    Issue is that after shutdown the system does not turn off. Fans still spin lights stay on cdrom still opens and closes.

    Have updated BIOS, Changed power settings within Win8.1.

    Changed out PSU for an EVGA 650W Gold PSU from my system and starts up and shuts down without an iussue. So i think Thermaltake PSU stuffed.

    Exchanged Thermatake PSU for a new one from shop where I purchased it and put into system only to have this same issue.

    So is it possible that the two thermaltake PSU are duds or cut my losses and chuck in a 750W PSU?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You could fit the Thermaltake(s) in your own PC to test them.

    Hi Fingy,

    I would recommend doing a stress test and reporting your temperatures here. Also, you could make sure that all your components are firmly in place and that there are no burn marks or swollen captivators on your motherboard. Another thing you could try would be to reset your CMOS battery. Also, once you take it out, hold the power button for about a minute to make sure there is no left over charge. Running a malware scan wouldnÂ’t hurt, even tho malware is unlikely the cause.
    If the problems persist and you are using the PC for work you could consider taking it to an expert locally.

    Hope it helps,

    Cheers for the responses I have found the issue which ended up being the HDLED + lead on the header pin. Yes it was on the one with the + but for giggles I decided to turn each connector around one at a time and it fixed it.
