3 PSUs in a year

Got a new build earlier this year but my PSU has blown out three times. At first I thought it was a bad psu cause it lasted me a month, the next one 6 months and the final one 1 month and a half.

It is a EVGA supernova g3 650w, i have a i5-7500 cpu and a radeon 480x . Not sure what to do now

  1. Seems strange. EVGA supernova g3 are good PSU. Have you contacted EVGA regarding this?

    Is your power grid unstable? Using a UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply)?

  2. Defiantly a power issue in the house etc.

    Best to call an Electrician and have the house checked etc.

  3. EVGA g3 PSUs are pretty good. My only guess would be that you have had some major power issues.

    With that in mind, I would get a line filter.

    This one is pretty good and $50.

    I've used this one and a Furman with good success in a location with known bad power. I put them in the wall and then a UPS in to the conditioner and the PC in to the UPS. From cheapest to most expensive. So the conditioner reduces issues for the UPS. The UPS helps out the PC. The PC keeps working even out in the woods with the issues from that location.

  4. I would suggest a UPS with line calibration. Cyberpower has nice UPSes with AVR and line calibration on sale all the time. Get one with at least 1300VA to support everything connected to your computer and longer run time.
