  1. Hi Everyone

    I have recently built a new PC for a friend made from the following:

    Kandalf LCS Case (the one with built in liquid cooling)
    Thermaltake 520W Power Station Modular PSU
    XFX 768MB 8800GTX Graphics Card
    2 GB (2 x 1GB) Corsair Dominator DDR2 6400
    2 x SATA DVD-RW Drives
    2 x SATA 320GB HDD's
    1 x SATA 400GB HDD
    ASUS P5N32-E SLi Motherboard
    Intel E6600 DUal Core Processor

    The problem is the machine kept shutting down. I looked in the bios and the 12v reads 0.0. I put a new PSU (Hiper 580W Modular) and the 12v worked for a few minutes and then returned to 0.0

    I tested both PSU's in another PC and both worked fine (used Speedfan). Why would the new PC stop the PSU's working?

    Any help much appreciated
