First off, I would like to thank everyone for helping me out with my questions and problems. This board has been a really freindly place and I have enjoyed being in this community.
Now the juicy part...
I got this new 550watt PSU with the works blah blah blah. It has a 120mm fan on top and a 80mm fan on the back panel inside the computer.
[Heres a link that can better describe it than I can:http://www.realpcpower.com/SilenceBlue.htm
Anyways, when I put it in, it worked great. It was quiet and seemed to cool well. Well, after awhile I started smelling a smell and it smelt like burning plastic. I thought since it was new then it would make that smell and so I thought nothing of it. Little while later I kept smelling it, and by then I figured the new smell would have gone away by now. So I took the side panels off to examine it and then my computer shut down. So, I sat there for a bit in wonderment. Finally I came to the conclusion that the PSU must have over heated.The main reason why I came to that is that the 120mm fan that is on top is blowing air into the PSU and because my current case doesnt have a blow hole where the PSU is, it was only logical to conclude that the PSU wasnt recieving enough air to cool it. So, I tried turning it upside down and it wouldnt fit. So, I said screw it and threw my old one back in there and said piss on it. This really isnt a problem b/c this new one isnt even going in this case. Where it can create a problem is if my new case has the same screw config as this one. So, would I need to cut a blow hole into my new case?
BTW, what is all this about? Ive seen the switch for it and just wanted to know what its purpose is for.
Input Range: 115/220 VAC, switch-selected

Inrush Current: 80A Max for 110VAC, 120A Max for 220VAC
