Yes, dirty power can definitely damage components.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

@Fasauceome So I should recommend getting an electrician in to do some testing?

Three dead power supplies is suspicious, but not necessarily definitive for whether or not it's the wall power.

 

Calling the electrician is a good idea, if the cost is not too high

If the wiring was that bad then other devices would also die or have problems.

What brand is the PSU you replaced?

Depends on a lot of things. It's possible but the issue could be garbage power supplies or another component in the syatem

Past two PSU's were replaced by local pc mob which were coolermaster, the one that just went was only 6 months old which was a Corsair CX450M.
