GS800 passes the paper clip test but doesn't powe my system


Recommended Posts

I was using a Corsair GS800 PSU. My computer suddenly stopped starting. First I thought it may be a motherboard issue, and checked it with a different power supply and it worked fine. I tried the paperclip test as suggested by the forum members ([ame]

P.S. The power supply still have 2 years and 6 months of warranty remaining.
