Bye Bye Power Supply


#1

Heard a loud pop from my case accompanied by the smell of burning electronics, and I knew.
Testing confirms, it is a sad day.
Should have another tomorrow.
See you in Cyrodiil soon.


#2

OUCH, heh well I guess I knew deep down PSUs had a shelf date but never heard of one going bump in the night.


#3

Oh man, sorry to hear that!


#4

I have walked that path. Hope all the other components are fine


#5

I hope everything else in your rig is ok!!!
I’m sure a few of us have been there, is there a Frys or Microcenter near you?


#6

Love Microcenter


#7

Annnd I’m back. All other components are working normally. Got a ram upgrade while I was at it. Gotta DM tonight but I’ll be on about 1 AM EST. Sorry for the delay in your research mats, Guardian. I’ll get them to you tonight.


#8

What kind of power supply did you get? Modular? Anything exciting or an emergency “get my pc back up” thing?

I bought a Thermaltake SP-850M. I was limited to Best Buy’s selection, but it more than meets my needs. Not really a bad price either. Newegg’s price is the same + shipping .5 Year warranty too where I think 3 is standard…
