Do you know how many watts I would need to run a i7-860, GTX 670 sc 4gb, and a D5 water pump? Should a Rosewill Hive 550 modular be enough? I don't really want to spend 110 for the Rosewill capstone 650 at the moment but I will if I have to.

Sure a power supply can die just at the spur of the moment but I like to really figure out what I did wrong.Can I ask what motherboard you are using?
I was doing the paper clip test with everything unplugged. The only thing that was plugged in was my D5 water pump. After it died I tried the paper clip test and with the power supply hooked up to my mobo. I'm currently using the MSI-7613.
