    You're saying that aside from the fan momentarily starting, the CM psu did not boot the board?

    Yes, The CM PSU would not boot the system. The Powerman PSU I tried right after had no issues booting. The exchange I got from the store was an Enermax, which booted as well. The store tested the CM PSU as "good." That puzzled me.

    By the way, what does BTW stand for?

    It is better to be tried by 12, than carried by 6.
