I have an 850 GQ thats been on my shelf for a while. i never used it. it was a warranty product that was sent to me.
I think my supernova 1000 P2 is leaving me.
So, i pulled the 850 out and installed it, and it wont turn on the PC.
LED lights on the board come on, but, no start.
I put the 1000 P2 back in and its running.
I tried the self test plug on the 850 GQ and the fan spins for 2 sec then stops. Does that mean its broken?

    See: How do I test my power supply? in the EVGA FAQs.
     
    Disconnect the PSU from everything..With ECO Mode disabled/off, the PSU fan should run continuously..If it doesn't, something is wrong with the PSU.
     
    Also: Which EVGA Modular Cables are compatible with my PSU?..All GQ power supplies are not cross-compatible with any other cables..So don't use cables from any other PSU with a GQ unit which could cause the PSU to turn off or ruin a component in your PC.

    I was using the 1000 P2 set. Are these not compatible?

    Use the cables that come with the GQ..Don't just plug P2 cables into the GQ, if that's what you're doing because shorting/damage can occur.

    Yeah if you look at all the cable sets available from the evga store none of them have the GQ power supplies listed as compatible with them. They seem to be for some reason totally different.  I have a set of the green 1600 watt cables and a set of the green 1300 watt cables and they are identical pin-out but on the store page it says the 1600 watt cables are for the 1600 watt only and nothing else. Only thing different is the 1600 watt cable set has more gpu pcie cables with it. But if your power on self tester is only making the power supply fan spin for a couple seconds it sounds like it may be defective.

    GQ would not be compatible with the P2. DO not plug it in. It will cause issues.

    If you plugged your HDD or SSD into the GQ with the P2 cables, your HDD or SSD is probably dead. The most incompatible cable is the sata cable, the pin outs are different.
