The PSU works fine, its new and i've tested the voltages myself, the cpu fan is ok as i've hooked that directly to the psu and it works (but it doesnt spin when connected to mobo).
The hdd works.. just not in this machine because nothing does.
Edit: BTW the PSU does not turn on from soft power on the mobo, I have checked the switch for continuity and its ok, however when i disconnect the PSU and hook it to a testing kit it works fine.
