Huge spark from tower, but everything works?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, Just finished moving my machine over into a Corsair 350D from the PS07 it was in. Everything was exactly the same as before, just a different case.

I hooked everything up and hit the button and a huge current arc came out of the back against the wall with a loud pop. I immediately shut off the power strip and set about investigating, but found nothing. No burns/scorches, no burnt smell, nothing. I tried again and it powered up fine, and everything works. What the heck just happened?

Nevermind, everything doesn't work. Lost the keyboard, my monitor speakers, and the left channel of onboard sound.

Sounds like the PSU damaged or killed something

PC isn't dead, and the PSU is an NZXT 850W that has been working fine for months. I changed cases, and thats it. I even pulled out the motherboard to make sure there were no extra offsets but there are none.

I think it was the keyboard honestly, I have a Razer BlackWidow and this was the first time I used the audio extender cord build into it. The keyboard now causes crackling sounds in the speaker that does work when I type so I think that was the culprit.

Is it a HALE 82 or 90?
