Question About EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 G1+

I purchased the EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 G1+ and I am waiting for it to arrive. 

 

I have a motherboard that is used and I cannot know if it malfunctions in any way.

 

Would you advise me to use the new powerful psu to test the motherboard or use a cheaper psu to test it?

 

If so, what should that test psu be? Many thanks.

Just because its a 1000W PSU doesn't mean 1000W are going to go straight into the motherboard. If you have the rest of the components, you can just do a test assembly on the motherboard's box with the CPU, CPU cooler (with thermal paste),  RAM, and a GPU installed connected to a monitor and test to see the system turns on.

Thank you for the response. My concern is not the 1000W. Lets say that the used mobo is fried/shorted, could that affect the expensive PSU?

I don't believe a defective motherboard would cause any issues back to the PSU. That is my hypothesis whether or not a shorted motherboard would affect the PSU. 

 

Also, use the MultiQuote (a big plus sign +) in the bottom left corner of our posts when replying back to someone so that we receive a notification that someone responded to a post you made or use the "@*insertUsernameHere" of the nickname when posting like MultiQuote, but mainly use the MultiQuote option.
