I just built my first custom build and the desktop let out smoke. I saw that the cpu power connector wasn't plugged in. The cpu fan won't work but the case fans connected to the motherboard works. The system boots up too but the cpu fan isn't working. Help please
I advise checking that out and replacing whatever did it (most likely the PSU).
Also don't turn on the machine without some form of cooling on the CPU, make sure its installed correctly, if its just outright broke, go out and buy a 212 EVO to replace it.
The psu powers the other pieces though. Like the cd drive and sata drive. I don't think it's the psu. I saw the smoke from the top of the case. The system shut down after smoking but I think that was because of the cpu power not plugged in
