HX1000w simple test question.

Hi,

I am building a new system and am trying to figure out if my power supply is bad. I try the simple power supply test( did it with 1 fan and also did it with 5 fans attached) and the fans will spin for a second then stop. Is this normal for the HX1000w or should the fans spin up and stay running? I performed this test outside the case with just the PSU and the fans and am not sure if this is normal since the fans and 24 pin connector would be on serperate rails.

 

Regards,

Ok I read the sticky."simple power supply test" means I was shorting the pins, green to black. Hence I take it that the "The fans should spin right up" comment in the test procedure means the case fan that is the load starts spinning and stays spinning. Thus my power supply must have a short or something that tells it that tells it to shut down since the case fan only spins for a second. Now to figure out how to RMA this from an APO address.
