I recently built a new computer, when putting the case back on an exposed extra fan connector (it was powered, connected to a pass-thru adapter on a peripheral plug) touched the s-video connector on the video card and the computer shutdown.
The computer appears unharmed (the video card already had issues so it is not in the computer any more), I do not have any hard drives I can use in the computer to test the peripheral plugs. It does successfully boot from a USB drive.
I would like to know whether the power supply or motherboard is likely to have been damaged or not.
The OCZ ZS Series 650W (OCZ-ZS650W) uses an ST9S423 IC chip to provide the power supply protections that OCZ claims that it has.
OCZ claims that this power supply has SCP (Short-Circuit Protection) but the datasheet for the ST9S423 (SMPS Supervisor) IC chip shows that it only supports OVP (Over Voltage Protection), UVP (Under Voltage Protection), OCP (over Current Protection) and OTP (Over Temperature Protection).
OCZ's claim of SCP (Short-Circuit Protection) doesn't seem to be supported.
In case you're wondering, OCP is not the same thing as SCP.
