I live in Japan and just bought the 650W version of this power supply.

Japanese power outlets don't have a ground prong, and the PSU came with a ground wire to attach to a ground elsewhere in my apartment. Is this really necessary? I've already been running the PC without it and I've had no issues.

Thank you!

No, it is not required most grounds in the us are directly attached to the neutral in the breaker box. If your case however starts to shock you, you know why.

Is it a good idea to.... that is a different question

Hey guys,

Just picked up two Seasonic PSUs yesterday used from a local recycling guy. He had no cables for them, but I wasnt too worried seeing as Seasonic has earned a rep for being pretty resillient.

Anyways, I got them for $15 a piece, so hard to complain there. I got a X650 KM3 and a X660. I tried to do a modified version of the paperclip test with a pinned wire from an older 24 pin cable I had lying around, and neither of the fans spun. However, I know that Seasonic units don't spin up the fans unless there is load.

Hoping to use one of these units to power up a small server and the other a Zencash node, I tried using a multimeter to test output voltages but didn't see anything. Putting my ear to the units I hear what sounds like some faint coil whine, but nothing out of the ordinary. I obviously don't have the original recipts for these things, not sure if there is anything I can do about an RMA, but any ideas? Is there some sort of "no load" power off protection here? Is it worht me dropping 15 bucks for a 24pin cable so I can try them on spare motherboards?

If you've shorted Pin 5(ATX Pin16 Ps-On) on the 5x2Pin PSU outlet marked M/B with one of Pins 1,2 or 3 (ATX Pins 18,19 or 24 Ground) and not found any current with a multimeter when you turned the PSU on I would suppose the unit is not working.

 

If you do get them going, however, watch out for the different pinout between KM3 and KM X-series PSUs.

 

The M/B and IDE/SATA outlets are the same but the PCI-E and CPU outlets are the opposite way round.

 

On the KM versions the ground pins are opposite to the lug and the 12volt pins are adjacent to the lug on both the 4x2 CPU outlet and the 6x2 PCI-E outlets.

 

On the KM3 versions the 12Volt pins are opposite to the lug and the ground pins are adjacent to the lug on the 4x2 CPU/PCI-E outlets.

 

If you want to make up your own set of cables I did a pinout showing the differences here.

This is good to know. I really want these things to work, or at least one of them, but I have a sinking feeling I know why they ended up with the local recycling guy. Either way, it's fun to go there and I almost allways end up buying something I don't need. He had an H100i barely used in box lat time I was there, and a really nice Asus mobo that turned out to have 12 gigs of ram, a 3770k and a 120mm AIO on it. SOmone literally just gave that away inside a random system. Blows me away every time.

UPDATE: I beleive the X660 works!! Switching around the orientation of the jumper seems to have done the trick. I am having trouble getting accurate readings with a multimeter, but I get a sure sounding "click" with flipping the switch and the fan will even spin momentairlity before shutting off. No such luck from the X650 though, I think she dead.

I think I will buy an X series motherboard cable (18+10 pin) just to test with. Only $15 and a hell of a lot easier than making cables for something that may still be defective.

Curious. Any problems with the X-760 from history? I search and found none.

I dont know. The X series was rated as being one of the legendary in terms of performance and reliability. I think an X660 in one review was able to provide 880W before it shut itself off-and it was STILL WITHIN 80+ Silver standards.


UPDATE: THE 660 is WORKING!!!! The 650 is almost certainly defunct.

I had an EVGA molex cable that fit the X660, so I moved the pins around to match the layout and bam-powered a fan up! Biting the bullet and buying a full set of cables I think. Maybe now that its friend works the 650 will decide it outght to. wheee.gif
