No I do not have a spare PSU that will work with this level of MoBo. The test was suggested by seasonic and I was given a link to their own webpage for instructions for this test http://seasonicusa.com/RMABeta/JumpStart/JS.pdf
and was told by seasonic with the first PSU that if that test failed, it most likely means the PSU is bad.(I would think if this test wasn't meant for that PSU, they would have not told me to use it)
The setup is just the motherboard, CPU, and video card sitting on the foam the motherboard came with on the wooden kitchen table,(PSU sits on a different piece of foam on table) I don't see how there is room in that for grounding. What exactly do you mean by "shorted"?
There was one weird thing that happened with the motherboard though, since it was a pain to connect the power switch from case to the board outside of the case (the reach of the cable is short) I tried the screwdriver to the power switch pins technic to get it to start (that technic didn't work before, so I didn't really expect it to work this time) it worked. But then it was like always on, when I turned the PSU off, then on again, it was like the on button was already pressed, I tried turning it off and on several times, at least once resting it and unplugging it from the wall.
When I connected the power switch cable to the pins, this went away, it only turned on when I hit the button, even then removing the cable latter, the issue did not return.
