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.
