Hello, sorry to bring up an "old" thread. But I also have a problem with an Antec PSU Neo HE 550W. After a bit of searching, I found that ANTEC PSu's have stability problem with the 5v rail: http://www.pjrc.com/about/rambling/antec.html
Although this is a compatibility problem with Asus MBs, this might as well be it.
Antec says it has been fixed in the later revisions, but mine is a rev4 and got into trouble after 7-8 months of usage.
The symptoms are the computer won't start, even though the MB's LED is on.
I will stay away from Antec PSUs from now on.:mad:
Hope it was helpful...

Forgive my pityful English...

here is my update..
my old PSU was the antec true power trio 650, the start of my problems is when i started haveing a flicker/studder with my 3d graphics.. http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=34232
this is a thread i started to help my with this problem. first the fan only 4 pin apex died and then the main power cooling fan stopped.. but this didnt happen untill i replaced every piece of hardwear in my system.. one by one with many tests for each new piece.. i talked to a tech for antec and he said that any defect or power surge will effect every piece of hardwear that is attached to the PSU.. so i replaced the power supply with a very nice cooler master 850 pro..nice.. and it gets even better.. there warrenty is now 5 years and they will also replace any hardwear that the PSU is attached if they are damaged by the PSU... real nice..
anyways, i still have this flicker and i sent the GPU to BFG and they RMA tested it and they couldnt reproduce this flicker and said it was OK and sent it back to me....:banghead:
so antec for a PSU, stay away from this product.. go cooler master..
