Power Supply makes "fire" noise and also smells bad!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi, so this is my situation; I have bought a new Desktop Budget PC for home with the following specifications:

- CPU: Core i3 3220 3.30GHz
- RAM: 8GB DDR3 1333MHz Patriot
- GPU: Gigabyte Nvidia Geforce GT 630 2GB GDDR3
- HDD: 500GB HGST
- MOBO: Gigabyte H61
- PSU: 220W (Don't know the model)


And it was fine for a month but today i've got some DVD movies and i had to convert them to "movie files" via some softwares but when i put the first CD and when the file was converitng i heard some "fire" noises coming out from the PC but i didn't know from where, first i thought that DVD-R is making such a noises but when i looked at the back of PC i saw that the lights together with noises were coming from Power Supply, however the computer it just worked fine but then immediately i turned off the PC because i was afraid of other parts and now i have to send it to the service but still not sure if this issue will be under warranty and also i'm afraid that maybe other parts are affected a bit from power supply going badly, so please give to me an advice what should i do and what do you think ? Thank you so much and sorry for my poor english !

If you bought from a single shop there is nothing to worry about still 220W can be enough but what brand.
I have a 192W one running a 3820qm and a 7850HD but that one has exceptional graded components and costed a ton if this is a no name PSU get yourself a decent one.

If you had that PSU and it is a no name one and it kills something else you will have to either explain it to the shops or say nothing (we can't discuss this option here on OCN) and take the risk.

The PSU probably was maxed out at 220watts and finally gave out, time to get at least a 350 watt one for that system. Only way to tell if anything was affected is to test it with a new PSU.

My thought exactly 220W should be fine but only it it really is 220W with most of it on the 12v line in my case that would be all over the 12v line biggrin.gif

You can probably get a new 350w for cheap.

Only if it was actually ATX v2.3
But there's no way modern low power PSUs are non group-regulated

Here goes my recommendation then,
