I bought some parts for my first build and when i connected the PSU to the motherboard it wouldn't power on. Its a Cooler Master Silent pro hybrid 850w. I tried plugging the psu into the outlet itself and nothing happened. I tried a paperclip method with the motherboard power cord connected to the psu and i put the paperclip into the green and black pins. I tried different black pins and nothing happend. I will probably have to return it to newegg but do you guys know any other way to check if its broken? Because i would hate to return it and find out the problem was the cable or i did something wrong and idk if anything else is defective. Also for the cpu power supply it says ATX12v1 where i plugged that cable into. The cable i used was a a 4+4 pin.
I will return it thanks. iin the vents i can see some white glue thing on some of the parts is that supposed to be there?
id say the glue probably is not supposed to be there but then again my not hurt anything. ive opened up and worked on OZ power supplies with that same white glue over everything and everythign worked fine till it was hit by a surge and needed an internal fuse replacement.
Thanks for the help guys. i'll return it, hopefully they replace it and don't say its my fault. Or nothing else is defective. Do you guys know anywhere i can store the motherboard until then? Can i put it in a box cause i already attached cpu and fan.
The glue is supposed to be there.
Newegg gives you thirty days, after that you have to deal with the manufacturer, either way could end up taking a couple of weeks
If you're not strapped for cash I find the best way to deal with them is to return the item for a refund and just order another, lessens the wait
