    no POST or no power up -

    How to respond to a no POST or no power up situation... I found this tutorial very useful. Great work! However, a problem with a PC I’m trying to get to a working state goes a bit further than that, motherboard mechanical failure I suspect. And that is not my area of expertise so I was hoping for some advice. After leaving the motherboard without the battery or PSU for a day, when I put the battery back in and plug the PSU it POST-s but freezes not long after that and after restarting won’t POST again. I’ve been repeating the steps for a few days now and every day it’s the same. Only cpu and ram are in the motherboard for testing purposes and they have all been tested and are cleared. So why would motherboard POST after spending some time unplugged and then crash and not POST not long after getting some electricity again? Visually I can’t find any defects. I was thinking of motherboard reflow as a next course of action?

    PSU fan replacement

    Mission accomplished! Thank you all for help! The new fan is a lot quieter than the stock one. I'm happy with the result. The work

    PSU fan replacement

    So I'm planning on buying Scythe Grand Flex 120mm, 1600 RPM , 28,5 dBA , 61,1 CFM... Open the PSU, cut and solder the two wires and hope for the best. Hopefully less noise and enough cooling power.

    Can you tell me how I can see my current PSU temperature? Does my PSU even have a temp sensor?

    PSU fan replacement

    You lost me there... I'm wasn't planing on using any noise adapters and my primary goal is to make my PSU quieter. I thought this fan is not as loud as the one I have and that it will be more quiet even when spining at 1600RPM (which it will as I understand giving that PSU only has red and black wire, no automatic speed adjustment... I'm I getting that right?) It's rated 1600RPM and 28.5 dBA (current fan is 2400RPM and 38.3 dBA) so I should see some improvement.

    Folow-up... What do you guys think of Scythe Grand Flex 120 mm 1600rpm for my PSU?

    PSU fan replacement

    Should I be concerned that my current fan spec for CFM is 87.85 and all the fans that I'm looking are 50-60? I've recently bought an UPS and is showing UPS load of 117W for my pc when idle and 220W for full load. So I'm correct to assume that my PSU is not strained and does not need that much cooling power?

    PSU fan replacement

    Well I was thinking of cutting the two wires and soldering them to new fan as the only solution... You're right, warranty expired so no damage there. I don't have a lot of experience, but I watched a couple of youtube tutorials and I think I'm up for the job. I was told that my current fan specs are: +12Vdc, 0.45A,. 87.85 CFM. 2400rpm, 38.3 dBA So I'm looking for something that will do the same job with less noise.

    PSU fan replacement

    Hy! I'm new on this forum and I need some help reducing the noise of my PSU. Can anyone please help me? I have an OCZ StealthXstream 2 700W PSU that does the job well for my needs, but has a pretty loud fan which I'd like to replace to make it quieter. Here's a link to a page where someone tried just that with the same PSU. I need a fan recommendation. All help will be appreciated!
