I put it all together yesterday & fired it up. It came on & the fans were working but then I noticed smoke coming out the top fan & smelled like burnt plastic. I immediately turned off power to the psu & unplugged it.
I looked at every wire & I couldn't not find one damaged at all.
Could this be a bad piece of hardware? I'm not sure where the smoke originated but seemed to come from HDD cage area but maybe not. Haven't touched it since.

Since its AZZA, could be a bad fan. What brand fan do they use?
Do you have a power supply tester?
Think I found what burnt.
I had a front panel usb connector plugged into the MB speaker, oops. Burnt out some of the wire.
