Corsair 600t almost caught fire.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I started my computer and then it started to smell really burn't and then smoke came, so i turned the computer off.
Then i removed my dvd burner and saw that the fan controller connection has burn't and that i killed two out of 4 connecting, lucky i only need to use 2 of them.
So i wonder what should i do, so im asking for help to what i should do and if any of have ever experienced the same thing,

Looks like you were pushing too much current through that fan controller. It happens all the time when try to push too much current through something that has a limit, fires tend to happen. Get a proper fan controller that can handle the AMPs and voltage of your fans safely without being a fire hazard. Usually built in fan controllers in cases are meant for quiet, low RPM, low AMP fans.

Contact Corsair and they should give you a replacement circuit board for the built in controller, so you can at least run some low-amp fans off it and your case isn't damaged but yeah you should probably get a real fan controller as well.
