PC: Aorus AD27QD

AORUS PRO Z390-PRO GAMING

Aorus 2080 Ti waterforce stock

2x16GB DDR4 GSKILL XMP

9700K STOCK

Seasonic TX-750W TITANIUM PLUS PRIME

Pc was on idle and monitor was on. Other devices like tv,washer off. So not circuit overload. 2 weeks ago something tripped 2 small circuit breakers . All electricity lights and sockets went down .Then.......i go to bathroom and saw that one of 3 halogen bulbs no lightning. So one bulb get burned.

What tripped breaker? Halogen Bulb or Seasonic psu of my pc?

Like i said pc working normally after that outage.But i am worried about my psu.

Thx for helping me. I am not cooled down<lol>. Like i said pc working fine,but just was thinking that maybe psu get failed ,like one off?

I bought a Seasonic recently I think the same model of yours, they are beautifully made & even if your are no gamer a good PSU I feel adds stability to your PC as the voltage rails are more constant - IMHO I would think your PSU really is the last thing I would be thinking of, more like your bulb?

Ok then. Why i ask about Seasonic?

6 months ago my monitor ( psu/fuse inside monitor ) get damaged and tripped breaker. PC was fine. I rma monitor and shop exchanged psu inside monitor.


Thats why i ask about Seasonic now. Pc psu is not the same like monitor psu?

So propably i had a bad luck with monitor ( 6 months ago ) and now 2 weeks ago with bulp?

Was this you in the Steam link? Maybe consider doing what was recommended in that post: move your machine to a different circuit if possible. Just to check indirectly: Is there proper voltage delivered to the 3, 5 and 12 rails? HWMonitor OR HWINFO


Example from my machine. The values should not dip below 5% re: 3, 5 12 volt rails. Do you have a really good-quality surge-protector? Or Uninterruptable Power Supply? Link to info about UPS: UPS

it can be a surge in your power lines, do you have an old refrigerator or an old air conditioner in your home, because these things switches on and off intermittently to regulate temperature and a bad thermostat/ compressor can cause a power sure in the circuit.

Seasonic are probably one of the best if not the best OEM PSU manufacturer around.

I recommend getting good quality surge protector for your PC or if your budget allows get a 1000 to 2000va UPS.

Frequent power failures or surges are not good for your PC in the long run so a UPS will be a worthy investment.

I had previous monitor ACER PREDATOR , 11 months and it never tripped breaker. When i bought AORUS AD27QD it happened after 3 months,psu in monitor get damaged and burned and tripped breaker. So i guess its monitor fault?

3 weeks ago halogen bulb get burned. And its fine again.
