    Quick question about Antec TruePower Trio 650W PSU

    Hi, I just wanted to ask a very simple question about the Antec TruePower Trio 650W power supply - does it come with a mains power cord in the box? Or do I have to buy one separately? I'm guessing it does but I don't want to be caught out...

    All psu's I've had have come with the power cable, but, if it dosn't, it just a kettle lead so you've prob got a spare one in the house somewhere.

    Hello, I just bought one of these and its not short of any cables, thats for sure.

    It comes with a 3 pin fan sensor which I cant work out where it goes, any one know ?

    Some power supplies have the 3 pin fan sensor to monitor the fan rpm so you plug it in to the motherboard.

    True, but if you don't know where to plug it into, don't do it at all (could end up frying the mobo, and poss everything attached to it).

    The one from the PSU should only have the PWM wire attached to send the information on how fast the fan is spinning - It shouldn't ever cause the risk of damaging anything
    I don't know the exact voltage, but its very low.

    Besides, it would be physically hard to fit a fan header on to anything bar what its designed to go on

    Maybe with these modern boards, but I mucked up a build a few years ago doing just this, there was a spare cable, I thought, that can't be right, so plugged it into the only socket it would fit...cue blue flash and smell of burning plastic.

    It was my first build though

    What the HELL did you plug it into?

    I cant think of one thing that you could have managed to fit in on!
    And to get a blue flash.....Just how! ?

    Na, I don't need help to screw something up. As for what I plugged it into, I don't know (it was a really long time ago)

    After I realised it wasn't going to work (the blue flash was a clue), I took it down the range and blew it to pieces, still didn't work, but I felt alot better
