PSU...poof

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
i dunno why but when I was watching a movie on my PC, out of a sudden my PC was shut off! suprisingly, it doesn't affect my speaker and also my monitor. then i checked out, the prob lies at my PSU(OCZ powerstream 520W).
so then i switched over to my old PSU and it worked. you guys have any idea what really happened at my PSU?

You let the magic smoke out of an IC. No way to really tell without checking it with a DMM.

A lot of people have had bad luck with OCZ PowerStream 520 and 600 watt PSUs. Either the PSU becomes really unstable, or it dies. Sounds like it's dead.

Don't want to make a bad publicity for OCZ or something (I never had an OCZ PSU anyway) but check out what "Tom's Hardware" has to say.
