PC: Aorus AD27QD

AORUS PRO Z390-PRO GAMING

Msi 2080 Ti Gaming

2x16GB DDR4 GSKILL XMP

9700K STOCK

Seasonic TX-750W TITANIUM PLUS PRIME

Pc was on idle and monitor was on. Other devices like tv,washer off. So not circuit overload. 2 weeks ago something tripped 2 small circuit breakers . All electricity lights and sockets went down .Then.......i go to bathroom and saw that one of 3 halogen bulbs no lightning. So one bulb get burned.

What tripped breaker? Halogen Bulb or Seasonic psu of my pc?

Like i said pc working normally after that outage.But i am worried about my psu.

Thx for helping me. I am not cooled down<lol>.

when a Hologen or incandescent bulb blows there can be a massive power draw by it for a second and way surpasses a breakers rating like 2x the amount.

as the PSU is working fine and you found 3 halogen lights where out if i was you i would suspect them Bulbs not the PSU

Ok then. Why i ask about Seasonic?

6 months ago my monitor ( psu/fuse inside monitor ) get damaged and tripped breaker. PC was fine. I rma monitor and shop exchanged psu inside monitor.


Thats why i ask about Seasonic now. Pc psu is not the same like monitor psu?

So propably i had a bad luck with monitor ( 6 months ago ) and now 2 weeks ago with bulb?

Moved thread to gaming graphics cards section as it is the only MSI component you have. Thread is even unrelated. However the monitor has an own external psu and is not powered by your pc. If the monitor fails it can't affect your pc's psu. Your pc only has a display connection.

a computer PSU has alot more filtering then a monitors PSU. all a monitors PSU has to do is supply a hand full of Vague Voltages and are built down to a very low budget using the cheapest parts that will do the job (most the price of a monitor is 2 things the screen and Logic Board and the PSU in it is the least important)

Seasonic make PSU's of very good Quality and will use over rated components so can handle a much higher surge then a monitor can as they have OCP (Over Current Protection) and OLP (Over Load Protection) built in so if they get hit by a surge they Lock down for about 10 mins and will just shut off supplying power till its stable again.

usually if PSU's fail its in a graceful way if there decent and will just not power up damaging nothing.

Somebody said "
you should check your house with emf meter..

sometimes high emf can cause electronics exploded.. "


It can be true or doubtful ?if from january 2018 to march 2020 nothing exploded. Last question :) And we can close topic. Really apologize for my bad language.

If nothing else happened no need for such checks. It can happen that a bulb and a monitor psu dies. Nothing to worry.

Hey . Sorry for late answer and question. Please explain me. Last question i promise :)
So if 8 months ago monitor psu tripped breaker ,that was monitor psu fault yes? Pc working was fine. And it was not related to my Seasonic Tx-750W Prime Titanium?
Only monitor get broken.

1 month ago something again tripped breaker but monitor working and pc working.
Only 1 halogen buld not lighting in bathroom. So it was not related to Seasonic 750-TX PRIME TITANIUM?

I mean on both incidents Seasonic 750-TX is coincidence?

yes its not the PSU. a halogen Bulb Blowing can overload a Electrical Breaker in a home very easy as lights tend to be on a 6 Amp Circuit and can easily overload it by drawing when they blow around 12 Amps or more.

so yes its a coincidence. its like saying each time something blew i was using my Smartphone over wifi is it my smart phone making it happen. if you use your PC alot then anything that blows will be 95% of the time be on so your getting a little bit paranoid about it but its nothing your just seing a pattern that is not linked to anything.

if things keep Blowing in your home i would look into getting a Electrician in to see if there is a issue with your homes power in some way.

more then likely not. that sort of failure rate is normal as its a Halogen Bulb (wel known for Failing) and a cheap monitor PSU (not really made to last) is not really a problem. but if something Breaks every month or 2 or so you may have a issue.
