BlueBomber Posted May 27, 2009 Share Posted May 27, 2009 Hey everybody - I was beginning to assemble my new Core i7 build last night. I pulled out my brand new Corsair 620HX Modular PSU, and saw that one of the pins from the 24-pin ATX connector was detached from the white plastic end piece (the actual piece that connects to the motherboard)! The specific wire that is detached is the orange pin in the corner of the connector (I believe the +3 volts pin), which is directly adjacent to the ground pin in the other corner. I fit the wire back in to its appropriate place, but it is very loose, and easily pulls out. I decided to go ahead and continue to assemble the PC, and everything powered up successfully. The PSU seems to be working just fine, however I don’t know if this is something I should be worried about. I guess my primary concern is what would happen if this wire becomes detached while the PSU is running. Will it potentially fry the mobo or short out anything and cause damage to my other components if it eventually slips out? Is there a way to secure the pin back in to the connector? Should I send this item back as defective to Corsair? It was purchased through Newegg with a rebate, which has already been submitted to Corsair, so Newegg will no longer accept any returns on the item. Any help/advice is appreciated. Thanks guys!
