Antec Lifestyle Sonata II EC/MT (450W)
the power supply is new, so it's not dirty
how can I test of the fan turns when it is supposed to turn, at some amount of temperature?

The other thing, if you haven't already tried - is to open your PC case and observe it while it is running. You might actually be able to see (and link with changing sounds when, say, a fan kicks in.
Hope this helps.

if the fan isnt working on your power supply that thing is getting way hot! have you seen the capacitors in those things????
if something goes wrong and your power sully fails and shorts or blows it very well could damage your motherboard CPU and RAM also it could damage your grahics card.
if this is a brand new ps i would just take it back and say it was faulty and then ask for a replacement

if the PSU is brand new like you say it is just get it replaced. no offence but you would be stupid not to.
You could damage maybe a thousand dollars if not more of PC components all for a silly and easy replacement.
another thing that you should cheack is the capacitors on the motherboard. they usually have a "K" punched in the top of them they look like this:
and can be a range of colours. if the caps are raised and look like they are bulging. your CPU could be overheating and that could be the cause of the smell. mainly look around at the CPU's capacitors.
when it comes to power supplies and things being faulty with them dont risk it what so ever. you could do more damage than just damage to your pc like house fires and the whole lot. just replace it
take it back from where you got it and tell them it was faulty and ask for a replacement

I would like to install a program that can measure if all components of the pc still work correctly. What program could I use?
