Do you have the link of that PSU? Seems very "generic" for a rig like that.

Sadly no I'm about to buy another one but let me ask you what do you think about that PSU?

You don't need buy another one yet, not until we are sure that the problem is the PSU. Why not ask to a friend for a borrown PSU?

Yeah, seems good....but even the good things can fail, as my mother says: "The Doctors also die"
