ML370 PSU's Popping

I've had about 5 ML370's 3 of them have worked fine but 2 of them as soon as i plug power into the power supplies they pop is there a known reason for this?

Re: ML370 PSU's Popping

I have had the same problem with two ML 370 G1's. They worked fine one day then the next day when I plugged in the power cord there was a loud bang and then a wisp of smoke. This happened to two power supplies on one server and one on the other. At a guess, the server won't boot up if only one of the three redundant power supplies is operational which is a bit annoying to say the least! Is this a common fault amongst the G1's and is it worth my while investing in new power supplies or am I likely to hit the same problem? I used these servers at home, I am not a business so I don't want to waste money if it's not going to work. Any advice appreciated.

I replaced my four failed power supplies with second user ones and all seems to be okay :o)
