View Full Version : Power Supply always on KNXP

I bought a enermax whisper quiet 460 a week ago and installed it on a
new 8KNXP. Here's the deal; when i turn ps power on, the cpu, fans, cd,
etc turns on and and will run continuously. This is before the power
switch on the case is hit. When the power switch is hit, the mb powers
up and the system boots. What gives; seems like a defective ps to me.
This happens at roon temp (73F) so it does not seem to be temperature
related. Please advise, any help appreciated. If this is a feature and
I am being stupid, please still advise :)

Thanks in advance,

Jim Barker

Thanks, it does have it and i set it soft off no joy. However, i plugged
th ps into an intel board--same problem. I then installed an Antec
truepower in the Gigabyte board and it works fine. So, regardless of
Enermax and the dealer telling me I don't know what i am doing and it
could not possibly be the ps--guess what , it is.
