    Re: The Real Thing

    I've had a PC Speaker catch fire before in my home PC. I shut the PC down as normal and then the fans went CRAZY and I mean CRAZY it sounded like it was taking off, screens went black then all this smoke started billowing out of the case and I went S**T and whipped the power out and the side off and saw the speaker and its cable smouldering away, it got thrown out of the window, don't know waht casued it the mobo was fine the next day but the speaker and cable had become carbonous.

    I have had flames shoot out of the back of a PSU. I was leaning over the case as I turned it on listening to see of the fan was starting up. The customer was just telling me as I did it there was a strange noise from it before. My face felt heated put it that way. I also recoiled so quick I knackered my back for the rest of the day
