Check all the connections, if you crossed somethign a capacitor could be charging and then cutting the power, Also double check that it's not in contact with the back of the case, or anywhere else that may be grounding or shorting it... Jsut eb therough

check stuff like exposed pcb shorting on the case... my el cheapo fan controller has the pcb exposed on the bottom and it can very easily short out on the front panel of the case...

 

300W generic? can you swap in a psu that isn't pure dog ship to see if it IS the psu? might be that...

im pretty sure its the PS so hes gonna buy a new one with my awsome Resellers license thingy so it will be cheap, today i built a whole system with an 80gig WD, 256mb of 2700 and a 2.4 celeron for a whole 275$
