So today I had to replace my mobo as the other one died. So, when everything booted up it was fine for maybe an hour. Then I tried to play a game. After five minutes, I hear a loud POP and smell smoke. I can smell it coming from the PSU. I'm guessing that a conductor died. My question is, will my parts be okay and is this just a big coincidence? Or is this going to happen again?
are u sure it is from psu, such things used to happen for graphics cards, especially you were playing a game, so check you graphics card upward side and downward side and see if there is a capacitor that is broken.
also if it is psu then stop using it.
