Yep I have just jumped into the deep end lol Just wanted to confirm that he is actually using all 8 pins and not just 4
I didn't realize that there were 8 pins there, I thought it was 4. But, I see that now that you guys mentioned it. But, we had asked earlier in the thread about that socket. The problem is that his PSU just humms when he plugs in the power cable to it, and does nothing when he presses the power switch. The fans and lights should at least come on, even if it shut back down.

Something lacking far too often, I might add.

Yes I tend to agree with you, and the OP will probably know the answer anyway but I have heard of the PC failing to work when the wrong connector is fitted

Okay, I'm staying out of it. I see two different photos being shown for the same motherboard. It seems the ATX 8-pin connector SHOULD be populated according to Pouch's documentation. The two boards shown must not be the same revision. That's why it's important to use the docs for the specific board.

But in any case, yes, the PS itself is still suspect; However, the buzz could be caused by incorrect connections too. We really don't know what the OP has wired up.

Don't mate one of those boards was an old AMD board of mine used only to show the 8 pin connector. Your post was good

Yes I agree with Pooch and Steve, another pair of eyes can't hurt.

Take a paperclip or something else bare metal, and with the Qconn attached to the board, connect the two power pins briefly and remove the metal object and see if that powers it on.

Okay sorry guys, I was busy until now I just tried the paper clip trick and the power supply does turn on but spins at a very low rate im assuming because nothing is taking energy from it at all,
