Well My two week old evga gtx 780 sc acx was working fine playing games with no issues, I had overclocked it alittle and bumped up the fan speed on it. turned the computer on and walked away I come back and the computer was off. So i turned it back on and it posted and then the graphics card popped and blew alittle fire and I shut the computer down Instantly
I know the car is done I've already started the rma but I'm curious if the card could have just failed or if the power supply overvolted it?
I put in a spare card I had laying around a gtx 470, and the computer booted just fine. But it only uses two 6 pin power adapters not a 6 and 8 Its got me kind of concerned.
My setup is a i7 firstname.lastname@example.org on a EVGA FTW3 6gigs 1600mhz 240 samsung evo ssd 2x7200 250gb hdds in raid 0 corsair hx1050 thats maybe a year old.

I would start taking components out of the case and examine them carefully for damage.
You can take each component and give it the sniff test.
