PSU smells like plasticity?


Recommended Posts

Hi! How's everybody? I have a question and sorry for my bad English.

I bought a new PSU in my country (RM850X) sealed and when I installed it on my pc, it emits like a plastic smell...

This is normal? I installed it about two hours ago!

If it's normal, how long should the smell last?

Greetings!

New PSUs will often emit a smell which can be due to flux, adhesives or other materials used in manufacturing.

This will typically go away with time and use, however there is no exact time frame.

 

As long as the PSU does not smell like it's burning, there should be nothing to worry about.

Thank you Perd! ♥
