PSU probably dead + anything else ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So during the weekend I've been LANing with friends, I dld some nvidia system configuration to raise my GPU fan speed, did that and everything was fine until last night when I got home from the LAN I set up my computer, turned it on and decided to raise the fan to 100% again then suddenly bam, the power went off the whole house and I heard a loud like a snap from the computer, I had no idea what happened so I turned off the PSU and opened up the case and saw nothing wrong overall. I put the electricity on again and when I try to turn on the PSU now, only the PSU the power cuts out again. Is my PSU broken ? and could this affect everything in my computer because I just recently bought most of the things (1 month ago), I've been trying to google this but I can't find anything about this kinda problem :/

depending on what went in the psu it could be nothing or everything only way to know for sure is to put in another psu to check but there is a good chance its just the psu that went

k I'm trying to decide if I should go for CORSAIR Professional Series AX750 or SeaSonic X-850 or even just buy HX850 what do u guys recommend ?

Cheapest AX750 costs in Iceland about 30k ISK (~254$)
and X850 costs about 35k ISK (~297$)

I plan later to buy GTX670/680 when it comes out and SSD etc so the PSU has to last for about 2-3 years for me
