Hey guys, one time I left my desktop computer on and went up stairs to eat then came back down about 20min later, computer is off. pushed power button few times, nothing. My first thought was the PSU.
I did the PSU loop test with a paper clip jumping the green wire with a ground wire. Flipped the switch on the back of my PSU, nothing happened. I looked at the fan and it twitched a little bit looking like it wants to spin but doesn't. So my PSU is dead?
If so what caused it? poor ventilation or temperature related issue leading to something over heated?
Most importantly I wanna know what caused this. I don't wanna spend a lot on another PSU and repeat this mistake. Planning to get a 500W+ this time around.
btw: this is my PSU
and this is my GPU
. I think the PSU barely had the power to power everything and now just gives in. I only had it for about 3 months.
any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!!
