They are normally not both hot. one is neutral and one is a phase. Third one is normally ground/earth and appliances that have plugs with ground/earth contacts/wires should not be used as it can be dangerous.Is it ok to use an outlet that has only tow hot wires for your pc red and black
That means your plug, somewhere, lacks a Ground. It can be at the plug, any plug upstream, the house panel or even the service main may have lost bond. Many older US houses, pre-70's, didn't use a ground for many circuits, they used a 2 prong system and ground was basically useless and often cut off. The only circuits that did maintain a ground were the 240v circuits for dryer, water heater, stove, central heat etc as they used a 3 prong system.And I use ant eSports 550 w as psu which shocks me if I touch it's surface at first I thought it was only the scratched area of the psu but now the whole case of the psu is shocking me.
It's not "Weird", Ground/Earth is safety feature and does not regulate voltage. If you have an electric water heater and heating element burns thru results can be shocking (literary). If there was a short in PC's PSU you could have free fireworks and melted components with fire involved.So if it's over current over voltage or under current or voltage then why it didn't happen all those six days of constant gameplay some stress test and there was even a power surge but that didn't affect the system it was working after the surge and I was gaming on it
The whole situation is weird

PSU's are not made to be repaired and any attempts to do so could end badly in a number of different ways.
May be a loose connection somewhere. PC works for a while, shorts, and you get shocked. However, it does not take much for electricity to find some other path that will lead to more deadly or catastrophic results.
There is only one option: Get a qualified electrician to check your home's electrical system and the wiring serving the PC.
Especially if being shocked and the shocks are getting worse. Unplug the computer in the meantime. Do not use it.
