Unplugging PSU power cable tripped a breaker

So this weekend I was tiding up and redoing cables on the PC I’ve build during the Christmas season. After finishing up I turned the PC on and everything seemed to be working correctly. After that I turned the PC off again, disconnect mouse/keyboard/HDMI cable, turned off the PSU and then unplug PSU power cable which caused living room breaker to trip. The PSU - Seasonic Prime Titanium 1000W - was plugged into a surge protector.

Now this is pretty unusual, I think I haven’t seem this particular breaker tripped since I moved in. However the PC seems to be working just fine. Moreover, although I’ve tried to trip the breaker again using the same procedure, I haven’t been successful.

So should I just forget about the whole thing or is this a reason for concern?

I wouldn't be too concerned about it. Unless it keeps happening.

This happened to me however it tripped when I turned the PC on.The issue wasn't PC at all but a bad wire on my air conditioner which were connected through the same socket / surge protector connection.
It happened twice and after that the wire (which was the issue) completely died.

One time might be nothing to worry about but if it happens again I'd say look at other equipment and not just the PC.
