Ok, so as the title implies, I upgraded my computer today, and now it won't fire up.
I installed a 2nd GPU (MSI HD5770), and swapped the stock cpu cooler and fan for a big ass cooler master 212 with 2 120mm fans.

I've looked back inside the case to see if I forgot to plug any wires in.

My theory is its just too much for the PSU (Seasonic 520W)

Here are my specs pre-modded: 2.9 Ghz quad core i5, Gigabyte mb, MSI HD5770 gpu, 8GB DDR3, 3 SATA 6 HDDs, 1 old IDE HDD, 2 opticals, and 6 120mm case fans.

Whadaya think, the ol' psu not up to snuff?

Have you tried running the bios setup to see if it is recognized? Depending on your bios press F2 about 5 times after you turn the power on.

I could be wrong, but I get the impression that it won't turn on at all.

Try unplugging the new hardware and see if that fixes it. You can run for a short time with no fans and not damage anything.

You are correct adsm, nuthin happens. I removed the GPU, no dice. I'll try unplugging the case fans. I'd rather keep the cpu one

Odd...I just went over to the computer and a couple of USB acc were lit up. Pushed the button and the sucker fired up. I'd say the GPU is to blame.

Just popped the 2nd gpu in and everything is working. Loose wiring is the only thing I can think of. Thanks for the help
