Hello. I am in the middle of building a new computer, and there are some issues. The problems will be explained in a YouTube video, and seem to go against what building tutorials have detailed. Specs are below:

  • OCZ ModX Stream-Pro Power Supply 600W
  • Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H Motherboard
  • Intel i5-3570K CPU (with Fan)
  • Geforce GTX 660 2 GB Superclocked Video Card
  • Patriot G2 series DDR3 RAM (2x 4 GB sticks)

I don't know what exactly to do here, or if the fan (or other parts) are broken. If you need any further information, I will respond to this ASAP. Also, could the mobo just be left out in the open overnight if nothing were to disturb it?

Do you have a way to check the PSU? I have very limited experience with building, but I had a computer do that to me once and a tech told me it was the PSU.

We have a second one, and unless the PSU is for some reason incompatible with the other parts, it isn't the PSU. Or it got plugged in wrong. But I don't think that is very likely, given that we are following a video tutorial found here. It's a long video, and we've only gotten about 15 minutes in.

No harm in giving the second one a shot. A dead-on-arrival PSU is always possible. At least you'll have something to try until the real experts give you an answer.
