psu killed mobo


one day i heard 2 pops then a cloud of smoke and my mobo was dead
and i never tried that psu again until i jumped it with a paperclip to run a fan to see if it works so was it the psu that took out the motherboard or was it a freak accident

Sounds like it overloaded 2 of your capasitors. What PSU?

never use generic psu, if there is one thing that is the most important component of your computer, its the psu
