Power Supply recommendations?

Hey Guys just recently built a pc 2 days ago, I think my power supply overloaded, I don't overclock or anything or run anything crazy but i guess it died.

Is my parts list, know any good power supply recommendations? I'm really in bad downer mood.

That power supply stopped working after 2 days, my tech friend said it most likely overloaded. I ran a paper clip test and it failed, kinda sucks but I can get a new one if needed.

Does it have a warranty?

If it still does try getting a new one from Antec.

It does but I only spent 50$ on it and now its 75$ so the one i bought could of been refurb so I think a different brand might suit me. I just hope they don't fix my broken one and send the same one back.

I only said that because it is a good power supply and there is no reason to pay for a new one if you could just send it back, but it is your decision.

Prices for power supplies usually jump up and down.

Do you have a budget for a new power supply?

I do have enough for another one but I'll wait to see what customer service from antec tells me.

Tried a paper clip test and the power supply fan wouldn't spin, I guess I got a defective one.

just return it or RMA. They will send another unit.

That is a good PSU and as pureblackfire said NO way the PSU overloaded with your build.

It stopped working after 3 days, must be a defective one. This be the first time I see a power supply go in under a week.
