    Default Old Build New PSU ?

    Old PSU's fan was getting noisy so I bought a new OCZ 600 watt to replace. The EP45-UD3R system was running fine when I shut it down. I removed and replaced the PSU. Powered system on and nothing happened. Tested the PSU with a paperclip and appeared to be working fine. Removed all connections except for the 8 & 24 connections. Still nothing. Removed battery and cleared CMOS. Still nothing. I replaced the old PSU but that didn't work either. (Tried the paperclip test on the old one and it didn't work so maybe it's now bad ...) Re-attached new PSU; still nothing. System worked fine before I put in the new PSU. Ideas ?

    So if you test the PSU separately it seems to work fine but when connected to your PC it doesn't do anything?

    Vin
    Main Rig
    OS = Win8.1
    CPU = i7-980X @ 4.17Ghz 144x29 cooled by custom Loop
    Mem = 12GB 2000Mhz corsair Dominator GT at 2010Mhz @ 9-10-9-27-2T
    MB = Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD5 v1.0 with F6 Bios - Dead Board
    MB = EVGA X58 Classified3 e770
    GPU = 2x Sapphire r9 290x in xfire
    HD = 2x Toshiba 120GB Raid 0 (580MB Read/140MB Write)
    Storage = 2TB WD Black
    PSU = EVGA SuperNOVA 1300w
    Case = Cooler Master HAF-X 945

    HTPC / Home Server
    OS = Win7 64Bit running XBMC HTPC Front end with Windows Server 2011 Virtual Machine with 8GB ram assigned for homer server with exchange

    GPU- EVGA GT210
    HD = too many to count, but about 5TB of storage all together including backup
    PSU = Corsair TX750
    Case = Too embarrassed to mention.

    Correct. I bought a PSU tester and tested the old PSU and it appears to be dead. I tested a new one (which I exchanged) and it appears to be working correctly. I also replaced the mobo battery. I connected the 24 & 8 pin leads and still get nothing .. Update : occasionally the 6 LEDs flash when I push the on/off button.

    That's a weird one. do you have a different branded PSU you could try? or can you try that PSU in a different system?
