    Either it is the graphics card or CPU VRM, if it is not the PSU...
    And if it is the PSU, there is no other way besides an RMA process...

    To open it up and void the warranty without knowing what you're doing, is the worst thing one could possibly do...
    Wouldn't be the first one to die while messing around inside a PSU thingy...

    Yeah, some genius went poking around the PSU, and managed to Darwin-award himself by bridging the main capacitor's terminals with an open wound on his hand, delivering a shock through the blood straight to his heart.

    A one-in-a-billion chance, but he was the (un)lucky winner...
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.
