About 4 months ago, I built myself a new computer for the bones up. I got all of the parts together during the first three months, and after it was all built, I had the computer working a little less then one month. During that one month stretch, one day I left my pc on while I went to do something and came back to find it dead. I figured out it was my power supply (see specs below), so I sent it in and got a replacement. About a week and a half later--on Christmas eve--I got the replacement and put it in; however, as soon as I turned on the pc, the new power supply burned out. Needless to say, I was upset to say the least, but know I have a couple of questions:
1.) What could be doing this?
2.) If it's the Mother Board, are any of the other components compromised?
I am fairly certain it is not the wall outlet, as I have my old 550W pc plugged in now and I have no problems.
Vid card: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 550 Ti 1 GB DDR5 PCIe 2.0 Sku: ZT-50401-10L (min 400w pwr supply recommended, 116w max pwr consumption)
Hard drive: 1.5 TB HDD
DVD burner: lite on
RAM: G.Skill Sniper 8 GB (2 x 4GB) 240-pin DDR3 1333 (pc3 10666)
Power supply: Cool Power Gamer Series cp-g880 880w 20+4-pin
Case: Raidmax Tornado ATX-238wu R
If anyone could give me any pointers, I would really appreciate it.
Ya I'm looking at maybe getting a Cooler master, or Thermatake. The problem is Geeks.com doesn't have either of those in stock, and im thinking they will only give me credit back on the Cooler power (dead PSU).
