Did My SeaSonic X-850 Kill 3 CPUs? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 

If I don't see physical damage on the old PSU's cables, is there any reason to replace them with the new ones? The voltages seemed fine, which I mentioned in the OP.

I don't think the PSU could be at fault here. Check the wall socket, looks like it could be some other problem with the electricity. A short circuit, maybe or some power surge.

Nope, if the voltages are fine (idle and full load) there's no reason to replace the cables.

I won't be able to check them at load without putting my CPU and mobo at risk, right? That means I have to replace the old cables just to be sure. Another PITA.

I doubt it was a short circuit or power surge since I didn't move my system in over a month, and none of the other electronics connected to my surge protector were damaged.

Do it in small increments... start with low load scenarios and move up till you reach the power bugs (Furmark + Prime95).
