Hello,

My new GTX 1070 ti's fans stopped working, first the screen went green and I restarted the PC I switched the HDMI to the motherboard to be sure that if the problem is from the GPU. Then I switched the HDMI to the GPU again, it worked but the fans weren't moving. I knew something has broke in the GPU.

I tried to touch the back plate of the GPU and I got an electric shock ! I knew it's my PSU is the cause of the problem as I lost a 780 classified because of this PSU.

It's a cooler master V650, it worked nice for years then one day I was playing far cry 3 which is a heavy game, then because of maybe drawing a lot of current by the GPU, the PSU overheated and the 12V rail broke. Then after a lot of efforts to fix it, eventually I managed to replace the 12V rail mosfets and the PSU worked! But I didn't know that there still a short somewhere in the PSU and now I'm pretty sure that the PSU isn't %100 working correctly!

I took the GPU out now and I'm working on the motherboard HDMI, but the there still an electric leak on the system over all. So if I touch anything metal on the rig, I would get a small shock.

I'm for sure placing a new PSU and GPU on Amazon, I chose these:
EVGA 700W
GTX 1660 ti

I really have to borrow a PSU before buying this order because I don't want to buy the PSU alone then if the GPU won't work it would take extra time to order the GPU alone with new shipping costs.

Hi I bought a new PSU and the same problem exist !

It's now either the motherboard or the wall mains isn't grounded, because other stuff in my house can give electric shocks.
