hmm perhaps you got a bad power supply? that would be the only reason a brand new power supply would do that. I have the same power supply and it has been great. I would take it back to wherever you got it from and get a new one.

Are you sure you're using the right setting for your country? It might be switched to a different position.. check to make sure that the voltage is good. Otherwise, yeah, bad psu. Send it back in for another one. Btw, off topic, but I got a thermaltake psu recently too, a silent power 430W. The cables are way long, but it's a good psu. Thermaltake shouldn't be performing like that, but, hey, mistakes happen...

And don't find out if u have the right settings for ur country by testing it.
The exact same thing happened to my friend. Well originally he had the right settings, but the psu just didn't work. So he turned the swich, pressed the power button. I didn't know what would happen, and neither did he.
BOOOOOOOOOM!!
Seriously, and it wasn't any small sound, it was like a god damn flashband going off (ofcouse without the über-bright flash)
And no need to tell u the psu was busted, and so was the mobo.
But he got it all fixed with warrenty.

What's the right voltage/current setting on a PSU for me? What determines it? Where you live? If so, I'm in NY.
