Post Sigh my pc died.
I think the power supply died in my PC. Atleast I hope that is what died. My friend and I were watching a movie from my pc to my Xbox and all of a sudden the movie stoped. So I'm thinking WTF lol. So I go to my pc and it was off. So I turned it back on it started up loaded windows then as soon as I tried to run something it froze then turned off again. No blue screen nothing. Then I smelled something was burnt. I felt my heatsink it wasn't even very hot. So I smell it didn't smell like it was burnt just hot. I smelled the power supply and the smell got stronger. The burnt smell that is. Does that sound like this is my Power supply. I hope it is cause I have a 3 year warranty on it. Also the pc wont power up at all now. When I try to turn on the PC the CPU fan twitches but nothing comes on. And it only twitches once. I have to take the power supply out then put it back in and it will do it again. But only once.

DO NOT FUCKING TURN IT ON AGAIN....

Sheesh... If the power supply burned out you can fry the Mobo by continually trying to get the burnt PSU to
power it up...

Pull it out and drop in a new one..

Antec sent me a message back to send in a RMA request. So hopefully when I get my Power Supply back this will fix my issues.
