Did my psu die?? Need help urgent!! - Page 2

post #11 of 35
i'm convinced the paper clip test is accurate.

if everything looks proper, no idea why the PSU gave up the ghost.

is it still under warranty? but since the 1080ti uses ~80 watts(?) more than 1070, maybe think of 650 watts for reasons.

Sounds exactly like an overheating issue. Maybe the CPU? Can you verify that no LED lights are on, like the BIOS 2 character LED code on the mobo? If you can verify somehow that no power is being transmitted to the computer that would be great. And second, you would indeed smell something burning from the PSU if it died, in most cases. I never heard of a case when the PSU failed on someone and they didn't smell something burning. You might want to check the contact of your heat sink to the CPU. When something is related to overheating and you haven't done anything special mods to your computer, it is most likely the CPU because you literally place the heat sink on it yourself. Thus, check the contact of the heat sink to the CPU, and make sure the CPU fan is working.

One last or first thing you should try is let your computer COOL DOWN. Then see if it boots up. And I like the idea of doing a power reset; you unplug the everything from the PC where it can potentially draw power from. You wait maybe 30 seconds and then plug everything back in. I had to do this recently with a Asus 144hz monitor because it didn't like sleep mode or one of its capacitors maybe died out.

Edit: Ya, it would be insane if the PSU just gave up like that. And i second the idea of getting a 650W.

The paperclip test doesn't work on modern PSUs (like yours) with temperature-controlled fans.

My free diagnosis:

Your motherboard is a toasty wafer. As someone who uses MSI motherboards, I give you this word of advice: Never buy an MSI motherboard of lesser quality than an M5. They just die. Just like yours. Dead. skull.gif ASUS has higher quality boards for the same or less $$$.

Just my 2cents.gif. I could be wrong...

Ya, I usually stick with Asus. However, about 1 year ago from now, I bought a Gigabyte-- the gaming 7 one, because it had the highest review count on newegg, and 6700k compatible motherboards were still in the "consumer testing" phase. I decide to gamble on Gigabyte. Didn't turn out well for me... just read the complaints about the unstable issues with xmp and lack of support they provide. Basically, their bios updates suck. They are helping a lot of people, but the other half either don't realize they have an unstable system or can't fix it. That's just pure speculation, but I'm all for Asus and Asrock, because they are notorious for great quality boards. Asus ROG is a great start. Hope you get ur chit working, op!

the seasonic G series has a silent mode for loads < 50% however it does not have a fanless mode that the X series has (s2FC vs s3FC, w/switch on the unit as usual).

so the fan should still spin.

Hmmmm. thinking.gif Does it have an internal breaker and reset button?

Use a voltage meter if you have one and test the red and yellow lines when you do the paperclip trick. The fan might not kick in like others have said.

Okay so i replugged everything in again and again no power at all. No leds from motherboard also. Completely dead.dont think it was overheating because i was monitoring the temps when playinf battlefield 1 and it was at 70c and all of a sudden shutdown. I purchased a new psu on amazon and its coming today(thank god for Same day shipping) and will update you guys today asap. Im hoping its the psu. If not can it be a dead mobo?

You can always sell the 1080Ti and buy a whole new PC for it's cost if it comes down to it.
You can test PSU disconnected, alone and measure it's output. That should tell you if it will even start at all.
Otherwise yeah who knows how much the 1080Ti is pulling on PCIe slot, the mobo might have said screw this and caved in. Or you have a lose connection somewhere, cables, GPU not all the way in the slot, etc.
I thought I had GPU installed once right too, everything clicked in and screwed, nope, it still had a way to go down into the slot after being clicked in... So recheck your connections everywhere and that you are using the correct cables and ports.

same day delivery of a PSU on a sunday? smile.gif

though if so it might have came before now but . .

while you're at it, you might as well pull the mobo out and inspect it for burned stuff sniff test or whatever. then keep it out and put it on a non conductive surface to bread board it in case you have to trouble shoot potential problems. so yeah leave on the heatsink/cpu and ram. that AMD platform in your sig rig is still what you're using? need a gpu on that and also reuse that paper clip to short the power pins to boot up/beep.
