My PC wouldn't reboot, so on tinkering around I removed 2 cooling fans, an airflow fan over the DIMMs, and an outtake fan, now it reboots.

I run a Windows 7 Home Premium (x64) system, a 3.20 gigahertz Intel Core2 Extreme, a ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2, 4 GB DDR2 800 Kingston HyperX, a Creative SB X-Fi, and recently upgraded from a Seagate 320GB 16MB Cache, to a WDC WD1002FBYS-02A6B0 32 Cache 1 TB.

The rebooting problem started with the installation of the new HDD, and the question is, was this because of a lack of power supply?

My PSU, is a Silencer 750 Watt, this is 750W Continuous (825W) peak.

The Silencer 750 is a very good power supply, and as long as it's working properly ( sounds like it might not be ) is more than enough power for your system specs , including the fans you removed.
