I have the same PSU and I was unable to "jump" it with a paper clip. It would basically just "hummm" real quick like the night vision goggles from CS 1.6 and then do nothing, no fans or anything. This is only with the motherboard cable connected and the power cable. I don't know if I was doing it wrong or not but the PSU turned out to work fine after I got everything connected.Anyone know how do you properly test a SX600 without it having a standby switch to turn it on/off? Would the standard black/green wire paperclip method work for this PSU? I built my Ncase M1 and the motherboard would not boot. I have an ASUS Impact VII motherboard and when trying to power on, only the 'Power' button on the motherboard would light up and the motherboard's IO panel's reset button lights up too. No peripherals would start or anything.
I tried hooking up a PSU tester to the 24pin connector and got nothing (hence the question of how to properly test this PSU since it gave no readings but yet some basic lights and etc were lit on the mobo). Want to verify if it is a bad power supply or bad mobo
When I first started my build I had the same problem where the mobo lights would turn on but the power button did nothing. Turns out I was powering the CPU through the PCI cable, big no no. I know it sounds silly but make sure you are powering the CPU through the correct jack because even though the connectors are keyed, I still managed to fit it in the wrong place. The blue thing is for the GPU, black is for the CPU. Hopefully your issue is that simple.
Thank you for your advice. I figured that 83C is acceptable. Kind of sucks when they feature a "no rpm" settings for temps below 60C when you constantly idle at 65C lol. Ironically the solution to that is to add more fans amiright?! Going to purchase more industrial Noctuas!The GTX 980 dynamically adjusts its clock speed to keep the temperature at ~83C, so there's nothing abnormal there.
If you want fans on the bottom (e.g. for dust control), go with pressure-optimized fans.
