Hello.

My previous pc ,i bought in 1 january 2019,here are parts.

9900K
Asus Prime Z390-A
2x16 GSKILL
Corsair 750RmX
2080 Ti Waterforce
monitor Acer Predator

There was not issues in house with tripping breaker/s.

In november 2019 i bought only new monitor Aorus AD27QD and new psu Seasonic 850W Ultra Platinum.

So in november 2019 i bought new monitor Aorus AD27QD and new psu Seasonic 850W Ultra Platinum. After 3,5 months , in february 2020 ,something tripped breaker in night and that was monitor becuase it get damaged. Pc fine,not damaged nothing.Only monitor pops.
In this time i was on Seasonic 850W Ultra Platinum.

So from 1 january 2019 to february 2020 i dont had single issue with tripping breakers.
14 months without problems.

In 28 march 2020 , i bought new pc parts:

9700K
Aorus Z390 Pro Gaming
2080 Ti Waterforce
2x16GB GSKILL
Seasonic 750-TX Prime Titanium Plus
new Aorus Ad27QD

And on 28 august, halogen bulb pop and tripped breaker.
In this time i was on Seasonic 750-TX Prime Titanium Plus.

So 5 months without problems.

( In that two breaker incidents i had Seasonic psu's )

Coincidence?
Apologize for my language i am real sorry. Feel free to ask

Sensitive breakers or unstable electrical grid. I highly doubt the PSU had anything to do with it. Hopefully you understand the wattage output is based on need. Your PSU may be capable of 750 or 850W, but it does not constantly churn out max wattage, it only produces what's required by the system. Light load, low wattage; heavier load, higher wattage. In other words, unless the breaker tripped while you were using the PC & putting it under heavy load (gaming?), something else is probably to blame.

I'm guessing the monitor wasn't plugged into a surge protector?

unstable electrical grid? But 14 months never anything tripped breaker. I was thinking that unstable electrical so something can happen faster.

First time it tripped breaker after i bought new monitor in november 2019. Monitor pops b reaker, in 2020 february.

Next time halogen bulb in 28 august 2020.

"unstable electrical grid?"

Sure. You didn't say where you're from but some countries have more stable & reliable electric power than others. Plus the wiring in the house could be an issue, or the way you have the circuit(s) loaded. You also said the problem happened overnight. Maybe some sort of power surge occurred while you were sleeping? Did you ask any of your neighbors?

"Next time halogen bulb"

What do you use halogen bulbs for? Lighting your home? Are LEDs not available in your country or too expensive?

This is very similar discussion to one a little while back.. That too had content of breakers blowing for whatever reasons, monitors replaced, and halogen bulbs blowing...?

"This is very similar discussion to one a little while back.. "

Same OP. This sounds like just a rehash of the previous post. Must not have gotten the answer he wanted before....
