Windows 7: New problem - Not getting a POST beep

Don't say that, I'll end up back on here in 6 months complaining about my new Ez Cool PSU haha.

Thanks for your help, and any help I may receive from here on in. Going to leave the topic unsolved till a new PSU is fitted and I can confirm

You have a relatively low spec system that doesn't use much power.

What PSUs can you find from your suppliers in the 300 to 450 watt range, from these brands, in your price range: Seasonic, Antec, Corsair, XFX?

EZ Cool is a fake name of some kind. I'll guarantee you it wasn't made by "EZ Cool". Another EZ Cool may work fine, but why increase your risk unnecessarily?

This XFX is likely made by Seasonic and would be fine:

Apologies, I misread your first post. Just checked the NB and SB heat sinks and they both seem pretty tight, no play in either of them at all really
