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.

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:
Built by Seasonic, and offering a full continuous 650W load, the HALE82 650W can easily handle a system even at 85-90% of its rated capacity, while still holding within +/- .01V variance at full load.
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;)
