Hello. In November, I bought and connected a Seasonic S12 PSU with sleeving on output cables, 500 W (below they seem to be old Tornado). So far, my computer starts every time. Thanks to this and to my trials with resistors, the conclusion is, indeed, an awry PSU (Fortron BlueStorm). (I was absent fo...

Thank you Devonavar. I think you might be gettings voltage rails confused with individual cables. Yes I made confusion. :oops: I figured out that before : " (I don't know if the rails come from independent lines or not, in the upstream, inside the PSU), " Tue 03 Oct 2006 17:09 GMT + 1 Hour but, afte...

Mike, I was talking about global load produced by the devices directly connected to the PSU only, contributing to the initial draw, as identified above : disks, fans, lights ... I was wondering about the balance between the two rails for these devices only, because their cumulative load seems, if I ...

Unfortunately, the addition of a 80 mm fan does not prevent from startup failures. Furthermore, the failure occurs either after a long power off period or soon after a shutdown. Anyway, the loads of my configuration seem to be over the requirements if they can be considered as a whole. My devices ar...

Mike, Sorry, I wanted to say that it is not a big deal to do it ; but I have not yet got the fans. I just keep on hand one 80 mm fan (Cooler master sleeve) but its input current is only 0.15A (IE 1.80 W). I have hooked it up, right now, to the PSU and that starts ; but I need to do several trials es...

Consider separate voltages ?

Thank you Mike . Since your post on Saturday, I worked a lot to known how the different voltages are distributed in the different output lines of a PSU ; it's not so easy to find on the web. It's now a little clearer for me. I can connect several fans directly to the PSU for testing the hypothesis, ...

Bluefront OK if you are speaking about making tests with a common light to see if the failure disappears, but for a light to be installed permanently I think the usual loads drawn by these lights (commonly LED or light-emitting tubes) are too weak. Don't you think so ? Skromnibog Thank you for the ...

Amperage

...it seems that FSP400-60GNF requires more than one fan to start. It requires 1A, ... Hello Skromnibog. Our PSU are not far from each other. I do not see from which information you infer that your PSU requires 1A. Could you help me please to understand how to deduce such an information from the sp...

No POST

Thank you Mike for these advice, and information about the PSU that are ok. They will be helpful to me. More information about the dysfunction I am faced to :  After a failure, if I unplug and plug in again the power cable from the computer, then the system usually starts at the next trial. If I ...

No POST

Hello. It seems that I'm faced to the problem mentionned in Mike's article "Efficient PSUs that don't start" http://www.silentpcreview.com/news652.html More often that not the PSU starts the system, but sometimes the POST does not occur. Cf my configuration below. Is information available now about ...
