Strange smell from PSU

Hello! My comuter is half a year old and from the first day it has a strange smell from the PSU.
when you just enter the room you can smell it.
My system is:

PSU: Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus 600W
Case: Cooler Master 690
E7500 @ 3.6
Freezer 7 pro rev. 2
EP43-UD3L
Corsair 2X2 GB 800 MHZ CL4
Gigabyte Radeon HD 4870 1 GB
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit OEM

well I know this PSU isnt a very good quality, I even thought about changing it somtime,
Thought Im afraid My OEM windows will be out of date if Ill do so.
Please help!

  1. Changing your power supply won't affect your operating system.
  2. Ok thanks. So do you think that this is the right thing to do? or ,maybe thought there is somthing other that I can do? or either maybe the smell is normal? or should I go to the PC store and ask for realization for the warranty?
  3. I would have sent or taken it back immediately instead of waiting 6 months.
  4. OK thanks! I hope I will go to the store tomorrow.
  5. :) what sort of smell? burning, hot plastic, or just like new stuff? just curious...
