RM850x - Faint but noticible foul smell

A few weeks ago I ordered an RM850x through Bestbuy, and before I even got it into the computer I noticed a very foul smell, the same kind of smell I got when one of my old CX750m's finally overheated and burnt up. Its the strongest near where the power cord is connected, and while its nowhere near as bad as said old CXm, but I am still worried. I am in the process of building a new computer, and I don't want to connect it to a couple grand in components if its going to just brick everything.

 

I have sent a ticket into Corsair a few days ago, but haven't heard anything back yet.

Just hope thats all it is. Ever since I came into a room full of smoke and the smell of burnt electronics several years ago this smell gives me great anxiety. With my new i7 arriving next week I will be all ready to set up a new system and would rather not have to delay for several weeks while I try to source another one. Edited by Horonelius
