Power Supply blew out...... Tags: Power Supplies AMD Components Last response: May 7, 2010 1:45 PM in Components Share Charleston08 May 6, 2010 12:27:30 AM I just recently purchased the new 1055T AMD Phenom II processor and a GIGABYTE GA-890GPA-UD3H AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard to go with it. I had a OCZ StealthXStream OCZ600SXS 600W ATX12V power supply and it blew up...I tried it on another PC and it isnt working. Luckily it didn't damage the hard drive but what else could of it harmed and why did it blow up most importantly?

You try the "paperclip trick" ? use a paperclip (color covered ones work good with ends stripped) instead of the switch http://www.gideontech.com/content/articles/196/1 Suggest an EA-650 or TX650 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... | Report abuse Charleston08 May 6, 2010 12:52:17 AM I actually hooked it up to a spare PC i had laying around. It wouldn't even power the CPU fan....... I thought at first it was a bad motherboard because 3 hours before it was working flawless. I went to put the new mobo and processor in and POOF didnt make a sound either. | Report abuse Charleston08 May 6, 2010 2:38:51 PM Anyone else know? | Report abuse saaiello Power supply Master May 6, 2010 2:44:55 PM PSU is bad if its not that old you can try to RMA it thru OCZ they do have 3 year warranties on most their PSU's and will actually send you a brand new unit if its defective but who knows how long that will take. | Report abuse jsc Power supply Master May 7, 2010 1:45:06 PM Charleston08 said: I had a OCZ StealthXStream OCZ600SXS 600W ATX12V power supply and it blew up... ... but what else could of it harmed No way off knowing until you can power up the system to see. and why did it blow up most importantly? said:and why did it blow up most importantly? Because either sh!t happens or because it is an OCZ StealthXStream. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Components>Power Supply blew out......> Related ressources: ForumPower Supply blew house fuse ForumPower supply blew ForumMy power supply blew up.
