    I love the smell of burnt electronics in the morning.

    So this morning, I woke up to the awesome smell of burnt electronics. It ended up being my power supply... AGAIN. Twice this year I have replaced power supplies.

    What a bummer

    Heh, I know how it feels. I've fried 3 motherboards + 1 power supply. The third motherboard was actually ruined due to the power supply frying where it connects with the motherboard.

    Why? No idea. They run fine for a while and randomly start causing problems, soon they're gone.

    Backup parts are goooood
    I've had that happen a few times actually. Usually when the PS goes, it'll take the board/cpu with it, so you're lucky it didn't
