It sucks to be in this situation but can you guys confirm if this PSU is really dead or not?

Symptoms:

-Doesnt power up the green light on Mobo.
-Fan doesnt spin on paperclip test.
-Laugh's at me with hate.

PS. I swapped it with a backup 500w PSU and the motherboard lit up like a christmas tree.

Thoughts?

If it doesn't power up using paper clip, it's probably gone. But, there are a few things that I would try just for kicks. Try loading one of the molex plugs while jumpered... ie, plug a fan or two in or use a CD drive, or spare HDD. You should also look closely at the main 24 connector to make sure there are no loose wires, and all are firmly seated in connector. Good Luck

Sorry to hear that. Return it DOA, should be easy.
