hmm I guess you get what you pay for. I've always built my pc with corsair power supplies but I was doing a budget build so I went the cheap route. I guess I will RMA it since I just received it yesterday. Thank you for the quick response

It's actually a very solid unit... test it with a paperclip before you send it back though.

Yeah I've tested it with paper clip and connected to the the Mobo. It would power on for 3-4 seconds then die then I would have to let it sit for another 10-15 second before it would power back on and would repeat the dying process.

RMA then, maybe ask them to send you a Capsone/Fortress unit for a minimal difference in cost (if you're willing to pay a few more dollars).

any cheap modular one you could recommend? I think I may go that route now since non-modular has so many dang wires. So hard to hide all the cables.

Ask them for a Capstone M unit, they're excellent and hard to beat price/performance wise.

I couldnot tell if you were doing the paper clip test with all cables unplugged.If you do not do it like this you have not isolated the problem to the power supply.If and when I kill a power supply it is when I am hooking up fans with the PC running,do you think this could be when the problem happened? Sure a power supply can die just at the spur of the moment but I like to really figure out what I did wrong.Can I ask what motherboard you are using?

Do you know how many watts I would need to run a i7-860, GTX 670 sc 4gb, and a D5 water pump? Should a Rosewill Hive 550 modular be enough? I don't really want to spend 110 for the Rosewill capstone 650 at the moment but I will if I have to.

I was doing the paper clip test with everything unplugged. The only thing that was plugged in was my D5 water pump. After it died I tried the paper clip test and with the power supply hooked up to my mobo. I'm currently using the MSI-7613.
