If you build computers as a hobby or for a living, you will eventually run into defective products. It happens to everyone and there are few ways to find out if the product is defective before installing it into your system and turning it on. Probably one of the worst parts to be defective is the power supply because your computer won’t turn on for starters and it could fry your CPU, motherboard, or other parts if it gives the wrong voltages. You can use to old paperclip to check if the power supply is dead but this method can also damage the power supply as well.
