Or should say assembled my first rig, as after installing all components, no power. Tried a different cable to a definitely hot lead, but nada. The Rosewill RX850-S-B 850W Continuous @40°C ,80 PLUS Certified, ATX12V v2.2 & EPS12V v2.91, SLI Ready CrossFire Ready PSU...is apparently DOA. No blue lights, nothing.
I'd had a horrible feeling I'd goofed somewhere on the installation, but used a Tomshardware.com guide to assembling a PC, and followed it to the letter. Got MOBO connected. Got case switches & data leads connected to MOBO...got it all connected.
But no juice.
As I've never done this before, what now are my options?
Are there any additional hoops I need to go through to RMA the product?
Will I get my money back (preferred!), or just a replacement PSU?
Thank you dirtyferret. I was planning on SLI'ing two GTX465's though...will 650w be enough?
Thank you beenthere: flipped switch back and forth.. But what is this PSU paper clip trick?
After buying the PSU, did more research and determined that an 80+ Bronze, preferrably from a mfg. like Corsair is the only sensible option...too many horror stories of lesser quality cpu's frying mobo, gpu, etc. to go with anything of questionable quality, just to save a few bucks. So I'd really prefer to return the existing unit. But I burn with curiousity to know if I fu$%ed up the install or no.
