Sounds like a possible short/bad connection. Make sure everything is fastened securely. Since you just installed your WCing it is entirely possible you bumped something loose.

Try what everyone else said... check cables, the connnections, etc.

If nothing works, is there a way you can test the PSU in another computer?

its a grounding issue, i assume you pulled the mobo when you installed the WCing and it happened then. so take your time go through all the steps of remounting the mobo and connecting all the cables and it will fire right up. BTW 500w is plenty
