My PSU died completely - simultaneously so did my surge protector. My friend had an older, very clean (no dust or anything) but rarely used Enermax 720w PSU. I plugged it into my pc, and it immediately smoked and smelt of ammonia. Turned it off right away, anyone know what that's all about?

The second PSU that was installed started smoking as soon as i turned the computer on, followed by a strong ammonia like smell. I turned it off immediately after.
