If the PSU does not boot, can you unplug the 24 (20+4) pin of your mobo and short circuit the green wire with a black one (assumin there are many black ones in the connector, they are the ground ones)
Just use a piece of cupper wire/paperclip to make the connection.
Don't worry, you wont get electrocuted nor will the PSU explode
In stead of pressing the power button, you make the connection
So if it does not spin up the fan, you're pretty sure it's the psu...
Definitely not, 660W is more than what my system uses. I haven't checked it myself but I have researched a long time before buying it. My video card is running at stock speeds. My CPU is overclocked to 4.2GHz. The first time I had this issue, my CPU was running at stock speed, so I doubt it's the overclock.
Could be the PSU giving in, I'll have to wait and see if it happens again. But I'd like to know whether it's actually the PSU before I send it back to the manufacturer. Could be the motherboard, who knows. I have no way of determining that. I know, it's impossible for you guys to say it either since the PC is not actually in front of you. I was hoping I could somehow test it or maybe someone had it happen before.

Also, hold down the power button on your case for 20 seconds & check.....
I'll try to fix the wires, push them in firmly, maybe something is loose. Although, again, if something was loose, I doubt it would turn on using the switch in the back.
I tried holding down the power button for 10 seconds, nothing happened. Used the power button on the motherboard, again nothing. I checked the front panel connectors, everything was fine.

I installed it last year February. It's not old old, but you never know. Something might be broken.
EDIT: I am sorry for doing this, especially since you folks are nice enough to try and help, but I would appreciate it if we could keep this on-topic. I feel like I can't keep up with the thread.Edited by Sevada88 - 5/20/13 at 2:01pm
