650tx (burning smell)

It has been almost a week now, since my 650tx just died on me while i was playing MTWII(medieval total war 2):(:. My pc just went off and it started smelling like burned rubber.

I tried the paper clip test, didn't do anything.

I actually requested RMA before testing but I recieved an shipping label already.

 

I trust Corsair. I think it's great company, I hope they send me a new 650tx ps.:sunglasse

Could power outages or surge might have caused this?

 

What are the chances that my mobo or hd is damaged also?

 

 

thx for the feedback:laughing:

Its usually difficult to speculate on these types of things, because anything is possible. I would say its unlikely that any other components would be damaged, but I wouldn't rule it out completely. Same goes for a power outage or power surge. Technically if you have the PSU plugged into a surge protector it should not happen, but its still possible. Either way lets get the PSU replaced, and let us know if you have any more problems!
