Noticed something worrying inside my Chieftec 1200W

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello again fellows!

My PC is powered by a Chieftec BPS 1200W.

For a week ago or so I was cleaning my whole PC and did some tiny cable managements inside the case. When i was dusting of my PSU (without opening it) I've noticed something what looks like a bubblegum though, it's in a pretty solid state. It's close to something that looks to me like a container with "pink-something". I'm including HTTPs to 3 images that i took using my mobilephone. Not best quality and I'm aware of that it's hard to see but coudn't get a good angle.


Do You guys think It's anything that could potentially harm the PSU or other PC components?

The PSU was bought in late 2011 if I'm right.


Thanks for any upcomming answers!

EDIT: Just wanted to add that I don't have any stability inssues, the PSU is NOT going hot, and I don't notice anything strange while gaming either. Playing pretty demanding games like BF3, FarCry 3, Max Payne 3 and abit of crysis 3 but for some reason can't get any satysfying FPS on that game i think CPU is holding me back + the game is pretty bad according to me. Thinking about moving back to crysis 1/2 smile.gif.

Thanks for reply!

You actually may be right mate. Never examined the PSU closer so it's possible that it was there all the time and I just didn't pay any attention smile.gif.
