Defective Ax860

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I bought a OEM Ax860 months ago without any cables i recently got some sleeved ones and rebuilt my workstation that is using a asus rampage 4 gene, the board has been working with my Ax750 but when i used this one i get a 00 error code, ive tried everything from pulling cmos battery, reflashing bios, checking my connections. ive tried everything other than a different PSU
Could my AX860 be defective??

Buying anything used has an inherent risk factor.. especially if you don't test it right away. If you know how to use a multi-meter, there are a lot of good tutorials on testing power supplies on the web.

Are the cables you got Corsair cables? Make sure the cables are correct, and test the power supply.

Didn't you state above, that the board was working with the other power supply? So hook up the other power supply, and see if it works. If so, then it is probably a bad PSU... as long you are positive all cables and all connections are good.

It looks like not all Corsair cables will work on all Corsair PSU... check this out: http://www.corsair.com/~/media/Corsair/download-files/manuals/PSU_Sleeved_Compatibility_Matrix2.pdf

If you decide to test the PSU.. here are the specs you will need:

Tested psu with diffrent mobo and it boots up,tested mobo with a 1200w cooler master power supply and i get the same error code so its not the Ax860 causing the problem

Cool... at least you got it narrowed down!

Strip down the mobo to minimum... try it then? Maybe try different ram if you have some?
