Default Snap, crackle, pop!

Well, I was mostly shut down due to temps and the recent smart meter install that will seriously increase my monthly bill but things came to a definitive end today....as is evident by the burning electrical smell in my office. As far as I can tell I have a fried gpu, psu and mobo. Still testing to figure out more damage but that sucks for me.
