Question about RaidMax Aurora RX580 (RX580F) 580-Watt Power Supply
I made sure to install everything correctly, but the first time i turned on the computer with the new PSU, it started, lit up for about a second, and then shut off. After I unhooked it i heard a strange whirr or woosh noise come from the PSU. Is it a faulty unit?
If it's a new PSU, then return it for a replacement...Even online distributors will replace faulty units. And since your old PSU works on it, I'd have to say it's the new PSU that's faulty. Did you make sure that it's the right PSU for the CPU that you have? (As there are PSU units for AMD and seperate ones for Intel...Intel just has a additional power cord to connect to the motherboard)

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan
is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or
to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including
the leads from your
"((MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE))" make sure they have a secure connection and
are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps
