I just started putting together my own build today,and I ran into a problem. I wanted to make sure all my parts worked before putting them in the case, so I built myself a little makeshift testbench. Once I put it all together and flipped the power switch nothing happens. I made sure that everything was plugged in, so i'm not sure how this happened. I am very aware of static discharge onto the motherboard, and I touched the case about every 5 seconds or less because of how freaked out I am about it. Also In my power supply 24 pin connector there is what looks like a missing connector? I don't know if it is normal, but the 24 pin won't lock into place either. I'm thinking that this could be the problem as no fans start turning, and there is no indication that I just supplied power. I made sure the power supply is plugged into the wall outlet and I plugged in the CPU power and fan, 24 pin power, graphics card 8 pin and 6 pin, and two sticks of RAM. I have attached the picture of the power supply 24 pin, so if anyone can tell me if it looks normal then please do! Please help as fast as possible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! attachment=70864:20140601_123518_resized_1.jpg]
MSI z87 g45 motherboard
Corsair CX 600M PSU
MSI gtx 760
8 gb ram
Is there a way to see if the power supply is producing power? Also sorry for the edits, i'm a bit freaked out that I purchases $1,300 in parts and that it won't work!
