I recently got a Silverstone Zues 650 watt psu(very load) and every thing was running fine till i added 2 WD 300GB sata hdds now when i shutdown the pc the PSU wont turn off and the same happens when i try to restart it. It get to the point where the psu is ment to turn off and then just stays there. Other wise everything works great.

X2 3800+
A8N SLI deluxe
4x512 corsair xms pc 3200 2.5,3,3,7
Sound Blaster Audigy 2 value
36GB raptor os, (2xseagate 200GB sata, 2xWD 250GB IDE, 2xWD 250 GB sata, 2x WD 300GB sata) in 4x Raid 0 arrays

In windows under display setting/screensaver/power-->advanced tab how do you have your computer set when you press the power button.
Also you may have a power switch going bad as well.

its set to shutdown so i dont think that is the problem
i think its a windows problem cos it restarts when you change the bios settings like it always used to but just not when you shutdown the system from windows.

i will try removing the hdds but that is not really a long term solution cos i have used all the molexs so i cant change the ones its plugged into or anything.

by power switch do you mean the one in the case or on in the psu intself.
