PC Blows fuse after upgrade

Specs:
Motherboard: b450 Tomohawk MAX
RAM: Corsair vengance 2x8
CPU: Ryzen 3600
GPU: MSI 2060 Super 8GB
PSU: EVGA 600 W1, 80+ WHITE
CASE: NZXT H510
I received a new card today. The system was running fine since the 12th of November with my old 1050ti. Today I installed the 2060 super and booted into windows fine with no problems. I updated the drivers and then powered off my pc so I could put the front and back panel on. I unplugged the pc from power after powering it off. After trying to power on, the pc turned on for a second and then turned off again. I saw the lights on the GPU and the motherboard.  The pc then wouldn't turn on. Turns out the fuses in my room were blown. I turned the fuses on and they blew again when I turned on the power supply. I took out the power supply separately and plugged it in, and nothing was blown. I tried this in multiple plugs. So is it my motherboard that's fried? What could have caused it?

It is likely your power supply still. When you plug it in separately, there's no load on it, so it draws no electricity. 80+ white is a really old standard, so I would recommend replacing it with something more modern. Check out the PSU Tier List for suggestions.

Edit: Ordered a 600 W beQuiet power 11 and everything worked fine. Thanks for the help

Ahh I see. Thankyou for the reply. I'll ask for a refund from Amazon and then look for a new one. Any idea what could have caused it? I don't see how putting on the front and back panel would have changed anything.

Did you have the motherboard and everything connected when you tested separately?

You might have a short in the case. For example, with the panels now on you might be pinching a cable or bending it so it shorts out.
