So yea the PSU is defiantly dead and he purchased a new one. Still left with the same problem though.

Try running the setup outside the case. Remove every USB header cables (as they might cause a short, if the USB ports are f'ed up).

And most of all, you said he has an Mpower Max. That motherboard has a Debug LED code. Before it turns off, read the last value it displays and look it up in the motherboard manual.

It was tested outside of the case and with nothing plugged up except the appropriate PSU cables and cpu+ram installed.

The thing probably doesn't stay powered on for even a full second. Not sure if the debug lcd even displays anything in that time frame but I can ask him.

well, its hard to test oddities.. the fall back is substitution, replace mem, test , replace cpu test
replace mobo test... Wish I had a better idea of the exact cause but it looks like something got fried, I would start with mobo and memory.. goodluck
post #15 of 18
If the result is the same regardless of the CPU being connected or not, I'd bet the problem is the mobo.
If the Ram is faulty the mobo should be able to indicate (either through beeping, or LED's) that it is.
I have never really tried to boot a computer without a CPU, so I don't really know what would happen if the CPU is faulty.
post #16 of 18
well, most mobo will die protecting the cpu, at least thats the idea, there should be a thermal cut out.. unless something screwy went on, like a electric shot to the brain..
I agree, most of my chips if I was betting would be on the mobo, then mem, a distant third the cpu.. now I am really curious whats what here...

If your friend can, ask him to send the new Corsair gs700 back and buy a better PSU. I just went to the site I usually buy stuff from and the top review was:
Quote:
please dont buy this psu.... i bought this from retail shop.... this is nothing but piece of crap.... this particular series or model has a huge prob... it blew within couple of hours in my pc.... so i thought something might be wrong with power supply.. but no... then later on i got it replaced with another gs700.... it too got blown away.... the main thing u need to be concerned is it made toooooo much noise..... cos it works on fanless operations... i.e., fan starts working wen required but its a huge failure...

Well just disregard that review, GS700 has Teapo secondary capacitors.. and 3 years warranty right? there are alternatives of same or little better quality with 5 Years of warranty.

Now about the issue. Same thing happened before it blew up so as everyone said, try with a different Mobo and post back.

sounds like a faulty motherboard to me...assuming you have all the power connectors in the correct places. The manual should tell you which 8-Pin CPU connector to use, and if it still doesn't work, my money is on a faulty motherboard.

 

Also : is it possible your friend is lying? Maybe he's only saying "the problem happened prior to the PSU failure" to avoid looking like an idiot for killing two components.

 

I don't mean that in an offensive way at all, it could happen to any new builder.
