    So my old PSU 1000watt Antec died last week and I replaced it with a Corsair CXM 750W. Motherboard is Asus Sabertooth Z77.

    the Corsair CXM 750W was a modular PSU and I didn't push it all the way in on the PSU end for the PCIE 8pin connector.

    When I powered the PC on I saw smoke came out from the first PCIE slot which I had a GTX1070 in there, must because the card was trying to draw too much power from the PCIE slot.

    I then powered off, connected the card to secondary PCIE slot, booted...

    Overloaded PCIE 16x slot, saw smoke.
