Yeah that’s the most likely cause of the PSU smelling.

Another reason might’ve been a cheap lower-quality PSU. :mrgreen:
I had a 450w Octigen one years ago that used to switch off and make sparking sounds if the cord in the back moved too much. :mrgreen:

+ Learned this past Monday that my instructor got fired and we're getting a new one in 2 weeks. HOORAY!!! The guy was an asshole anyways and trying to get some of my fellow colleagues fired, including my new friend I made there.
- Unfortunately I did not finish my recent project due to spending all of Monday in some strange happy trance and did no work that day. :oops2:
+ But, my presentation went alright anyway.

- One of the keys on my keyboard came off today. Might have to get another keyboard.
+/- Some associates from some company will be observing our class tomorrow. I'm nervous, mainly cuz I've been known to sleep in class and the fact that i don't think I have the right suit for professional looks, since the closest I got is a navy short-sleeve shirt. Feel alright with the rest of my outfit for tomorrow though.

It does, I'll eventually be getting a few games from the FF series when I get around to it, I haven't played them in years.

- I want too many things all at once. :oops2:

Thanks Fifo! :D

– We got some disappoionting results from the lab.
+ Marketing found a good way to spin it, and make me feel better about it too…
– Too many meetings, two days in a row, and tomorrow's going to be a big day-long meeting… I'm promising people I'll do stuff in one meeting, then it's not getting done because I only have a few minutes before I have to have another meeting, with some of the same people! :fou:
– Not getting stuff done makes me feel absent-minded. :mefiant:
+ Better to be busy than bored. :fou:

– Remembered today that my decennial here on RaymanPC passed unmarked last week.
+ But I've got a shiny red username to make up for it. :mrgreen: :mrred:

+ You two and Boombo well deserve the promotions! :D
- As of today two keys on my keyboard have popped off. Unfortunately they are keys I use to do gaming, so I might need to get another keyboard.
+ 15 dollars, thankfully, is cheap for a keyboard of my model.

– I just found out there's only 5 BIOS versions for this motherboard the cheap CPU will work on.
+ I know it's not on one of the latest 3, since a 3700X wouldn't boot on it. That narrows it down from 10 versions to 7.
+ This means that there's only 2 possible versions it could have out of those 7 that it won't work on.
+ There's a 71% chance I'll be lucky and it will work.
– There's also a 29% chance that it won't.

+ I feel like playing Rayman 2 again.

+ I'm not entirely sure which version to play, probably the Dreamcast one again.
± I guess I could replay Revolution and see if I have a better experience with the game this time around.
+ I'd definitely be setting the voices to Raymanian.

– Coil while is annoying
– My GPU does that, but not as bad as others I've heard.

+ I got my new CPU yesterday.
– To say I had to jump through hoops to get everything working would be an understatement.
