can you see any parts that are fried? Any smoke?
Wasn't paying attention and hooked up - to + and + to -.
Pretty stupid. And now my M4-ATX keeps blowing the fuse.
Is there something other than a borked PSU that could be causing this?
Probably fried. Take a look on the M4 to see if there is an integrated fuse. I don't think there is, but you never know.
If you shredded it, chalk it up to experience. I zapped a $500 LCD from static electricity on the carpet. Everyone does it at some point.
There's a fuse on the M4, but that was blown too. I'm looking for something other than that?
you might be able to rma it if its under warranty. i know it was your fault, but it probably wouldnt cost them much to fix it and im sure they would want a happy customer. to be honest that power supply should have reverse polarity protection, its a little lame that it doesnt.
It's called not being stupid. Dang. I'm so po'ed at myself.
Thanks for all your help.
we all do it, i broke my xenarc doing the same thing. Its a good lesson learned, now i check polarity with every plug!
Wouldn't you know it....I bought a new M4-atx, hooked it up and the fuse blew.
I completely unhooked *all* my connections, re-hooked it up, and the old one works.
I really hope I take my time and shake off these moronic moments.
