Tonight my sons pc just turned itself off while he was playing a game

He took the side panel off and there was a burning smell inside coming from the cpu cooler it was red hot,hes allowed it to cool down but when turning it back on there's no power no lights,fans dont spin up,tried a different power lead,different wall socket nothing

Is it likely to be the psu? Spec-Amd 8350 processor,corsair 600wpsu,corsair cooler,gtx 970

Just to add the company we bought this from are refusing any help towards a repair,so my sons ordered and had delivered a new PC from Chillblast ,fabulous,far superior build quality to the other pc
