    Hey Everyone

    I'm having a problem installing my new Corsair CX750, when attempting to turn my computer on when it is installed, it doesn't power up, at all. I have connected everything my old PSU was connected to with the new wires but still can't get it to work.

    Specs:
    GA-M68MT-S2 (rev. 3.1) motherboard
    AMD FX-4100 @ 3.6GHz processor
    ATI Radeon HD 6770 gpu
    2x4GB Kingston RAM sticks
    1TB Harddrive

    If you need anything else ask me, or anything added on to what I have already given.

    ****IMPORTANT NOTES

    We couldn't find a 4-pin connector from the new PSU to connect to the motherboard, so we used the 6-pin and attatched it using 4 of the pins. Could this be the problem? And what else should I use instead.

    The old PSU works fine, I just needed an upgrade. I'm actually using it now to run my computer to write this thread.

    Please get back to me ASAP, Far Cry 3 is calling me [​IMG]

    The 6 pin connector is a PCI-Express connector for video cards not the motherboard connector. The ATX12V/EPS connector is an 8 pin that splits into two 4 pin connectors for motherboards that still only use 4 pins.
