I had similar but not same trouble with H50. The code told me to replace 
either power supply or mainboard. Replacing power supply with anther, or 
running 2 power supplies at once did not cure things. When I opened the 
box to try it without different parts unplugged, it always worked 
without any problems, even when I put in al the components. This gave 
hope and I gave a deep thought about what the error code suggested  -and 
found it. It was broken insulation on the PSU->mainboard cable - when 
case is closet, it short ciruits aganst the top.
