Just had my Seasonic X1050 crap out. Verified it was the power supply by jumping it without anything connected and it would not turn on. Beyond that, I don't have any experience with PSUs. I bought it in June 2012 so it's out of warranty. Is it worth messing with or should I just chuck it? Got a 600W cheapo Thermaltake at a local store to hold me over until all the new stuff drops later this year for my new build. Thanks in advance.

Its worth having someone check it out. Its a quality unit. If your not familiar with psu repairs i wouldnt try doing it yourself. Even with tons of research it can be dangerous.

Depending on your electronic knowledge, it may be worth a quick once over with a multimeter at least.
If it were me, I would check for blown fuses or anything obvious to main power in or out. I suck at soldering so anything tedious would just end up being a fire hazard.

yea, i may pop it open and have a look with my multimeter. There probably isn't any local shops that could handle it. Maybe I will throw it up for cheap in the FS section and indicate its dead.

I do PSU repair if you still need someone to look at it. Can't guarantee a fix depending on what's wrong with it, but I've fixed a lot of PSUs in the past.
