It should at least boot even if H50 is not most efficiently installed
Thanks for the replies. The 12V supply is plugged in. It should at least boot even if H50 is not most efficiently installed or am I missing something. H50 fan is taking air out of case. Any way to test if the processor is getting power? Does any of the mobo LEDs indicate what is happening with the processor?
These were my tests today:and planning to exchange the mobo and RMA the 550 W for something like 650W.Do you think that i a good idea?
I would agree with you. Your PSU is big enough for what you are running at the moment with some to spare but if you deciced to put in crossfired 5870s or something similar you might start running into trouble. A bit of futurteproofing never hurts and you also have to take into consideration the drop off of the capacitors as they age.
I had the same motherboard and cooler, I had to reinstall the H50 because the fan wasn't spinning for some reason. I re-plugged the corsair fan in and it was fine afterwards.
