PC - burnt plastic smell?

Hey guys, i've ran into some problems recently - my PC worked perfectly for at least a year and it started smelling like burnt plastic or rubber recently. I did not think it was serious until it turned off on me today. Works fine now, but still smells like crap. GPU temps and CPU usage is fine, SSD temps are fine, same with HDD - what could that be? The PSU?

Thank you!

Likely the PSU.

Replace it, but be careful. It may have fried some other parts along with itself.
