Hello people Need help...

Ok i bought a 295 gtx and i was ujsing a 500watt corsair power supply CX-500 So i needed to change this to run my 295 gtx ..
I bought this off ebay . http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/181056362866?ssPageName=STRK:...
Artic Blue 850W Power Supply Unit PSU , Its cheap i know but i needed something fast.

Here is my system:
Motherboard - Gigabyte EX58-UD5
CPU - i7 920 Bloomfield ( Stock Clock )
Corsair DDR 3 1600 Mhz 8 Gb RAM ( 4 x 2 GB )
Graphics card - Point of view GTX 295 ( 6 Pin & 6 + 2 Pin )
Cooler - Corsair Closed Circuit H60 Water Cooler
160 Gb Sata HDD Hitachi
4 USB's Connected
1 Speaker Jack connected ..

Nothing atal is powering up..

Here is what Connectors I have connected to my system..
1x Motherboard 20+4 Pin
1x Sata
1x 4+4 Pin ( Motherboard CPU 8 Pin )
1x PCI-e 6 Pin & 1x PCI-e 6+2 Pin For Graphics card.

I dont understandm why the lights on my motherboard are coming on but no power/Boot/Or Fan Spin

I have just went back to my old power Supply & graphics card
Corsair CX500 and its working fine.

I was thinking maybe the 4+4 pin ( Pin CPU) was maybe not compatible with my mobo and CPU

Its doing my head in tbh..

Please Help me some 1 Before i Crack up

Thanks
Craig

That's what happens when you buy "cheap" power supplies. Sorry you had to learn the hard way. Try to get a refund or use it on a "cheap" build....

The PSU you bought is likely just junk, sorry. I seriously doubt that it is producing nearly as much power as the Corsair. Stick to quality PSU brands like Seasonic, Corsair, Antec, and stay away from the "bargain" brands.

Please don't post the same question multiple times. Thanks.
