Dead Corsair HX1000?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
A few days ago I moved my desk to be able to clean my room, and today I moved it back. I've taken my computer to tons of lans and moved it a lot, but apparently it couldn't handle being moved one meter today. I've tried starting it with the paper clip trick, but nothing, completely dead. I tried checking if it was the PSU cable by using it on another Corsair PSU I've got, and it started without problems. Also tried using the same paper clip on that PSU, which started the fan. I've no idea how it died, but hopefully the warranty hasn't run out.

Try hooking up a fan to it, it may require some minimal load to start.

Bought it in 2010, so shouldn't be a problem RMAing it I think.

Just a little rant, but I've had nothing but issues with that specific PSU.

Went through three different units through RMA. All ended up failing within 3 months. Corsair finally ended up sending me an HX1050 on the fourth RMA and it's been working ever since.

Hopefully they do the same for you so you can avoid any potential future headaches.

They dont make the HX1000 anymore so they will most likely give you a HX1050 if they have any of those left
