What about warranty guys?

Am I entitled of everything? After all I did overclock.
and if the PSU did kill other components, am I entitled to get new ones with the warranty?

EDIT: No sign of black spots, fire, stench, or any other kind of blown up components.

Uhh, do not say you overclocked, just say you were running you PC normally when it blew up, this happens extremly rarely but it still happens. But if you overclocked, don't tell them or you won't be covered at all.
Normally you get a warranty from each component for a year, but again, I would if I were you get a cheap power supply and try to see if your PC boots, if not, then you know some other component is broken. And they could even charge you restocking fee if you send everything back. So that's why troubleshoot components one by one. If you get a PS, then you can use your motherboard to troubleshoot with all the beeping codes corresponding to a specific error.

take the PSU out. Get a new one.

You shouldn't have even turned that thing on with that PSU...

Get a new, more rigid PSU and see if it still works first.

Thats only in PSUs with overload protection, something yours probably didnt have. Most no-name PSUs rated wattage is actually their peak wattage, not their max sustainable wattage. A 500 watt no-name PSU will probably have a max sustained output of 400W-450W. Running at its peak output will overstress the components and cause them to eventually fail, sometimes catostrophically, as in your case.

The PSU should be your #1 investment when it comes to building a PC. The entire system depends on it. Higher quality PSU manufacturers like PC Power & Cooling will rate their PSUs according to the maximum sustained output, instead of the peak output. For expample, my PSU is rated at 510W, but its peak output its 650W.

I will go there and ask for a replacement PSU.
I really haven't got the cash to spare to buy new parts. Why else would I have gotten a Pentium D in the first place?

I would have gotten a decent PSU off ebay which would cost much less, but with the delivery costs to my country it simply isn't worth it.

This really sucks. even if the warranty covers it all, still the whole purpose of buying this cheap 805 was for overclocking. now I really won't feel comfortable going anywhere higher than 3.4ghz, which is a moderate OC at best.

I urgently needed a new PC, but I would have waited some more for core2duo prices to drop, or atleast had gotten an AMD AM2 instead.

You guys take me for a clueless newbie. Not that I don't appreciate your explanations, I do, but you have to understand that getting this machine was with a VERY tight budget.

ColorsIT isn't generic. It isn't well known and obviously it is CRAP. However, like I said guys - It was due to the fact I was tight in budget.

The sad thing is that if I was able to squeeze another 100$, I could have gotten an E6300 instead of the 805. Even with a crappy PSU, I could have used the E6300 at stock, and it would still come in par with the 805 at 3.8ghz. If I overclocked it to 2ghz, which isn't too dangerous with a generic PSU, I would have beaten any OCEd P-D 805 out there.

But.. You dont seem to realize that most of us here would be too scared to run a STOCK computer with a PSU like that...

And make sure you have a surge protector also.
