My guess is power surge or aging components. It's not easy to kill a power supply unless you stress the PSU with constant load over 80% or near its rated specs in long terms or over heated. I have Enermax too and they are tough units.

yeah well, it was quite dusty, and not to sure if the bottom fan is spinning properly, as it when I hold the fan and spin it, it vibrates quite alot, like the bearing might be shot.
im going to pick up a fuse hopefully tomorrow, and almost buy one of those surge protection power bars.
and hopefully it works haha.

sometimes its better not to replace a blown fuse, until you find out what caused it to blow up in the first place.
I once did that and the PSU ran for a whole day and then took out a few components the next day when it also melted the 3 pin power plug.

It could have been a power surge but then again Dude, be careful with that PSU.
I would suggest you visit this other forum that I frequent often that has some expert electricians that helped me fix a couple PSU's last year.its http://www.badcaps.net/forum/

Good Luck thumb.gif

Way to make me all nervous now, I just spent a bunch of money upgraded to socket 1155 :/

Well unfortunately I replaced the fuse, and nothing has changed, still get the red light and 2 beeps.

A shame, was such a good power supply until this incident.
