    So i bought an NZXT hale82 650w psu to power my rig.
    NZXT HALE82 HALE82-650-M 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI ...

    i5-3570k
    gigabyte z77-ud3
    palit gtx 680 jetstream 2gb
    2x4gb generic ram
    250gb hdd

    I was able to get it running for an hour to install windows and other programs. Turned it off and called it a night. Next morning, the unit won't turn on. Even the psu's fan isn't spinning. Is the problem with the psu or could it have been caused by something else? Thanks!

    use a paper clip and jump the green and any black in the 24-pin of the PSU and see if it fires up.
    Of course this is when the PSU is disconnected from the motherboard.

    I never trust anything but Corsair for my power supply.

    That really helps!:shadedshu

    The supply he has is one of the better supplies in it's catagory.

    Quote, on the NZXT HALE82 650W Power Supply, from OverClock Intelligence Agency:
    80 PLUS Verification and Testing Report

    Back on topic:

    Turn off the switch on the PSU.
    Un-plug the PSU from the wall for a few minutes.
    Check all your connections, again.
    Then plug it back into the wall.
    Turn on the switch on the PSU.
    And, try to start the system.

    If plugged into a surge suppressor/powerstrip or any other device, make sure it is turned on and has power.

    Thanks for the replies! Tried the paperclip test but it failed at that so I just sent it back for a replacement.

    I should have taken that further as some PSUs need a load to turn on. IE a 12V fan or something small works. Oh well, its for the RMA department to figure out now;)
