ok, here's the latest - I've just received a replacement power supply, plugged it in and still no luck. To make sure its not down to anything condictuver touching where it shouldnt I've taken the motherboard out now and have it on the glass surface of my desk. Plugged in the power supply and have the same problem.

@Troggy no smells, weird marks, burning or anything odd. The system is super cool and has been since I put it together so it's a (worrying) mystery. I've raised an RMA with ebuyer and will try returning it to them. unfortunately I dont have access to spare power supplies (who are these pple who keep spares lying around?!?) :-)

@Troggy - yes the CPU fan and all three case fans switch on - until the supply cuts out after about 2-3 seconds
