how to check my psu

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a bfg 650 that i wanna see if it works to use it. I'm slowly getting the parts for a new build and saving on a psu I could focus that cash on something else .....my old motherboard caught fire and I dunno if it was just the motherboards time to die(HP a1710n) or if the psu had anything to do with it ... i was thinking about hooking it up to the new mobo but i don't wanna fry it ...basically how can i test the psu

However to be 100% it won't fry your new board, you might want to invest in a diagnostics tool or something of the kind.
