Haven't done either. I'll take a gander.

Doubt it. I have Corsair CX430m powering the APU, board, cpu fan, and a single ssd. It's a very low power use system.

CPU Blown?

I have an AMD APU in my HTPC. We were using it the other day and it just died. Flash on the tv and now it won't do anything. I've eliminated any cable issue by re seating each cable (power cables all over and sata to SSD). I've re seated the ram. I removed the hard drive and verified it's working correctly, did chkdsk on another windows PC. Nothing. Every time I press the start button the fans for the PSU and CPU run, but I can't even get to post. I hook up a usb keyboard and press delete and F9 which in the past would put me in bios, but I can't even get that far. I thought about re seating the CPU, but I don't have any paste and am trying not to buy a whole tube when you need barely 1/8th a tube for a single CPU. My next thought is to try each ram stick individually just to verify.

Does anyone have any better ideas?
