Power Issues

Getting close to the Con!  Only 7 days left!

I fried a power supply last night; I put a SCA drive on a SCA-to-SCSI adaptor and (unknowingly) grounded out part of the adaptor on the drive.  The drive wouldn’t spin, so I moved the adaptor a bit and noticed a bright orange glow- I then got a few nice sparks and pops from my 380W Antec Power supply (time for it to go out).  I replaced the power supply with an old ThermalTake 420W from the attic, but I haven’t had time to test it out yet.  Hopefully my Gigabyte board is not fried…
