Hey!
So this caught me off guard, really. My PC was in sleep mode so naturally, I wanted to turn it back on. That's when the fun begins. When I clicked the power button, I heard a crackling kinda sound (although not really cause it sounded like something in my rig exploded) and the power in my room just shut off. Moreover, the fuse switch refused to go to the ON position as long as the PSU was turned on. When I turned it off and restored the power, I tried to turn my PC on, but again, as soon as I flipped the PSU switch on the back, the power was gone.

I don't really know what caused this, I've never had any problems of this kind. Everything inside seemed fine. The PSU could be the culprit here (given I can't really locate the source of that weird sound). I've had this rig for six years now, but I'd never expect my AX860i from Corsair to literally explode on me.

If you have any ideas fellas, I'm all ears.
