Last night, my other PC (Pentium D 3.4GHz, “Review PC” in my sig) went South with a loud pop, tripping the RCD on the circuit breaker in my house (which is a first in 10 years hehe).
Now, I suspect the PSU, but the thing is, there was no smells or smoke or sparks or anything like that - and this is odd because I’ve had two (crappy Q-Tec) PSUs die on me, and both just never booted up again after shutdown.
Any chances it could be something else? I’ve checked the mobo for blown caps etc and all checks out.
The PSU in question is a 350W Fortron (FSP) PSU. I’ve been reading the Extreme Overclocking PSU forum all evening, and general consensus there is that FSP’s don’t usually take anything with them, so I’m hoping
I thought I’d ask before I go out and get a replacement PSU tomorrow…thanks in advance
