I found out what the problem was. Turned out it was bad manufacturing. The PSU was manufactured wrong. The 20 pin plug turned out to have only 19 pins.

So i took apart the PSU and noticed that there was a bare wire. I traced it down to the plug fixed the plug and boom it started right up!

Yea, i ordered almost everything from TD.com I didnt have a problem.

I looked them up on the betterbusinessbureau and i looked up Newegg too.

They both had complaints but in the end they both were corrected. I think when people complain about them theyre just too lazy.

My guess is the people were too lazy for a RMA.
