3 Attachment(s)
i have old PSU i think one of the top class
but from some time my PC start reset it self especially when i try play some games
i hin bios i spotted a warning on voltage
3,3v drop to 2,960V
when i open the PSU (i m not a electronic specialist)
but i spot one of the capacitor is quit bigger then the rest and stick in the radiar abow
i try make some insulation between capacitor and radiator it work for short time
but i think the capacitor just die
my question: if i change this capacitor the PSU can work like before or it could be something else
i m not sure which part in PSU i responsible for 3,3v

intel i7 980x
asus rampage 3 Extreme
nvidia 780ti SLI

time for a new PSU, usually when a capacitor pops there is a lot of collateral damage

the new models of PSU are 80 PLUS gold or better and will pay themselves in power savings rather quickly
