  • M2-ATX Blows fuse on switched 12V line

    Tried searching, but I haven't found anyone with a similar problem.

    Recently I have had a strange problem with my M2-ATX. The fuse in the switched 12V line will blow at random times. The switched line on the M2 should pull very little power, correct? Do you think I have a bad PS?

    sounds like a wire is shorting out. could even be the mobo shorting out. best idea is to check all the wiring with a multimeter and give the wiring a shake at the same time.
    Never let the truth get in the way of a good story

      It should pull very little power. It could be possible that the switched line is shorting somewhere. You could check that the wire insulation is not damaged or pinched.
