Possible failed PSU

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi! I recently installed the strike-x panel fan controller and replaced a fan in my case but when I finished installing it the computer would boot for about a second, and shut off. I have tried clearing CMOS and softening the load on my PSU (disconnecting the Graphics card)
I have a 660W PSU, GTX 780, Asus P8Z77-V and two drives. Thanks!

That's kinda weird, something as minor as a fan controller shouldn't cause such an issue. Have you made sure all the fan cables and connections going to the power supply are plugged in securely?

Maybe the fan or fan controller are defective causing a short circuit which would trigger a shut down. Disconnect both and see if the computer starts up.

I had a similar issue with my computer a couple of months ago, turned out to be burnt VRM on motherboard. Have a good sniff around the motherboard (lol) if anything's burnt.

Did you reinstall the cmos battery correctly? How old is the PSU?

I have cleared the CMOS before and it seems to be in correctly, would it matter if it is out of charge? the PSU is nearly 1 year old.
