  1. Pretty sure my psu died, I did the paper clip test and nothing happend. But my question is, how do I know if any of my other components didn't die with the psu? How often does the psu kill other components? My specs:

    Cpu: Amd fx 8320e
    Gpu: Amd r7 370 2gb
    Motherboard: Asrock 970m pro3
    Psu: A power ak series Sara atx power supply 680w (I know it's a TERRIBLE power supply)

    Uncertain. Recommend working from the power outlet...follow the chain.

    Prove good wall outlet first.

    Check power cable for connection.

    Check PSU for on/off switch.

    Check motherboard for power LED.

    Still 'dead', substitute a known good PSU.
