HX 850 Burning Smell


Recommended Posts

My HX850 is a little over a year old now and I get an intermittent electrical burning smell coming from it. It seems to be getting worse and does not need to be under load. I decided to post as I'm sitting 10 feet from it and can smell it (to the point of where I'm checking to make sure I'm not burning the place down somewhere else).


I have a pretty solid understanding of how a power supply works but am by no means an expert and am not sure what course of action I should take. Any suggestions would be great.




Edit: I should note the system runs fine with this going on and I don't notice any discrepancies in HWMonitor pertaining to voltage or hardware temps. I'm mostly worried about my hardware getting fried or my system being down (I use it for practically everything).
