    Hello. Today first time something tripped breaker in my house. I mean i was sitting on Windows 10 desktop ,like always and i hear BUM from fuse box. And power go down. Pc turned off.
    I have that pc almost 1 year and something like that never happened. I think there was not circuit overload,because all devices was off,like tv,washer etc. Only pc was on. And nothing get damaged. Anybody have clue why it happened?

    To turn back power again i change two small breakers to up of course. And its fine again.

    PC:
    Aorus AD27QD
    AORUS PRO Z390-PRO GAMING
    Aorus 2080 Ti waterforce stock
    2x16GB DDR4 GSKILL XMP
    9700K STOCK
    Seasonic TX-750W TITANIUM PLUS PRIME


    Never happened with that pc in whole year. Also pc is stable during full load etc.
    Today i just browsing internet and power goes down. Until i swap up again breaker up.
    Pc working like before again. Weird any clues?

    Then.......i go to bathroom and saw that one of 3 halogen bulbs no lightning. So it get burned. So that was propably that halogen bulb? Or pc? But now its fine and working again and no issues.

    Just why power in wallsockets go out and lights at the same time? So pc or that bulb caused that?

    It's probably just a fluke.... The halo burning out might have been enough variation for the circuit to pop. As long as you're using a surge protector the PC should be fine and even w/o one the PSU should provide some protection as well.

    I know when I plug in anything like a Vacuum I'll trip a breaker for my BR but if I plug it into the bathroom instead it's fine. The BR has the alarm wart plugged in on the same circuit so the amps being pulled are probably too high for the breaker.

    It's also possible the breaker might just be old and might be fading causing the trip to occur. Just monitor for now and if it starts tripping more often then it's time to replace the breaker.
