This Sucks...Please Help
The first time I built a computer, my PSU blew up. I got the new one, and now my dad won't let me start it up without someone who knows what they're doing around. So I just want to know what I can do differently this time to make sure the same thing won't happen again. Does anyone have any idea why it might have happened the first time? Everything was plugged in correctly, no metal was touching the motherboard. The only thing that could have been bad was I had a 20 pin PSU, and a 24 pin MOBO. I didn't bother with an adapter, because I read in several places that it wasn't necessary. Would that make the PSU blow up though (Spark and then smoke)? Also, what else could be damaged, and what are the chances?
Thanks a lot everyone,
