My TX650M exploded with a bang and I there was a spark from the PSU.
The earthing pin was missing from the chord, and I think that was the reason.
I will receive replacement under RMA, this time with a proper earthing pin plug.
I will use a 6A 938J surge protector to avoid excess current.
Do I need to use a voltage regulator too?

I think that's probably a very good surge protector (I don't KNOW this but)...in my experience....Honeywell doesn't make crap.

I think they make some of the best quality stuff on the planet.

...and it should work fine for your system.
Thanks
Hope the new psu doesn’t explode

I hope not either.

...and that may or may not have been caused by the lack of a ground pin....or it may have contributed to it.
I've had them explode with a ground pin.
It may have just been a faulty component that caused a wicked short.
Caps discharging can also be pretty violent.

I think the chances of it happening again are very slim if you use the proper power cable with a surge protector.
