John, until he moves to power user (I think) he can not view links in the VIP section.

PSU - How to Test

is in the VIP forum, even with the new lower requirements MCleveland cannot access the VIP forum.
Thanks Derek I did know that one has to be in th e forum for a while but I wasn't sure of how long.

I suppose it is only a matter of running through how to test the lead volts with MCleveland if he wants to eh?

PSU - Jump Start

Take particular note of the volts at the grey or gray pin see this Voltage Rails - Power Supply 101: A Reference Of Specifications scroll down to the Power good text and have a read .

Just a WARNING mate don't try to get inside the PSU I know I am probably telling my grandmother how to suck eggs but I feel the need to say it.
I can try the first one, but the second link is VIP which I am not.

You are now :-)
