Not fifteen minutes go my rig died in spectacular fashion. She's got a stock Phenom 9850, Gigabyte MA790FX-DQ6 Motherboard, 2 x 2GB DDRII PC1066 Ram, ATI HD 4870 512M PCI-Ex, 2 x 500G SATA2 7200RPM 16MB HDD in anAntec 900 with a Thermalake PSU. I'd just minimized Medieval 2 to check on a download when it switched off, completely dead. I tried re-booting, nothing. I waited about five minutes, checked the cables, nothing. Pulled everything off the powerboard, tried again, still nothing. Completely dead. I decided to wait, gave it another ten minutes then tried again. BOOM. PSU completely blew. God almighty bang, yellow flash then nothing. I'm not so dense that I can't figure out my rig needs a new PSU. But what else am I in for? Could this affect anything else? ie: am I in for a new mobo or something? Also, what might have caused it? Rig is one month old, custom built, opened once to install second hard drive. I know I'm in for a new PSU, but what else could this have affected? Any chance of this shorting out anything else? And what could have caused it? I've got surge protection, and nothing else in the house seemed to flicker when it happened. Help me Bit-Tech!
