There you go, fix that and you're sorted.

New SSD on fire is either your fault by fitting it incorrectly/with a damaged connector, or it was faulty to start with, assuming your PSU isn't faulty.

My first guess would have been a crappy PSU but since you got a decent Seasonic now. As you say so yourself, it could be a problem with the power grid in your area. Although I would've though the PSU is protected against that.
Have you tried another socket in the house? Checked up on the electrics? Perhaps get a better "socket multiplier" (don't know the word for it, you know, those things that you plug in to the socket so you magically have 4 - 6 sockets) ?

Not sure if a UPS would help stabilize your power, but might be worth looking into.

Er, it wasn't the SSD that died, it was a HDD.

Had a surge protector at the time, though it might've died as well. tongue.gif

Hey everyone, it's me again smile.gif

More problems arise. I got myself a UPS. I also got myself a new Asus motherboard and a new Intel quad core i5 3.2ghz cpu.

Today, I'm trying to run chrome, and it keep crashing. Certain things fail to run. Everything points to a ram problem. So I download memtest, and it finds several errors.

I am posting this because I am honestly boggled - this is my second ram failure, but this time I had a UPS. Is this even possible for such a high rate of equipment failure, even with controlled electricity?

Ram was Corsair XMS3 4x4GB 1300.

Same RAM model as the first failure?
Change your PSU as well.
