Hey guys, I got a new CPU and MOBO for Christmas. Also a new case. I started my old computer in the morning and ran fine, later today I took the psu out and hard drive to build my new pc. I put everything in correctly but no signs of power, no lights, and the cpu fan moved a millimeter for the first time but could not do it again. I tested the PSU with paper clip test and the fan spun. I did a lot of other trouble shooting and determined it was my mobo (i think). I put my old psu back in my old computer and the same thing, no lights or sign of power. Did my PSU die?

That test for PSU is useless. I curse anyone that invented it. :(
Use either a proper tester or another, known good and compatible PSU.
