sum1quiet Posted November 11, 2013 Share Posted November 11, 2013 I've got an AX850 that I bought just under a year ago, and it's currently powering my recently built Haswell system. It has been working fine for a while, but recently I've had a problem where pressing the on button on my PC wouldn't start the machine. To make sure it wasn't the button itself, I tried with the Start button on the motherboard but that didn't work either. I then thought, maybe it's the motherboard, so I disconnected everything and only tried to power the PSU with a paperclip and a fan connected to simulate some load. It powered the fan, but when I took out the paperclip and reconnected it a few seconds later, it would not start again. I needed to wait for about a minute before reconnecting the paperclip to have the PSU power up and power the fan. So, after confirming the power supply worked to a degree, I turned it off and connected up everything and powered on my machine, and it worked! Great, I thought. Ever since that day though, I've had occasional problems turning my PC on in the morning. Most of the time when I press the on button I have to wait a couple of seconds before it starts powering up and today, for example, it just wouldn't start at all so I unplugged it and left it for a while. It started after that. Given the problems I was having when not connected through the motherboard but simply powering a fan and not toggling on and off properly, does this seem like an issue with the PSU? I don't have a spare one to test with at the moment and now is really not a good time to buy another to check with. Would very much appreciate the input of one of the Corsair reps. Thanks.
