The idea of it perhaps? Bute really, don't know, has not worked yet
I received the unit, tried testing it (jumper test, PSU tester, plugging into mobo) and the unit shuts off immediately. I tried this with and without the connector to eliminate a possibility of a short in the connector.
Out of options, I did an RMA on the unit. The RMA process with shipping times took around 2-3 weeks which isn't terrible turn around time, so I was happy with that. However, the unit came back with the exact same issue.
From what I can tell, I think they replaced the relay during RMA. The relay I do not think was ever the problem as the relay clearly closed and then opened immediately (hear the clicking). That behavior makes me believe that the short circuit protection has kicked in. So, I feel there is an internal short. How the RMA department did not find or test any of these issues is beyond me.
I know DOA units happen from time to time and that does not bother me too much. The fact that the RMA came back DOA is completely unacceptable.
Would not recommend
Hi, Please note, it is always best to test the PSU with the MB (both cables) and a HDD together to see if the system boots. If even for the 2nd PSU that you have received still exhibits the same issue, then perhaps very likely it is another issue possibly the MB. If you have any questions, please contact me at email@example.com Thank you.
