PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 750 GA, 80 Plus Gold 750W
 
My PSU when unplugged and drained power from the machine, will have a small discharge hum and a small light that looks like an arc. My PC turns on fine and there's no odd smell coming from the PSU.
 
Is this just an In Rush current or is something wrong?
 
EDIT: This happened two times.

    Arcing is definitely not normal.

    Not even close to normal lol. I would not use this psu with your hardware, as you're running a risk of fire or component damage.

    It might not be faulty, as it could be an error with how you have it wired/home electric system. But I am not sure what you could have done to achieve this. Just rma it / return it to be safe.

    Arching is definitely not right. Arcing can easily cause a fire since the heat generated is extreme.
