That really sucks man. To be honest i'm shocked that an antec would break so soon. Are you sure it put out enough power for the system? Antec True Power PSU's are better if you can get your money back.
But yeah that really sucks man.
I can't say for sure if you'll have to pay the restocking fee but i personally don't think you should have to. It's kinda messed up if you have to since it's not really your fault it went bad. My advice is to tell them that you're going elsewhere if you have to pay restocking fees that aren't your fault to begin with.
that's great continu. my superpi times with and without a 3.2ghz OC are roughly this if it helps:
3.2Ghz OC: 19 sec
2.13 Stock: 26-28 sec (offhand)
anyways i'm showing you this because that the top performance the processor can do. I'm guessing your encoding results will be similiar to that ratio. good luck.
