new build all complete and bam no power from PSU.All i hear is a super low pitch wine and very very soft beeping noise.You have to get your ear right next to the power supply to hear the very very soft whine and soft beeps.

Is it dead?thought i would ask the pros.

real bummed at this point.

Are you sure its your PSU? None of the case fans spin up, no hard drives noises, nothing?

Interesting, do you have a spare PSU from another system you can use to see if your system boots?

Here's a but of info for your brother Seasonic actually makes many of Corsair's power supplies. Seasonic is one of the best brands in power supplies. But it is still possible its DOA but without further info I wouldn't jump to conclusions. What are the rest of the system specs? Have you tried it outside of the case? Have you double checked everything is properly connected?

Assemble the system outside the case, on the motherboard box or big anti static bag. Only use 1 stick of ram and the Intel graphics.

Quickest way to test a PSU

1) Remove it from the case
2) Take it to a socket away from the PC, but don't plug it in
3) Run a wire from the green cord to a black cord inside the ATX connector
4) Plug it in

If the PSU is working, the fans will kick in.
