kipsofthemud Posted August 13, 2013 Share Posted August 13, 2013 Hello, I got my AX860, as a replacement for my not-as efficient Antec Truepower 650w, handed to me by the mailman today and after unpacking all the stuff I decided to install it and hook it all up. I plugged in the power chord to the PSU, flipped the 0 switch to I and suddenly my computer turned on. I'm pretty sure thats not supposed to happen until I press the power button on my 700D...I cannot turn off the computer by using the power button, and the reset button doesnt work either. I've tried disconnecting every component and its cable to try if it was something that was preventing the computer from actually booting. It keeps doing this, but it will not power up all components - as my USB keyboard and mouse (Ducky Shine II & Steelseries Sensei) dont light up, which they always do on power-up. I dont get any video - the screen doesnt come out of standby, but the fans on the GPU spin. The fans in my case and on the CPU-heatsink will start to spin, and I can hear my harddrives spin up. My Fancontroller works, and the LED's on my motherboard also light up. I've breadboarded my set-up but it's still the same problem. I've breadboarded with my old PSU and there is no problem at all. I've even tried it with my older motherboard (MSI P67A-GD53) and it had the same problem. I've put everything back in the case with my old PSU and there's no problem. When I unplug all the cables from the PSU and plug it in a wall-socket and flick the switch to " l " it also spins up the fan (when in "normal" mode instead of "hybrid". So in a nutshell the problem is: Cannot turn off/reset computer with the AX860 installed, and it will turn the computer on as soon as I put the switch to " l " from " 0 " . I dont get any video and few peripherals don't work either. This problem does not occur with my old PSU. I've built many computers but this one is the first one I've built with a Corsair branded Seasonic PSU's, and I'm confident that I have done nothing wrong during the building process, because I even read the 'manual' that came with the PSU _just_ to be sure. My hardware: Gigabyte G1. Sniper 2 2500K 8 gb Crucial Ballistix MSI GTX 680 Twin Frozr III So, anyone got an idea? Is it RMA time? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
