your PSU is good choice and it received very good review on newegg...
maybe you pick the bad binned one
are you sure you have a good electricity?
in some cases, power surges will kill components inside your PC. PSU is the first victim

Im not but I did get the best power strip I could find shouldnt that stop surges or is there some kind of fuse I can put in the power line

Look into a UPS if you can, uninterruptable power supply. That way it evens out power surges if that is the actual case.
