The_Doctor89 Posted October 20, 2010 Share Posted October 20, 2010 I just purchased a new Corsair TX650w psu for my system. Opened the box, installed the pus and everything was working fine for about 20 minutes when i heard a pop and got the burning electrical smell coming from my computer. Quickly turning off the power I opened the case back up and didn't see anything wrong. I removed the power supply and noticed that a chip on the mother board had blown. This was a system that had been up and running for a while with no problems until I replaced the psu which had gone bad. I have given the entire rig up as a loss and am at this point just looking for what i should do now. Thanks in advance And for reference the attached picture shows the blown chip.
