there your issue. no cpu, no ram, no ssd/hdd
I hope he isn't trying with just the three parts, and just in case he isn't, if nothing else at least the fans would still turn on without cpu, right?

Is the PWR switch connected to the correct prongs on the motherboard? Did you connect both the 24 pin and 8 pin wire connectors from the PSU to the motherboard?

The fans dont go on when i connect them to the motherboard or power supply
But the computer where i checked the power supply didnt have fans so maybe it is the power supply or it is the box but there are two fans so the Chanses of both Being broken isn’t very big.

Is the 8 pin a very big one and the 24 a small one?
If thats te case then yes.

check the 8-pin or 4-pin ATX/EPS cable is properly plugged into the motherboard (may be labeled CPU on some PSU cables)
the 24-pin is the main power cable on the motherboard not small - but hard to get that wrong.
450W may be a bit low for a 5700 but it should boot at least

450w is definitely an iffy choice for a PSU with that build, I personally would atleast go 650w for headroom and unforeseen situations.

OP, the switch on the back of the PSU, is that flipped the right way?

But are you connecting it to the correct prongs on the motherboard? There are alot of different connections in that area, I personally have attached them to the wrong ones a few times.

You have them opposite but yes, kinda.


That's the 24 pin, connects to the right side of your motherboard, near the edge.



That's the 8 pin, connects on the top of your motherboard, normally the left corner, labeled CPU at times.

make sure you have the wires plugged into the right header?
you can just short those pins (carefully ) w/o the switch using a paperclip or screwdriver

pg 27 shows the correct pins. (upper row of header)
System Panel header is on the lower right hand corner of the m/b in a standard photo

Is it an option that the power switch of my old computer doesn’t work on this new computer?
