ok so check it out, i got it running (shockingly) and it powered up, i flashed the bios, and when it got to loading windows it restarted... i thought ok... not enough power on the 400w to load the windows drivers... alright. so i bought a 500w.. plug it in. same problem as i had at first.. wont post. checked all the cables. blah blah blah... cpu wont power... i have the 8 pin power connector on this new psu. and it still wont do the trick.. what am i doing wrong?
