Something is shorting my new build?

Hello this is my first build and im very confused..
Since this was my first time I wanted to make sure that all the pieces were compatible etc, so I built one of the recommended systems in this thread: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/269162-31-recommended-builds-usage(I built the first one under Gamer).

Much to my delight everything was running smoothly, I installed win7, played some tf2, watched a movie etc.

All is good for one night until the next morning I wake up, hit power, the power LED flashes once and the fans do 1 weak spin and thats it.
After that one fan spin and led flash it wont turn on at all.
If I turn off the PSU and back on and hit power itll do the LED flash and the fan spin.

What can I do?
Any Ideas as to what is going on?

Thanks in advance.

  1. Read this http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261145-31-read-posting-boot-problems try the steps see if that helps with your problem
  2. Thanks for the reply.
    I checked that thread.

    I started removing parts then trying to boot to see what would happen.
    Removed RAM and still same weak fan spin then dead.
    Removed RAM AND Vid. Card. and a weak spin but now my mobo LEDs(power and reset) went off.
    Now it wont even do a weak fan spin and the LEDs are out.

    Did I just kill my mobo?
    Ugh...

    EDIT: It seems that if I wait 5 mins then retry to boot the mobo LEDs will flash and the fans will do an even weaker spin.
    Maybe its the PSU?


    EDIT 2: I think I better post in the other section, it seems theres more trouble shooting questions there.
    Im sorry for the trouble mods, please delete.
