My psu fried and there was liquid coming from it. Now they wont replace it because they suspect we put had put that there . I'm 100% sure i haven't done that.
Does anybody know if there could form any liquids after the psu fried or are there naturally liquids in a psu?

The vast majority of PSUs do not contain any liquids, not even one that's fried. If yours contains liquid it must have been spilled on to it, definitely not covered by the manufacturer's warranty.

A few liquid-cooled PSUs do exist, used in tandem with a separate liquid cooler, but you'd for sure know if your PSU was one of those just by looking at the PSU as it would have a pair of external connectors for the water feed circulation hoses.

What's make/model of your PSU?

Yeah not water cooled. I just wonder what had done it. So the capacitor thing is false? Or rather I can't do anything?

Capacitor leaking is true and something that can happen. It depends what this liquid is like, did they describe colour and viscosity?
No they just said "liquid that doesn't belong in there". I have emailed them about it and I will be waiting for their response. Last time it took 3 weeks after they got the psu.
