Hello, recently my power supply popped and started smoking and died on me so I disposed of it and got a new one, the new power supply works fine however my computer now has a problem where every other second the temperature on my CPU and motherboard rises by 0.5 degrees until it reaches 40-50 degrees and crashes. Could the power supply that died damaged a component which makes my computer overheat?
I have tried my CPU in another computer and it works fine so I believe that it is fine.

Might want to reset the BIOS to best defaults, setting may have been jumped when the PSU died

The Gigabyte is fair at best , but I would replace it with the Seasonic , Cosair , XFX , Antec.
