Power Supply Fan not turning on - New Build

Power Supply Fan not turning on - New Build
I assume that's a death sentence no? I tried an out of case test with all my components, and the power supply looked like it didn't do a thing. Didn't smell anything. The fan didn't turn on. Nothing on the motherboard lit up. I even changed the main power cable with one from my old PC. Nothing. Unplugged all the components and tried again. Nothing.

It's a SeaSonic Platinum-1000 1000W 80 PLUS Platinum Modular. I tried switching it on / off several times to "reset" it.. still no life from it.

What luck. 2 weeks to get this stuff in, and now this happens. Sad

1.) If you were me, would you go out to get a store bought one to continue testing? Or wait the 1 week to wait for the whole exchange process to happen again ( I do have a year warranty on the machine).

My only concern is I will wait one week and find something else defective. For a weekend project, turning into a month long one.

2.) If I do decided wait for exchange, how should I store my mobo? I have the siverlight heatsync attached, so not willing to unattach that. Should I screw it into the case? So I just leave it covered somewhere?

Thanks much
