Corsair 650TX not working?

Recommended Posts

I bought a brand new system (my first custom build) from Newegg.com today, including the Corsair 650TX. I put it together and tried to power up today. Nothing happened, it didn't turn on. I double checked ALL the connections and tried again. No joy. I notice that when I press the power button, the PSU fan twitches a bit, and then it goes back to doing nothing.

 

Any ideas? Is there a way to test if it's a dud? Thanks in advance.

You can easily test a power supply for functionality with a simple paperclip. First, disconnect all the cables from your motherboard and other devices, but leave the power supply plugged into the wall. Next, bend the paperclip until you have a U shape. Find the 24-pin ATX connector and plug one part of the paperclip into the socket where the green wire ends, and the other end into the socket where a black wire ends. Make sure the power switch on the back of the PSU is on, (should be the I symbol) and the fan should spin up. If it doesn’t or doesn't stay on, your power supply may be bad.
