    Not enough wattage for water cooling?

    CPU: AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 3.6GHz (3.9GHz/4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core Desktop Processor
    Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
    Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
    GPU: MSI N570GTX Twin Frozr II GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
    Hard Drive: Hitachi GST HDS721050CLA362 (0F10381) 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
    Case: Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, comes with Three Fans-1x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1x Top 140mm Fan, 1x Rear 120mm Fan, option Fans-2x Side 120mm Fan
    Power Supply: Rosewill Stallion Series RD700 700W ATX12V V2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply

    Instead of a heatsink, the cpu came with a water cooling system, and when I tried to plug it in to run from the power supply, the system runs for a second and shuts off. Without the water cooler, everything goes on and stays on, any suggestions on what to do?

    What water cooler is it? 700W is enough for any system it would have come with, unless there's something wrong with the power supply or the connection.

    It's not a very good PSU but should still have more than enough power. Sounds like something is wrong with the Heat sink, do you not have support on this system? (it's pre-built, right?)

    You still have something plugged into CPU fan socket in the motherboard even with the water cooler thingy hooked into PSU? It's standard safety feature of motherboards that if the CPU fan is not detected it will not boot.

    If this is not the problem, then either the cable from PSU or the water cooler thingy is defective and probably shorts out the PSU.

    Trolling should be.
