So, one month after the purchase the PSU, it stopped to work !!!! Yesterday while I was playing WOT suddenly the PC shutted down! I tried to powel it on by pressing the POWER ON BUTTON, but no resolt follows, the PC did not turns on. I unplugged the power cord, waited for a while, plugged it again and pushed the power button - now the PC turned on and works fine for couple of minutes. After that it shutted down again. For 15 minutes it happens 5 times! I touched the case of the PSU and it was so hot that i couldn't hold my hand on it. As i said before - the fan did not start to work. I have never seen or felt the fan of the PSU working, even for a while. So today i brought it to the seller for repairs, it is in warranty period. Maybe i have a bad luck with a broken one PSU unit, i don't know, but they must fix it. After removing Powercolor PSU from the case and putting in the old one - Chieftech 750W the PC works normal under any conditions. For me there is no doubt that the powercolor PSU is somehow broken. This happened exactly in the moment when i changed the PC case from Enermax Liberty (the place for the PSU is in the top of the case) to the Cooler Master HAF-X (the place for the PSU is in the bottom of the case). The room temperature was 29-30 degrees.
