kefka90 Posted October 29, 2010 Share Posted October 29, 2010 Hi, I built a new system about 9 months ago with a tx650 psu. It's been working fine until a couple of days ago, when the computer randomly shut off and started up again. I assumed at the time it was probably just a quick power cut or something, and thought nothing of it, but again that evening there was a popping noise and it went off, seemed to try to boot up again but couldn't, the fans and lights just flashed on for a moment then went back off. I unplugged everything and opened up the case - I found the psu was very hot to the touch, and there was a slight burning smell coming from the rear vent. I let it cool off for the night and in the morning I disconnected all my HDDs, gpu etc, and booted into the bios - the temperature of my cpu was normal, but the psu was still getting very hot, and within an hour of sitting in the bios it shut off again with the same pop and burning smell as before. The psu was powering a core i5, 4890, 3x7200rpm hdds, and 2x2gb ddr3 ram, which to my knowledge should easily be handled by a 650tx. I requested an RMA yesterday morning (I'm in Ireland) using the online form, but I haven't gotten a reply back yet, so I figured it couldn't hurt to make a post here and get some input on the problem, Thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
