Would the dark area be next to the Processor, the processor itself, or on the processor socket (or all of them of course). I'm not sure I can check. I didn't notice any burn marks on the GPU and RAM which were also plugged in.
I'll do that ASAP, for now an entire day of anxiety at my classes, I won't get back till around 9 PM EST earliest, so I'll hopefully have my new PSU and be able to upload pictures by then to finally figure it out. Thanks for the help!
