Little bit of trouble with my PSU today...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Seems my Silverstone ST45SF-G decided it didn't want to run... Practically brand new power supply... Ran great for about 2 months or so now ( my computer only goes down to do a bit of maintenance and cleaning once a month or so ). All of a sudden today I wake up, and after about 15 minutes of browsing the internet and steams summer sale it just turns off. No surge or power issues as far as I could tell at the time, even so it is on a UPS and shouldn't have been too greatly affected by one.

Motherboard on-board LED lights up, but there's no life when the power button is pushed. Tried jumping it with a paper clip on the green and black wires, nothing.

Pulled my motherboard out of my SG05 and put it into my FT02 ( P8Z77-I Deluxe in an FT02, just lulz ) with my old HX750 and everything's working right now. So I definitely know the motherboard isn't the issue.



I'm guessing it's dead, maybe someone with a bit more knowledge might have an idea though, if not I'll likely be RMA'ing it come Monday since I'm not likely to get a reply today and post office is closed today any ways... Just figured I'd ask the more knowledgeable since I can't do anything with it yet and someone might have an idea...

Yea sounds like its dead. Just RMA it to Silverstone. They are pretty quick with their RMAs.

I've seen a few PSUs with bad solder, either cracked from rough handling (usually around the heaviest components, like the transformer) or caused by improper temprature or cleaning at the factory (2 ground wires pulled out of the circuit board and were attached to it only with burnt rosin, not with solder). I also saw a nut fall out that had been holding a transistor or diode to a big heatsink, and I once managed to bring a PSU identical to an Antec SmartPower back to life by prying or trimming most of the wire leads, probably because some were shorted to the circuit board.
