Odd question here about a stinky computer

16 years ago

I picked up a couple of computers a couple of weeks ago and one of the computers had a bad power supply is all. I decided to change the power supply out from the other machine to use in the one with the bad PS. Well, the one that the PS works was obviously a smokers machine because the power supply although totally clean stinks bad when it is running.

Is there any way to eliminate or at least cut down the bad odor? I have dissasembled the power supply and cleaned all the fan blades and wiped the components down but still not much difference. I'm thinking I may have to find an alternative PS.

Thanks, Neal
