Corsair HX 1000 short circuit?


Recommended Posts

Hi there,


Had a new build that fired on perfectly. The power cable seemed slightly loose at the PSU end.

So - as dumb as this sounds - I tried wiggling it tighter into the PSU with the PC off but the PSU on 5 sec after turning the PC off and I immediately heard some some crackling and smelled some noise. So I never booted the PC again, every time shutting off quicker. The mobo and fans leds kept turning on, Paperclip test test (with some fans conntected to it) failed.


So just to be sure.. in case.


Did I broke it by wiggling?

Are my other components OK?
