My new build was working fine today, but I just turned it on and the PSU started smoking. Here's my build:

CPU: Intel G620
Mobo: Intel DH67CL
PSU: Corsair CX430 V2
Memory: G. Skill Value Series 4gb DDR3 1333
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX550 Ti
Case: Cooler Master Elite 430
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500gb 7200rpm
Optical: Asus DRW-24B1ST

Can I just get the PSU replaced, or do I need to get a better one? Not sure if the mobo survived.

Welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums,
That PSU is (normally) a quality unit, it carries a 3 year warranty, I would begin contact with Corsair for RMA instructions
