Ok so I know its normal for a new psu to have a burning smell but I got the psu 3 days ago and for the 2 days I didnt notice any smell until today where I returned from dinner having left my pc on and I smelled psu and it had that burning and then about 20 seconds later I get a bluescreen, im wondering whether its still safe to turn my pc on
It is also possible that it has anything with another component because my last I had an issue where my pc didnt boot but fans turned on and before it stopped working I also had a BSOD with glitched stuff at the bottom 30% of my screen
If @jonnyguru were to pop over here, our resident Corsair PSU expert of the highest order, he would likely tell you some of this is normal for a new PSU. It could be that you just haven't used yours enough the rid itself of the smell.
Perhaps im just thinking for the worst case scenario maybe the flux or whatever it is called is burning off and ive had BSOD's before after leaving my pc idle for about half hour or more, Ill see if I can find any cable that is melted or something when I have more time.
Yes I meant cx650f
I havent yet because I was afraid of causing any damage to my other components
