Does this sound like PSU failure?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
ASRock Extreme 4 Z77
Intel i5-Ivy Bride
Corsair TX650
EVGA GTX 560 Ti FPB
Corsair Vengeance 8gb
WD Black 1TB
Corsair Force 120gb SSD


Essentially, I got everything installed up and running. Got all my drivers installed and had to RMA my WD Black. Got that yesterday, was up and running fine with everything installed. Today, I click the internet and my computer shuts down without a BSOD or warning. Then, by itself, it tries to turn back on, and for whatever reason this keeps happeneing. I do not push the power button, it keeps trying to power itself on then turns off. The monitor doesn't turn on at this time. All my case fans, CPU fan, GTX 560 fan are working, the PSU fan is firing as well, but then it'll turn off randomly without showing me BIOS or anything. Although, intermittently, the start screen or BIOS screen will show up and I've tried clicking safe mode with no luck it shuts down after without warning or sound. After the firs time this happened before BIOS wasn't even showing up, I was able to get to my desktop twice and viewed the event log and it said kernel power failure.

I would say, testing a may-be-faulty PSU on another system is putting other components at risk, what should OP do instead is getting another PSU from another (properly working) system to test if anything other than the PSU is faulty.

I had the same problem with random shut downs during games and web browsing. There was also a burning smell coming from the PSU. I'd stop using it and test another one otherwise it could also ruin other components.
