Hey everyone, this is my first post on this site. I just ordered a new case from Newegg, a Logisys phantom cs 601. It looks really cool and I thought I could put a recently aquired motherboard in it. The problem I am running into is when I plug in the computer power cord the fan on the power supply does not run. I don't know if the PS has to have a load on it ....ie(monitor,video card...etc) before the fan kicks in and cools the PS down.

Also the motherboard I aquired is a P4 that was given to me, the person who had it before overclocked it and blew the power supply on his old computer. Thats why I bought this logisys case with a 480 power supply.

My questions for anyone who can answer them.

1. Could the fan the new case be broken? This is my 2nd case with the same exact problem....I sent the other one back to newegg and they just sent me this one.

2. Could the motherboard be fried? since the person overclocked the processor.

3. Does the motherboard hve to be plugged in and running to make all the lights on the case work?

thanks

1. this does happen with case venders. I purchase many cases on newegg, and it always turns out that the case manufacturer took the cheap way out on the psu. This is a factor, but maybe try running the computer with a few programs running and see if the psu attempts to cool itself. If it doesnt, just replace the power supply. 450 watt 20-24 pin psu's can be picked up for around 35-40 bucks.

2. Its a possibility, You can try the motherboard in a new case, and if it works fine this is your problem.

3. Technically, if you want to turn the computer on (power switch wise)....yes. After the computer is turned on, al other lights should function.

Well, I do belive you need to turn the psu on using the motherboard by the power switch for it to work. everythingneeds to be linked to work.
