    My PC Config :

    Processor : AMD FX 6100
    HDD : WD 1Tb
    RAM : 4gb Corsair
    Motherboard : Gigabyte 880GM-d2h
    GPU : Zotac 560ti
    Cabinet : Cooler Master 922HAF
    http://www.coolermaster.in/product.php?product_id=6606
    PSU : Corsair GS600

    i bought my pc 6 months ago.
    In Starting i bought Cooler Master 500W PSU. Used it for a month or so it burnt.
    So, Next time i bought Corsair GS600W and this UPS http://microtekchennai.com/li1000va.html
    I Thought it was Voltage Fluctuation Problem so bought a UPS.
    In Starting i had an issue with UPS when ever power failures at my place my pc gets restarted So called MICROTEK Servicecenter he repaired the UPS at this time everything was fine.
    So, I Started Using My PC with GS600 + UPS.
    In just 2 days my GS600 Burnt.. and FUSE of the UPS also burnt.
    It was in warranty so i got it replaced with another GS600 this time i used pc just for 4 hours..
    Suddenly my PC Turned off i tried to switch on it again n kaboom PSU burnt again and same FUSE of the UPS also Burnt.
    So what can be the Problem ?
    Right now i'm using a 450W PSU without GPU, FANS of my cabinet.
    USing UPS I'm not facing any prblms now.. so, what can be the problem ?

    I'm betting you don't live in the U.S., right? And I'd almost be willing to bet your problem is not your pc but your electric feed......

    Get a proper ups and proper psu. Corsair gs series is crap. Microtek is crap.

    Get a seasonic x650 at least and get an apc 1000va.

    Corsair GS series is far from crap. Where do you get your info, aaksheytalwar?

    I think he's thinking of the BFG "GS" series PSUs.

    been running corsair gs700 for over a year without any problems - and yes electricity feed is erratic here so a very good PSU IMO
