Computer being weird

Hello, I have a really strange problem and I'll try to explain it as good as I can.

i5 3570k
2x4gb corsair vengeance 1600mhz
msi 7870 tf3
silverstone strider plus 750w
intel 330 180gb
1tb seagate barracuda
fractal design define r3

Okay so to the explaining. I basicly can't turn on my computer if I have left the - power chord in / power stripe on - when I turned off the computer. I need to turn the power stripe off or remove the power chord for 5-10 seconds and then plug it back in / turn it back on. And then it start up normally.

I bought the parts 2 months ago and built it myself. I was carefull when I built it and I've built computers before. ESD wrist strap and motherboard on a cardboard piece when I mounted the CPU and RAM.

Any ideas? PSU problem? Motherboard? Help :??:

Are you running any overclocks?

It does sounds kind of like a PSU problem, you may still be able to lodge an RMA claim if you only bought it two months ago.

Sounds like PSU issue to me. If possible test the PSU in another PC.

No, I'm not running any overclocks right now.
I will try the PSU on another computer and see if it works better there.
