Cooler Master Silent Pro Hybrid 850W 80+ Gold, not compatible with my Z77 motherboard?? 2 RMA's with Cooler Master, both units fail, including original unit.

My power supply from Cooler Master is defective or not compatible with my motherboard? I bought one from Newegg, that one didn't work, RMA'd it, that unit had the same problem, second RMA, this unit had the same problem at the first two power supply units I received. I can jump start the power supply by putting a paper clip in the green and black wires of the 24 pin cord and it turns on, but once I install it into my PC with all the wiring, it powers on. But once I turn it off, the unit doesn't power on anymore, but instead the LED's from the motherboard flicker on, then die. So I switch the power supply switch to OFF, then unplug the power cord, then replug it, turn the power supply switch to ON, then I instantly see my motherboard LED's flicker on, then die off. PC won't boot up because of this power supply. What's the matter here? Cooler Master will not give me a refund and I can't get a refund from Newegg because I took off the UPC code for a rebate. Now the RMA department from Cooler Master is saying that my motherboard is defective or that I didn't install the unit in correctly, which I did! Anybody have an idea why this PSU isn't working for me?! 2 RMA's and 3 months later, still have a $140 useless power supply unit, oh and to mention that it's been almost 3 months and I still don't have my $40 rebate! mad.gif

As of right now, I bought a cheap Thermaltake Black Widow TR2 850W and have it installed and everything works perfectly FINE. Here's the unit: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817153106

I doubt it's the PSU, you might wanna check your mobo. Most of the EVGA boards aren't that great, maybe if they had a better bios, then yeah, but definitely it be your mobo.thumb.gif

How can I check my mobo? I flashed the BIOS to the most recent one and so far everything works fine. It's just that damn Power supply unit.

I'd honestly RMA your mobo instead. Not sure how you can even update if it's not even power'n up. My only assumption is you probably can get into the UEFI menu, but other than that it'll become unstable right? I'd rma your board, there's not much good reviews for that board in particular, though I do love EVGA products, their mobos aren't that great.

I purchased another power supply unit and have it installed and everything works fine. I am even OC'd to 4.7GHz and my RAM is running at 2133MHz, lol.

The thing is, I can jump start the cooler master power supply and it will start, but it starts at under 200W, so the fans do not spin. Which is why there is a fan controller, and it is also the power regulator that allows you to turn it up and produce more power. I set the controller to MANUAL and put the speed to maximum, press the power button, and it still will not power on my PC. confused.gif
