See, that's the problem, the 5970 is fine. It booted perfectly, and displayed the image perfectly, it was fine! I gave it a long once over with a cold hairdryer blast before I used it, and left it overnight.

The only thing I noticed before I started, was that one of the 92mm's were a little unbalanced, but I shrugged it off. Once I'd booted to desktop, I noticed the same 92mm stop, then the burning smell come from the PSU. I then unplugged it, then tried it just jumping the 24Pin, after that, it tripped the breaker.
Perhaps it was just a fluke, and I should try again?
