✔ Best Answer
We need more information. Is this replacing an older power supply that was apparently giving you trouble? Is this a new build? Has the computer booted before? Are you sure that you plugged in all of the important connectors including the 20/24pin motherboard connector, the 4/8pin CPU connector, the hard drive, PCIe connector if applicable, etc? Note that there are times when another connector like the PCIe connector will fit where the CPU connector belongs but is not correct. Note the direction of the 115V/230V switch if present, make sure it is unplugged if you need to change it (the correct supply voltage should be visible with the incorrect one mostly hidden).
Please include detailed system specs, all details above, and include all you have tried.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

New build, i built it about a week ago, had worked fine for 6 days, properly shut down my computer, unplugged everything so i could move the tower to another room, plugged the power cord into the power supply, hit the switch, and i get nothing but spinning fans and a clicking noise, the light next to the Ethernet port lights up when it clicks,

8g ram
4 tb hdd

I have unplugged everything connected to the mobo, reconnected everything, still getting the clicking out of the p.s.

Since you said you moved everything, I suspect there was some sort of static discharge. Like rubbing your feet on the carpet & then touching a metal doorknob? Try stripping the tower down to the absolute minimum to troubleshoot.

Figured it out, the main 24 pin connector from the p.s. to the mobo wasn't seating properly, the clip on the side of the connector wasn't actually clipping it in place, which resulted in that connector pulling out slightly. Thanks for the assistance again people, highly appreciated
