- PSU: SeaSonic SSR-650RM
- Motherboard: Asus Z87-PLUS
Built this new rig in January of this year. Been running like a champ. Came home the other day from work to find my PC was off (I leave it on pretty much 24/7). Press the power button, power light blinks and goes out, blinks and goes out again, nothing. Unplugged it and plugged back in, tried different outlets, etc, no difference.
Took off the cover, mobo power light is on as normal. Pressing the power button, it looks like the fans kick on for a brief moment, only moving an inch, then stops. Case power button and mobo power button do the same thing. So I unplug all power connection except for the mobo, attempt to power on, same issue. Unplugged the 24-pin ATX power cable and plug it back in to make sure it's seated properly, same issue.
So I short the green and black wires on the 24-pin ATX power cable to jump start the PSU, and the PSU fan actually comes on! So I plug everything back in as normal, PC was powering up fine after that.
4 days later, I'm at work and I see that my PC is offline again. So I'm assuming the same thing has happened, will verify when I get home. I'm really torn on if this is the PSU or mobo. More than likely seems like the PSU to me.
EDIT: Well I got home and was indeed having the same issue. I did the jump start trick with a paperclip again, PSU comes in for a minute then goes out. Going to RMA with SeaSonic.
