I got my PC about 3 years ago. Part of it was setup at the shop (e.g. Case, Processor, MB), rest of the "easy" pieces were added by myself. In the past 3 years, I have blown (count 'em) 5 power supplies. The first few times, I just returned the PC to the shop, and I suspect that they were replacing the PSU with generic models. I was blowing power supplies once every 6 months. For the last supply, I purchased and installed an Enermax 420W, more than enough to power my system. That one lasted me 13 months, and blew this past weekend. By blew, I mean you hit the power button and nothing happens. I have gotten to the point where I can tell if the PSU is going to go. I had noticed some signs over the past two weeks (lockups, cutouts). It finally went after the PC had been powered on for about an hour, and about 5 minutes into playing a graphics intensive game. I have tried plugging in just the PC, with the side off to inspect lights inside. When I hit the button, there were no lights inside the case. When I went to remove the power cord, I noticed what I would call static (white light with crackle) inside the PSU. I tried another power cord, and as soon as I plugged it in I got a crackle. In all the times that I have had issues, I have never lost a component inside the system, always just the PSU. We have another PC in the house with roughly the same specs that has run without issue for 2 years. List of things that I have tried: -Move the PC to another outlet (although on the same circut breaker switch in the apartment) -Replaced Video card (about 2 months ago) -Moved down from 2 CD/DVD drives to 1 -Moved down from 2 HDs to 1 -Inspected the MB for signs of capacitor issues (bulges, leaking). -Checked to ensure that there were screws in the MB as per MB manual -Checked to the best I can see that the MB is not touching the case -Searched endlessly on the internet for a competitor to my PSU blowing record Yet to try: -Moving to a new apartment -Purchasing a new PC (after wraping caution tape around the old one) Anyone have any ideas what may be causing my problems? I am to the point where I am thinking of just purchasing a new system, however, am concered that there may be an issue with power inside the apartment, and don't want to start blowing PSUs on a shiny new rig.
