Well, this is a first. Quick history, I've build over 100 desktops of various kinds, and not once has this happened. Everything was double and triple checked via MOBO manual, and the PSU was working fine in another desktop, same with the RAM, and SSD.
Corsair CS Series 450W 80+ Gold
Corsair 4GB RAM (2x2GB)
Crucial M500 120GB SSD
AMD A6 6400K
MSI A78M-E35 motherboard
Within a second of turning the desktop on, I immediately turned off the power via PSU switch on the back. I saw an orange light near the (20 pin) power cable and the SysFan1, which had nothing plugged in. There is a slight singed area, light brown like a toasted marshmallow.
Already tested the RAM, SSD, and PSU in another build and it works perfectly. The CPU has also exploded, something I've never ever seen before. There's literally a chunk that didn't come out of the socket, which is also melted.
No overclocking of any kind whatsoever, and the PC was plugged into a surge protector.
Contacted Amazon and they said they'll send a new one and to send in the fried and they said they'd send a new one.
Think any of the current leaked out into other hardware or stayed isolated on the MOBO?
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
