What a shortsighted post. He didn't say he ran 3dmark, he ran a different benchmark program and of the millions of pc's tested in it, it very much was top 6%.

That's what I'm saying. Run a REAL industry standard benchmark and not some bullshit test from 2011 and say you're in the top 6%.

Yea man. I did the "paperclip test", which basically just jumps power to the fan, and if the fan doesn't turn on it's shot. It failed that test, and as new PSU did fix it.

I could smell it failing about 30 minutes before it died

Sigh, it's not some bs test from 2011, but keep on w/your know-it-all mindset.

Dang, that really sucks. You're lucky it didn't take anything with it when it failed. Is it still under warranty? You may be able to get it RMA'd and have a backup. What PSU did you get as a replacement?

Lmfao. What a fucking douchebag. Don't you have a woman to disappoint somewhere? Maybe you should call up the whore you married and make another run at her.

I feel there is a story here I am unaware of, and now I'm curious.

I'd say the loser here is the one with the 40k post count.. lmao...

Crazie, I married a hot whore. Lasted 3 months. She cheated like all whores do and it ended. Bcoop is still buthurt I didn't take him up on his pro advice to dump her and not look back. He likes to bring it up 5 years later because that's the only thing he has on me, like I give 2 fucks.

Bcoops story is very similar if I recall. Although, soo boring I forgot most the points and was just trying to get the damn head case off the phone when he was offering his "expert whore advice."

Happened to me with a Corsair CX550M. Then a Corsair RM650. Turns out two separate things happened. First, the power in my house was having brown-outs, which killed the first one. Second, the brown outs fried one of my sticks of RAM which killed the second one.

Ended up getting an EVGA SuperNOVA G2 650 watt PSU, and an APC Battery Backup with Automatic Voltage Regulator, and it hasn't happened again since. I'd recommend the investment in a Battery Backup similar to the one I got if you have any sort of power issues at your house, at all.

I also had a corsair 1200gold fail in 2 yrs. Gave me overclocking failures and blue screens. I also swapped to an evga. The 1300 bronze and all has been good.

Not even close. That's not the only dumbassery you've posted on here over the years, either.

I'll add my $.02 to the psu thing, I've never had an Antec psu fail on me. Ive recommended them for years and have gotten flack for it. The deal is, you hav to research the model number of the psu you're looking into as every brand is made by a handful of makers and there are a few that are exemplary, hence why I suggest certain ones.

I really want that case, and I'm close to getting it.

The only thing stopping me is how lazy I am, and not wanting to move everything from one case to another.
Its a popular case right now. And I know that same laziness.

I second every point you made. All manufacturers, including Antec, have good and bad power supplies. The underlying manufacturer is where you get the differences in price and feature-set. Pretty much all PSUs are re-branded from the original manufacturer. I went with the EVGA SuperNOVA G2 650W because of the reputation, reviews, and the underlying manufacturer: Super Flower. They make high quality PSUs, and EVGA just re-branded a 650W and sold it as their own.

The other primary manufacturer from the EVGA PSU lineup is Seasonic. Seasonic makes great high-end PSUs, mediocre mid-line PSUs, and shitty low-end PSUs, all of which have a range of wattage values, and a lot of companies re-brand and re-box them as something they aren't.

If you ever want to read good, in-depth reviews, this site is widely regarded as one of the best, most reliable, most accurate consumer computer parts review sites out there, today: http://www.jonnyguru.com/

Random, but this being over a year old really makes me hate how quickly tech evolves from a money stand-point. For $900, you could build a pc WAY more powerful than this for $900. Maybe a tad bit more. 1080's can be had in the lower $400's. Then obviously the rest of the build.

At least now-a-days you can plan on it being on about a 1 year turn-around. between 5 and 10 years ago, they just released shit rapid-fire. Sometimes within 3 to 6 months apart.

My impatience had me get a 950 like a few months before the rx 480 and gtx 1060's became readily available. Oh well I guess. Good thing I'm only gaming in 1080p.
