Anyone know what this little bridge on the back of this circuit board is called?

This is the back side of the main board out of my PSU that recently blew. I've already replaced the PSU and so far it looks like it didn't take any other components out with it. Since the old one was out of warranty, I decided to take it apart and try to find the point of failure, and that little bridge labeled D206 looks to be it. You can see D207 in that image too, I would assume that it's the same type as the one that failed, just not exploded. Anyone know what the proper name for that thing would be? I keep calling it a bridge but I don't know if that's right and it's way too vague for me to do more research on that part itself.

Probably just a diode. Be sure to safely discharge the capacitors though.

The D207 and D206 components are diodes. The numbers are reference designators for those component locations on the circuit board.

Similarly, the CXXX are capacitors and the RXXX are resistors.

Out of curiosity, what make and model was your old PSU?
Might be good for people to know if it's something that's likely to just blow up your computer.

It was a Seasonic X650 Gold, purchased in 2011. Had a five year warranty, and the same models purchased after Sept 2012 have a seven year warranty, so I assume they probably tightened or improved the manufacturing after that point. I replaced it with a Seasonic Flagship Prime 750 Platinum, which have twelve year warranties.

What will a warranty cover you with when it comes to a PSU? I mean, I understand if a GPU dies they'd replace the GPU...but a GPU isn't likely to fry your entire computer if it rolls a natural 1 one day and inhales a bubble.

And TC was never heard from again.
But seriously, don't take apart a PSU. It's a great way to electrocute yourself.

Well, the PSU itself, of course. And the reason I only buy Seasonic PSUs is that I've found through my research that they are the least likely to take other hardware with them if they die. This one dying and not taking anything with it helps that conclusion.

It had been unplugged for over 2 weeks, pretty sure it was fine.
