Does it support this motherboard?


Abit IS7-E


Green LED on motherboard is on, when i hit the power switch the red one flashes for a second and then nothing happens, green is back on again.



Didn't find a motherboard support list anywhere.


Thank you

You would need to make sure that the motherboard supports ATX 12v 2.0 or later PSUs. I would recommend that you try the PSU functionality test: http://www.asktheramguy.com/v3/showthread.php?t=63991. If the PSU powers on and stays on, then there is a possibility that your system is triggering the OCP/OVP (overcurrent and overvoltage protection) circuits on the PSU due to an out of spec signal from the motherboard. If this is the case then I would recommend testing the PSU in a different system to be sure. If the PSU is still not powering on properly then let us know and we will be happy to replace it!
