Sweeping the problem under the rug doesn't make the problem go away.
@OP, overcurrent protection was kicking in with your BFG power supply. Thats why you had to completely power cycle the PSU before it would let you turn it on again. If you tick a paper click into a 12v pin and another in a ground pin and turn on the PC, it'll do the same behavior.
