Strange problem AX860 vs Intel 320 SSD


Recommended Posts

I just installed a 7990 and AX860 PSU, and when I tried to start up the computer, it powered on for 1 second and then turned off. After spending some time troubleshooting, I found out of, that if there was power on my Intel 320 SSD, then the computer refused to start. As soon as I removed the power from the SSD everything started without any problems. The same applies regardless of whether or not the SATA cable is in, or if I use another cord / pot to power the SSD. It worked without problems on my old Seasonic S12-600W and otherwise same setup. Pretty weird?


The only thing I can imagine is that Intel's power-loss technology on the SSD for some reason is not compatible with the PSU. Does that sound like the most reasonable explanation or does anyone have a better offer?


Fortunately, it is now only my secondary SSD, but it would be nice if it worked.


An suggestions on how to fix it, would be greatly appreciated. :-)
