I'm really close to building my new pc and I wan't to be really sure I didn't get a defective PSU that will blow my MB and anything connected to it. I've read too many newegg reviews that it made me paranoid even though I'm confident on the quality of the PSU I bought
So basically what I'm asking is if I can turn on the PSU without anything connected just to make sure it works properly and won't "poof" right away. Is this safe or does it have to be connected to a motherboard first?
I got a Corsair hx850w so I'm pretty confident in its quality.
I guess I'll just plug it in and give it the benefit of the doubt. I thought I would play it safe but from the looks of it, I don't really need to bother testing it first. Regarding shovenose's last post, I didn't really wanna have to go through the trouble of returning the mobo or ram so thats why I wanted to test it first
Thanks for your advice guys. I'm just gonna plug it in and turn it on. And if something happens, I have all of you to blame!
