Rick, I don't follow you about the part of the fancy red diode lights. do they get their power from the power supply? if it happens again, no fans, no lights, I would try a new PSU 1st or buy a PSU checker and test it. I keep going to buy one but a buddy of mine has one and I use it. speaking of my buddy, his hiper PSU finally bit the dirt monday. it lasted a year longer than my hiper did (same model).
