Hey,
I just built a PC few days back ( Details ) And it suddenly stopped working. First i was afraid that i must have lost the CPU or MB, but the cpu dosnt looks burned or anything, and the green light on MB is on and when i click the Bios update button on my MB, it starts a green light.
So now i think my PSU may have died cause i had connected 4 pin Molex fans to my PSU which aint spinning when i turn the PSU on (but im not sure if they used to spin when i turned the PC on or the PSU on, but they aint connected to my MB in anyways, just my PSU, shouldn't they spin? Or did i lost my MB or CPU?????

Call up Corsair. They're usually great about replacing defective hardware, or if you bought the parts locally, it would be even easier.

Yea, ask Corsair to do an advanced exchange with you on the PSU, they'll ship em fast.

Ouch, Corsiar AX PSU's are one of the best if not THE best PSU's on the market right now.

Wait until you have a replacement and then continue the thread to troubleshoot and run diagnostics.
