New computer shuts off. Wont power up.

So I finally built my new computer and its been working for about 4 days. I was in the middle of a game but then... the power shuts off. I try turning it back on, but literally nothing happens. (The PSU passed the paperclip test). Also the case pins at the bottom right feel a little hot, is this normal?

  1. Have you cleared the CMOS?

    well i tried clearing it and nothing happened. plus its probably a heat problem cause the bottom right hasn't cooled down in a while.

    I'm not clear what you mean by "case pins at the bottom right"?

    Have you double checked if they are all plugged in correctly? If they are, they should not be causing any problems.

    Well they are in correctly but the POWER SW's pin has a weird hole in it tearing the black case off. Is this ok?

    That should not matter. The power switch is just completing a circuit, it either works or it doesn't.
