    Angry ROG THOR-850P OOB terrible smell


    I just made my first Rainbow Barf™ PC Upgrade after like when the i7-5930K was still a thing and part of the Upgrade ( Intel Core i9-9900KF, ASUS ROG Maximus XI Code, ASUS ROG Ryujin 360, 32GB G.Skill TridentZ RGB ) was also an ASUS ROG Thor-850P which looks all nice and cool matching the other components but it, or the supplied ATX/PCIe cables, smell so friggin bad of chemicals they're causing instant headaches in a room with a ton of space to otherwise breathe in - The longer I think about it the more it smells like a mix between tire rubber and gasoline...

    The smell was immediately noticeable when unpackaging everything in preparation but I didn't give it much thought since all new parts smell in one way or another but this one sure kicks balls badly and it appears not to be in a hurry to go away anytime soon which I do not agree with >_<

    Anyone feeling responsible to contact me about this?

    There is a section for PSUs but there's so little traffic I don't think you'd get answers to your poll.
