After turning off my computer , I a big wooosh and saw blue flame coming out of the power supply. It came out of the fan hole on the top (in my case the PSU is upside down). So , carefully i approached my nose , but no smell , so I turn it on and everything works like normal :) . Im gonna take it appart tomorrow and see if i can find some interesting things.

Did this happened to anyone before?
Well , im starting to think i alucinated(sp???) this flame stuff. I took the PSU apart and there is nothing suspicious to it , no burnt stuff or smoke traces. Maybe that crack pipe on my desk would be an explanation :D
