Hiya All!

I finally came here after a very helpful essenbe pointed me in this direction.

So, my name is Flax Seed and I'm an alcoholi....

No wait wrong forum

essenbe said I should come over here but I'll be honest, I don't overclock and when I seen the thread topics I thought 'I'll get a ribbing over there because I don't speak the lingo" but essenbe said you guys are cool and are the best to ask about future purchases I plan to make.

So Hi

Can I ask you guys something, this might sound weird, well, weird to me.

Does having a new psu or cpu/fan/mobo have teething problems. This happened more than once for me. I got a new psu (1000w corsair). I had to pump it (if that makes any sense). I was almost in tears thinking after I had replaced my old psu that it didn't work, it seems I had to let the power have time to flow?

Is that how they work? I was about to send my new psu back to corsair and all of a sudden "It's alive!" and worked ever since.

That sounds very strange. I would power dower and check all connections. Please explain pump it

Lol pump it = off, on, off, on, reset, inject adrenaline lol. Panic attack from a noob, it worked in the end :S

This seems to happen to me a lot. It's probably because I'm an impatient moron. After I got my new cpu, when I sat it and pulled the arm, I freaked out because it made what can only be described as tiny robot leafs being crushed. I lifted the arm and yet again, almost tears lol (crybaby) I thought I had flattened the cpu connectors and that was why my new mobo wouldn't power on.

Turns out, thanks to corsair, the 12 pin slipped out on the psu end when I was changing mobo's
I almost sent mail to Amazon <--idiot

Okay, that makes sense. Please do a few things so we can help you better

First, fill in your system specs

System Info - See Your System Specs

I am curious why it had a slow start for you. Re-seating the connections may help, so do that.

Next we need to know what the voltages look like. You can read them in your bios, or use software and post a screenshot
