Bitfenix Alchemy led strip short circuit!!!! D:

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I'm at a big lan, and one of my Bitfenix Alchemy led strips unstuck from the roof of my case. As I was trying to push it back into place, it became partially unplugged, and then my computer shut off. I can't get it to reboot. There is still a light on my motherboard though. This is my first experience with a short circuit, any advice? Do you think I killed my PSU and other components?
Btw, psu is a Silverstone Strider 650w.

Try unplugging the PSU, waiting a few minutes then plugging it in again. Maybe some overload protection circuitry requires you to remove and reapply power before it will work again. smile.gif

Well, I unplugged the psu and tested it using a power supply tester. It worked fine. It won't power on any of my computer components though. The LED's were plugged directly into the psu, I don't understand how it could damage my other components without damaging the psu.

O and I noticed in my first post I said bitfenix alchemy cables. I meant LED strips.

Ended up buying a new motherboard. I was using white bitfenix LEDs. I think what happened was that I had my Gelid pwm splitter cable powered off the same molex as the led strip (led comes with a pass through) and when the strip shorted the current was passed through the splitter cable into the pwm header. Maybe that's not what actually happened but its my best explanation.

Hello guys! I also got Bitfenix Alchemy cables, but I have question. The 24pin wount fully plug, it's goes, but very hard. My PSU is Chieftec CTG-650C.
It's almost connected, there is probability of PSU break?
Thanks.
