    My power supply tried to kill new components.

    LOL ok my pc randomly shut off today and i cut it back on after dinner thinking it had enough of 2.4 ghz. well it cuts on fine until i notice i cant see my UV lighting and the window is getting foggy That is when i smell it! then i panic and notice my outtake fan blowing out steady streams of smoke. so i pull the power and take off the side panel and let the case air out for 45 mins come back in and notice the smoke came from under the mobo this is where i get anxious. i rip out everything and put it on a cardboard box and test it with my new thermaltake 430 watt psu and lo and behold it posts. turns out just the psu is gone which is my old 350 watt hipro. All in all its funny how my hipro lasted one day after my new psu came before it died i had quite an exhilarting afternoon just thought i would share it with you peeps :lol:
