  • Just got my DSATX!

    well i finally got my DSATX yesterday..

    it is performing very good more than i expected actually. (at least on my bench)..it really deserves every penny of what i paid..

    The only surprise was that i had a check on my mobo before ordering to check for the polarity, by shorting the 2 pins and checking for the voltage with a voltmeter. it gave me around 4.5 -5 volts...so i just decided to make a cable like Jeff recommended.. the cable was ready in 5 minutes..
    when i received the DSATX I tried it with my cable but it just spined for a second then stopped.. i tried to reverse it (even though i was sure it was correct) but the same..nothing

    so i tried the cable that came with the unit.. and guess what.. it works!! I notice the fans spin for a second the stop for half a second then startup fine (is that normal??) but the Power supply works perfectly starting up and shutting down..) I wonder how though!!!

    Mine does that, too. I'm guessing it's normal behavior.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

      you're refering to the power cable that connects the DSATX to the motherboard with the molex device power connectors coming off it?

        I am refering to the 2 pin jumper cable that connects the DSATX to the mobo..(the mobo startup pins).

        the problem is that i do have an inverted mobo..requiring positive voltage.. but the dsatx works with a regular cable, instead of the inverted it sould work

          gotcha, i was actually thinking of the 20?/24? pin power cable.

            I have this same problem...the fan spins for a few seconds then cuts off...I have tried switching the polarities but that didnt do anything...it works fine with a switch...what should I do next, make a new cable?
