Not really.
Have some PSU here that won't do anything with paperclip but run fine with board attached.
That is true for some psu's, but the Seasonic website recommends that method for testing one's Seasonic PSU.

Vikash: the "paperclip test" is using a paperclip to connect the Power-good line to ground. I see that in one of your comments that you do not want to stick something in your PSU. But the Seasonic site tells and shows you how to do a paperclip test with your ATX24 motherboard cable.

I have requested the exchange but they have not agreed yet.
Hello Vikash,

Thank you for your reply.
To burn in your PSU, the only way is to use some benchmarks (OCCT, Catzilla, Furemark) in order for your computer to be loaded and so will be your PSU.

As you have started your RMA process (with your reseller or with our distributor?), is it possible to know the serial number of the PSU in order for our distributor to track it and test it for us.


Thank you very much.
Best Regards,
