I think my computer might have caught on fire yesterday lol. The fan on my CoolMax psu has stopped spinning without me noticing. I sat down and started gaming for about an hour til I started smelling smoke and seeing it coming from my case, I jumped up, pulled my case out and unplugged it. I see that some smoke was comming out of my PSU, I had a can of air with me so I grabbed it turned it upside down and sprayed it down lol. I opened it up later today and all the capacitors had melted or popped alongside the chips on it. It got so hot the sheetmetal on my case got warped. I am now running on a cheapo cooler master 430w psu from compusa til I order another one 2morrow, most likely the 600w ocz stealthxstream. So I guess a word to the wise, keep a can of air ready.
