Possible Bad PSU? Need some Input


Jan 7, 2005
I recently installed a Water Cooling setup in my computer. When I leak tested it, it leaked. Some of my components got wet.

The only items in my case were the motherboard, cpu, video card & psu.

I let everything dry out for a few days.

I tested the video card on a different computer and it works fine.

As for the cpu & motherboard, I connected them to my PSU, plugged it in and turned it on.

My case power light stayed on, but nothing happened. I didn't even get a beep code.

I assumed it was a bad board. I replaced it & put it in only to get the same results.

I ordered a new cpu, put it in with the new motherboard. Same thing happens.

The only thing I can think of now is a bad PSU.

When I power the computer on, the PSU fans will spin for a few seconds & then die. The same happens with the case fans I hooked up to it. The power light on the case & on the motherboard both stay on.

If anyone else thinks it is the Power Supply or can think of anything else I should look into please let me know.

Thanks in advance,


Also, if you need any more information let me know.

The PSU in question is a 420W thermaltake PSU.

EDIT : Yeah, the computer ran like a champ before. I wasn't quite sure how to reply (New to the forum thing)<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by billspork on 01/06/05 11:55 PM.</EM></FONT></P>

Did the system work before you installed the water cooler?
