Sup everyone. I'm new to the board and i'm seeking assistance w/ my newly purchased PSU.

Model # RS-450-ACLY

Symptom:

I connected this product to my PC and it does not power up. The switch is in the on position, and the LED Fan lights up for a split second and dies.

I'm using the 24 -> 20Pin converter for my Athlon XP Motherboard and disconnected everything but the power to the motherboard and the same symptom occurs. I'm trying to seek help w/ the coolermaster

I was reading in the manual and it says to connect the 24pin AND 4pin connectors. is this required?

ok. problem discovered. :oops: STUPID Abit Motherboard (KX7-333R) is the problem. It must not be responding to the PSU like it's expecting. I placed the PSU onto another machine w/ an AOPEN motherboard (one i'm going to switch to soon) and it works like a charm. :)

I'm so sick of this ABIT mobo.

To say it short: Your motherboard does not follow the current form factor.

The problem is that the MOBO is missing a -5V input.

PSU that folow the form factor standard should NOT have -5V.

Its a litle mistake made by some MOBO manufacturers in the past.

All information on form factors can be found on:
