My 10-month old Antec TruePower Trio 650W blew up last night. It was work fine the morning before. I turned on the PC, then I could hear a high pitch whining sound that lasted a few seconds before a loud hiss and white smoke started pouring out the back of the power supply at a great speed (reminded me of those smoke machines), I quickly switch off the power outlet at the wall. It took a while for it to stop spewing smoke everywhere... pretty much filled the room. For two hours, my room smelt like burnt fish.
Anyway, I am sending the PSU to Corbell for an exchange later today. This PSU costs me $200+. I probably won't buy another Antec again.
My main concern now is the condition of my motherboard and CPU. Hopefully, the damage is restricted to the PSU only.
Has anyone experienced the same situation like mine?
