Hello! I recently complted my build:

Intel Core i3-2120 Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz LGA 1155 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000 BX80623I32120

SAPPHIRE 100315L Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

Cooler master HAF 912 Case

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBXL

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - OEM

***CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 V2 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply***

ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Samsung by Seagate Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ/ST500DM005 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Heres my situation: I got the computer built. Everything was correctly plugged in, secured, grounded. Flick the switch- Nothing. So I tested out some things, ruling out my motherboard, connector peices etc...

I hooked up my old PSU (Disconnected GPU etc because of it being a 250w) and the motherboard started right up.

So I continued to test the PSU by putting a paperclip into the green wire socket and a ground socket, and it turned on. However, what I noticed is the Connection on the inside of the 24 pin connector was loose and would only turn on if i applied some wiggiling to the paperclip. (I realize the size of the paperclip isn't made for the socket) So I tested it on my other motherboard, nothing at all.

What do I do? Pay these mongrels 20 dollars to send it back and get another?


Thankyou for your time.

I'm not sure I understand the question... if the PSU is bad of course you need to RMA it....

$20 to the Vendor? What about the manufacturer?

Would this loose connection within the 24-pin connector be the main problem on why this thing isn't working? Could it be something else?

Also:
The 24-pin connector will not "click" onto my motherboards power supply slot. It will rest all the way on it, but is not posting or turning on when I flip the power on. This connection is what I believe the problem could be; but when I used it on another motherboard, it would not power up either. Bad connector? Bad PSU all together? Should I just RMA and hope for the best on the next?
Thankyou-

Very unlikely that you get two bad ones in a row!

If you got this from newegg, just call customer service and they will give you a prepaid shipping label. So you dont pay anything
