Fried motherboard?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, so I was moving my pc to a different desk yesterday and when I plugged everything back in and went to turn it on the power and reset buttons on the motherboard were flashing and when either pressing the case power button or the power button on the mobo nothing would happen, no fans lights nothing
So I decided to strip and rebuild the whole lot, replacing the cmos battery in the meantime and now when I plug power in the leds on the buttons are solid but when pressed all that happens is the Asus logo on the Southbridge heatsink lights up for a second and then turns off, nothing else
And so basically I'm trying to work out whether I've fried my mobo somehow, or if my psu has had enough and im not really sure how to check either because I don't have a known good psu and have jump started the psu and fans and my pump spin up fine

Not too sure if it's correct in my sig but psu is amacrox freestyle ax 1000ep

That's the first time I've ever heard of that PSU or that PSU brand, and I've been on this forum for about 7½ years, and about 6 of those years have been spent mostly on learning and giving PSU-related advice and information. So, I am only really able to assume or guess that the PSU was somehow unable to handle this little move. I'm guessing it could've been caused by not plugging something in correctly, or perhaps even from a little accidental rough handling.

AmacroX uses FSP as their OEM and the model he has is from 2007 or at least the reviews are from 2007
Its also a quad multi 12v rail unit with 20 amps on each of the 12v rails and 30 amps on both the 5v and 3,3v rails

Most of the capacitors on the secondary side are CapXon on its probably a dead CrapXon capacitor

Oh. Then yeah, the PSU was about to die anyway. I'm surprised it lasted this long!

 

Let me guess: its +12V capacity is 720W or so.

Get a new PSU and throw that ancient FSP unit out
Dont even bother trying to fix it its too old and not all that good even when it was new.

Edit: look at the picture and see how tiny the PCB is

Heh figures, the psu was recommended some years ago by a local pc company when I first started this hobby and run into a spot of bother

Being that it is very likely the psu what would you guys recommend, I was leaning towards towards the corsair cs850m but I'm quite open minded as long as it's modular

What do you need to power? Your current computer could be powered by a good quality-made 550W PSU.

 

Right now, it seems that EVGA's G2 PSUs have the best prices, but I can only go by U.S. prices. What store(s) can you order from?

So I've just got the i7 at 4ghz a 7970 and a swiftech pump and a bunch of case fans, so nothing crazy I guess

I can order from any store that's Australian, usually use pccg though

Oh, sounds good.

 

I found a good PSU at a good price! The 650W EVGA G2:

 

https://www.pccasegear.com/products/35428/evga-supernova-g2-gold-650w-power-supply

 

I forgot that they still have good prices in Australia too. For $10 more, you can get the 750W G2: https://www.pccasegear.com/products/27992/evga-supernova-g2-gold-750w-power-supply

 

These are very nice PSUs.
