Fortunately had purchased two at the time (another for a separate project, that is still waiting for a GPU
), so was able to resolve by simply swapping the other PSU in (didn't swap cables or anything). Have always had good luck with Seasonic, so assuming its a one off.
Back Folding 24/7.
If it failed like 2 of my past 2 Seasonic's have after 5+ years of service- It was an inductor failure. No hardware taken with them.
Currently running a Seasonic X-Series 850W (KM3 revision, with the beefed up voltage regulation and 105C all Japanese caps and larger main cap)
