Newegg.com - COOLMAX CX-400B 400W ATX v2.01 Power Supply - Power Supplies
I just hooked up a power supply from my spare computer that has a 24 pin motherboard connector + 4 pin alternate power connector, and it too did the same thing, yet this processor works fine on my spare rig.
3 power supplies - 2 identical
2 processors - both identical
2 motherboards - both identical
2 sets of RAM - both identical
and even still, 2 systems that won't post/boot/show any video output whatsoever.
The guy at Biostar told me if something was wrong with the processor, but not the board, I would get "Invalid Processor" or some sort of error message on the screen. But I got nothing. Yet this board is packaged with the processor, which suggests it's compatible, yet it doesn't work.
What do I do? Do I just have really bad luck, or what?
edit - I just tried one of the new Coolmax power supplies on my spare computer. It boots fine.
