- The PSU is a Corsair 650 watt semi module.
- We bought a cable adapter to convert one of the psu's 6 pin pci-e outlets on the bac to a 4 pin molex.
- On the adapter cable: There are 2 yellow wires that connect 2 pins from the pci-e to 1 pin on the molex, and 2 black wires connecting another 2 pins on the pci-e to another single pin on the molex. Here is the adapter cable: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007NMSUUA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
- When the adapter cable is plugged in to the PSU, the PSU won't power on.
- If i plug in the adapter cable when the PSU is on, the PSU dies.
- Turning the PSU off and then on again seems to reset the PSU
- The computer is dead now. Having this cable plugged in and trying to power up the computer, fried the motherboard.
- Is it normal behavior for the PSU to do this?
- Could this have damaged the PSU?`
- Does it make sense that this fried my motherboard?
- Could this have fried the CPU?
