have you checked that the AC cable is attached well to the psu?

and you can open the case and look inside and see if you find any burnt components ( like caps example )

and is your cpu 3570k or 3570?

Would think psu died. Google paper clip test.

Aerocool is not a top quality brand, particularly for stressful situations.
I might suspect the psu.
Can you test with a known good psu?
You should only need about 550w.

Nope. Xfx, corsair, seasonic. Google johnnyguru for reviews.

It depends on the model.
Here is a handy list of PSU's organized by quality tiers.
If you can, find a tier 1 or 2 unit.

Your problem may not be the psu. See if you can verify that is the problem before buying.

For a budget psu, Corsair CX series is OK.
But you can't go wrong with Seasonic.

Fixed.

Corsair PSU quality varies widely from unit to unit, even in the same model line (for example, the CX430 is a great unit (built by superflower), but the CX500 is mediocre at best.

Seasonic is really the only manufacturer there. XFX and PC P&C units are both made by Seasonic.

Like Geofelt said, your problem may not be the PSU.

Borrow a PSU to test in your system. If it powers up, then go ahead and get a new PSU. If not, then you have a problem with one or more other components.

If you PSU actually failed, instead of just the internal fuse melting, then the PSU may have taken other components out with it.

If there's no PSU you can borrow, then I'd reccommend buying a corsair CX430 to test out with ($25 after mail in rebate). It's handy to have a backup PSU anyway, as I'm sure you can relate.

good luck!

To put it bluntly, raptor bad. I wouldn't use that to power my toothbrush.
