I have started setting up this PC, I am waiting on the Heatsink to come in so I have not installed the processor. I just have the power supply, ram and fans set up...I just plugged in the power cable and pushed the the power button and nothing happened...shouldnt some light come on or something or am I being crazy?
Its alittle crazy turning on the power without a CPU installed, if you wanted to test out the fans or something you could short the PSU so it supplies power to the fans without supplying power to the motherboard.
All you have to do to short a PSU is connect the green 24 pin cable to any black cable with a paper clip, just make sure that no HDD's/Motherboards/RAM ETC are connected to the PSU at the time.
I wouldn't recommend powering on a PC without a CPU and cooler installed.
Thanks for that...am not even going to attempt the PSU shorting...am just going to wait to 2morrow evening when the heatsink comes in to try it...I just got a bit antsy...and just wanted to see some lights and fans move lol...dont judge me..lol
