. While it's not impossible, it's highly unlikely. . Batteries can explode when exposed to a lot of current, but with most PSs, some small component will usually fail (it might give a loud pop) before anything big has a chance to explode.

hrmm..sounds interesting....If the CPU was mega overclocked, it could have drawn to much energey from the PSU and maybe it melted, but an explosion...idk... where'd you read it anyway?
