need help with burning PSU's - Page 2

post #11 of 49
One thing to at least check on a potential power supply is an 80plus certification.
then immediately find a review which can confirm the PSU lives up to that certification.

I must say that Johnny Guru, taught me a lot, as regards choosing PSU's especially where the marketing on the box is concerned as opposed to what is actually in the box smile.gif.

I note that you have some older components too, these are easily more than 4 years old, and if you have been overclocking could be aging ,depending on the setup.
While I am not the most knowledgeable on these things, bad PSU power regulation could cause components to fail sooner.

Hope you get everything sorted out, the advice people give out on the OCN forums is second to none, and I will shut up now so that the geniuses can still fit their heads through their respective doors. smile.gif

He wants a Corsair, so it matches. It's not the best brand, but it's definitely a decent/recommended one.

Another possibility is that you may have damaged your motherboard's VRMs when overclocking and it's causing the system to shutdown. Aside from that, I can't really think of what else would cause your shutdowns.

Johnny Guru and Hardware Secrets are godsends when it comes to deciding what PSU to buy.

Did you short the wires with the 12v connector attached to the motherboard? If the computer actually turned on when the wires where shorted than you probably have a bad power switch or the switch wires aren't hooked up right.

Did you short across the power switch jumpers?

Did you unplug everything not needed to start up from the motherboard? No front panel USB, no hard drives...ect

i have put an extra cable on the green and black psu cables then the psu if attached to mobo works (all the fans are spinning) then i press the on switch and the computer boots.
i have tried disconnecting everything and taking out my video card (the mobo has an integrated card though )

Don't get a Corsair PSU unless you're willing to shell out a good $150 on an AX or HX series. Otherwise, I'd look into the Seasonic G 550, Rosewill Capstone 550 M, or at least an Antec Earthwatts Green 500.

The workaround

Weird. I can't say that I've seen that before. it is like the circuit in your motherboard for the power switch is broken. When the power is active there is some circuit that is active with like 1 miliamp or something that lets the BIOS know to keep the PSU running. If you short this

Are the pins that the green and black wires plug into on the connector socket pushed in or something? Perhaps they are not getting a good connection.

Though...by jumping the PSU to come on you are in essence forcing power into the motherboards capacitors and if some voltage regulator or something was having problems I can see that being a work around. That is just a guess though...I never thought such a thing would be possible.

Very interesting...will it boot and run normally too?

Though I should say that when I "hotwire" a PSU I don't use that ground wire...I use one in the other row and one down as the picture sits...I don't think that should be effecting anything in this case though.

My last build was very similar to OP's with the 3 core Phenom and an older GPU.

Using a multimeter, the most I ever pulled from the wall was like ~290W I think? That was overclocked to 3.5GHz, running Prime95 and Furmark simultaneously.

I would not hesitate to run that rig on a Corsair CX430M. You can get one for 30-35 bucks on sale and they are pretty solid PSU's based on reviews. ESPECIALLY at that price point. It would be a major upgrade from the Sooper-China-Firecracker PSU's he's been using.

i was thinking of buying the TX650 but i guess ill have to get another brand psu because where i buy parts they dont sell the HX series nad AX are from 750w to 860w and i probabbly dont need that kind of power (plus its very expensive)

when i plug in the powercord or flip the on switch on psu all of the things are running ( fans hdd and cd-rom) however it doesnt boot until i press the power switch .
