I'm owner of Seasonic X-650.
I have the front case fan attached through two cables snipped which contacts are connected to 3-pin adapter.
The red cable was falling out from the tubing.
I want to attach the red cable into tubing but accidentaly plug it into one of the ATA power contacts (PC was turned on).
The cable started to smoke and be hot in my hand, so I immediately break off the contact.
Then after couple of seconds the PC turn off itself.
I turn on my PC and after startup screen my ASUS board wrotes me:
"Anti-surge protection was triggered, system was shut down to protect from unstable power supply.
Press F1 to check the BIOS."
I entered BIOS, choose save and restart. By the way, what I should check?
Then system boot up normally.
Turn off the PC again.
Then the same message on screen with Anti-surge protection...
Then I turn off my PC.
Power switch on PSU switched from 1 to 0 position.
Then from 0 to 1 the PC turn on immediately without!! pushing the power switch on my case.
Then I normally turn it off, take 230V cable out off the PSU, take it back, normally turn PC on with power switch and PC is working.
My questions are:
1. Can it damage my PSU ?
2. Or can I check if my PSU is OK?
3. What has really happened when cable start to be hot and burning?
I'm afraid because I would like to attach my new graphic card in couple of days...
