Just built new system:
MSI 845PE Max2
2.53 P4
1 gig Samsung memory
200 gig WD SE harddrive
Plextor 48/24/48
250 Zip Internal
Wanted to beef up the powersupply from 300 watt to 420 watt.
Went with a TTGI smart fan (auto thermostatic). Could not get system to boot. Does anyone have input on the "smart fan" design? Do I need to plug one of the p/s connections to the mobo? Out of fear of damaging the mobo or cpu, I reinstalled the working 300w p/s until I figure the problem out. I probably should have gone with a better brand name powersupply?
Best and warmest regards,
Maw

The smart fan aspect shouldn't affect anything that you can change, it's just a sensor that controls the fan speed based on temperature in the P/S. If you are sure you had everything connected properly, my guess is a bad P/S.

P/S update

Thanks for the quick response!
I took a deep breath, started over and "concentrated" on the task at hand.
BING!
Power supply installed flawlessly just like the good ones do!
Lesson learned...you can't multi-task when you are plugging and unplugging stuff...duh.
I am glad I upgraded the p/s, and this one is a quiet one even!
Now on to installing all those apps and other hardware...
Best and warmest regards,
Maw
