System configuration:
intel core i7 2.66 @4.00 ghz
Ocz 6gb ddr3 1600mhz ram
3x GTX260 three-way SLI
THX850w Corsair PSU

Last night, I opened my case to check for a fan that wasn't spinning.. I realized that it was unplugged then I plugged it and ready to go but.. when I connected everything back together, my pc didn't powered up (seconds later I smelled like something had burnt).. after that I began to get worried about my PSU or even my motherboard had burnt, so I began to test everything... I removed the video cards, just left one. Tested and it powered up but there was no POST and even some fans were not running at all. The video card fan didn't powered up and the motherboard integrated LCD didn't post anything.. it seems that the motherboard is not sending the power to run the fans.

Hello and welcome to the forums
Is it possible for you to test your PSU in another system ?

Thanks for replying, I own a Dell E520 system.. i don't know if I am able to test it in that system.. I also have a Thermaltake 430w boxed, i think I can use it to test the system..
What do you think?
