I shall give the most detailed run down of events as possible which ran up to my issue.
I was playing Battlefield 3, everything was running smoothly fine fps etc.
I had a cpu temperature monitor running which told me my cpu was over 20 deg c. under reaching critical levels at the time of playing.
Soon after playing my computer stopped entirely, refused to reboot and a funky burning smell emitted from my computer ( the whereabouts I could not distinctly pin point) but given the evidence I assumed that my PSU had burnt out especially considering I could not power up the machine after the incident.
Skip forward a bit and I have purchased a new more powerful PSU (750 watt as opposed to the previous 700 watt just in case that was a critical issue).
Being a certified mong I had messed around with the cabling on the motherboard with little idea what I was actually doing and when it came to connect my new PSU I connected everything which I thought it needed however I was once again greeted with the failure to boot up.
The point of this thread is to pin point whether the failure to start up is due to my incompetence with connecting my PSU or another component gone bust.
I have provided an album of some pictures of the cabling inside my computer, if anything is amiss or wrong please inform me.
motherboard connections - Imgur
GPU : EVGA 570

Any help is greatly appreciated.
