I replaced an (old Iím informed) Seventeam st-300BLP 20 Pin Connector, 4 Pin 12V, 5 x Molex Connections, ATX with an Aerocool Integrator 500W 12cm Power Supply Unit all fitted AOK as I replaced the connections one by one so there was no mistakes. Connected up pushed the switch no action, since everything was replaced I looked at the Power on/off switch the replacement is shorter and there is a spur with two jack connector, so this must be my problem? Advice needed, I'm no tech but I get by. I usually get posting wrong so I hope I attached the image file correctly. BC
I think, based on your picture, you are connecting the PCI-E Connectors to CPU Connectors. The PCI-E Connectors can be disassembled in 6-Pin plus 2-Pin, which in your case, your currently holding. The CPU Connector, the one that should be connected to thee motherboard, can be disassembled in 4-Pin plus 4-Pin. Both the PCI-E and CPU Connectors have a total of 8-Pins, but the PCI-E Connectors cannot be disassembled by 4-Pins plus 4-Pins.
Ok I'm not the brightest spark etc, so are you saying I need to change the cable or use another connection aka I'm a little bit lost on this one?
Based on your uploaded picture, you are holding the PCI-E Power Connector. Which in case, should not or should never be inserted or connected to the motherboard. Because, it is designed for the Graphics Card.
You are holding the PCI-E Connector, look at the reference on attached photo. You cannot disassemble it into 4+4 pins right? Because it is for graphics card. You can only disassemble it into 6+2 pins. Because some graphics cards require 6-pins, others 8-pins.
Not like in the CPU Connector, some motherboards, only need 4-pins, others, 8-pins.
Find the right CPU Connector on your Power Supply my friend, see attached photo.
Wow, thanks I'm a bit long in the tooth so I don't panic. I've been here too often after having PCs for 30+ years. I'll dig it all out later as I had to put it away, as Madam doesn't like the sitting room looking like a repair shop (unless it's her PC)!
Yeah got power but no activity, so need to see what the issue is. Will post the outcome. BC
Well, I hope that you did not fried or damage the motherboard / processor by inserting the PCI-E Connector. This is so because, the CPU and PCI-E Connectors have different polarity. Take a look at the attachment, you can see that both cables are completely different.
Cooler Master EX2 625 PSU Fan Weird Sound & Moving Slowly Sorry, this question might sounds silly.
Earlier when I first switched on my PC, I noticed a weird sound, something like brrr.. brrr.. brrr.. and I noticed that it comes from the PSU fan. When I touched the PSU case, it seems to vibrate a little when the fan was making the weird sound.

So I bought a new psu made...
