bad 24pin connector? how can i replace?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
so my computert has been turning off randomly and to turn it back on i have to touch the wires on the 24pin connector. I think this is because the wires inside the 24pin connector arent touching the metal on the 24pins well enough and touching it gives it enough connection to turn back on. I've tried unplugging and plugging it back in a few times but that didnt seem to help. since my psu isnt modular, what do i do?

ummmm you could get a new psu.
good excuse to upgrade.
try using something to tighten the connectors to make them have a better connection.

frozenCPU carries the physical connectors and the pins for the wire. I had to replace a pin once. Pain in the butt.
