Today I began the first step of rebuilding my computer.  Motherboard on it’s box on kitchen table.  Got CPU, heat sink fan and one stick of memory installed.  Plugged everything in and the fan to the PSU does not turn on, and neither does the CPU fan.  Green light on motherboard lights up, but that’s it.

Motherboard is ASUS P8Z77-V Pro.

Do I have a dead PSU?

Do you have another system to try the OCZ PSU with? Or another PSU to try with your new build?

No.  That would have been the first thing I tried if I did.

I'm afraid in that case it will be hard to test. You could try shorting the power on pins on the motherboard header with a screwdriver, or shorting two pins (can't remember which ones, Google it) on the actual PSU to check if the PSU will run

Disconnect everything from the power supply.

 

Short the green wire to any black wire on the 24 pin connector and the power supply should switch on?

 

If it doesn't connect a small load to the power supply, a couple of hard disk drives will do and try again.

 

What happens?

I shorted the green and black wire, and the only peripheral I had was an old hard drive to plug into the PSU.  The fan came on, but soon went off.  I tried the test again, and the fan did not come on.  Connecting it back to the motherboard, and the fan did not come on.  Disconnected from the motherboard, and shorted it again, and the fan came on.  Turned if off, then back on and the fan would not come on.  Waited a minute and tried again with a paper clip between the green wire and a black wire, and the fan would not come on.

Problem solved.  I needed to touch a screwdriver to the power switch pins to turn the motherboard on.  I don’t remember having to do anything like that with my last build, but I’ve slept since then.

Now, I’m trying to figure out how to run memtest.  I have the program on a thumb drive, and can see it in the BIOS screen, but that’s as far as I can get.

You have to make sure the usb drive is made bootable, then set your bios to boot from it. There's lots of free programs online to make the usb bootable.
