  1. They sent me back a brand spankme new PSU.... plus it was the newer version of what I had. Fantastic Customer Support and RMA process
  2. Not sure if that's true anymore. I've been a buyer/seller for 21 years on ebay and they never hold my money as a seller. I think it's only for newbies. But yes... I'm seeing auctions for pictures of video cards and everything except the card/unit itself. I reported a few as fraudulent, but realized how many there were so I gave up
  3. Just noticed on ebay the last few days that many 0 to LOW feedback sellers are selling GPU BOXES in the Video Card section and at similar Buy It Now prices as the REAL cards. The cards themselves are going so quickly that people are not reading descriptions and only looking at the price and model number. Be careful everyone
  4. I just stick to what I've had good luck with I guess... If it changes, then I guess I have to change too. The Corsair was 100% warranty covered and they RMA'd it. It went out today. Not sure if they fix or replace though.
  5. I've had ridiculously good luck with Gigabyte... I started with ASUS back in the early 2000's and had to use their tech support one time. The asshat was so belittling to me and then had the nerve to chew me out for updating BIOS without a technicians permission... you know... the ones they put on their own website to download? Then the board had to go in due to many issues including several connector headers not being actually secured to the board. It came back after 3.5 weeks and the headers were still not connected. I decided to not buy an ASUS board again after that
  6. I just thought it was VERY coincidental that it started having issues when I replaced the motherboard, CPU and memory. It was flawless before that. I was actually leaning towards the motherboard for a while. I pulled it and checked for a bent pin somewhere, etc... Thanks for everyone's input
  7. Sorry for the late response... I unplugged the 4-pin and the PC booted just fine every time, three times in a row. Since I do have a new PSU that has the plug, I will use it, but it's good to know that it was indeed my older Corsair power supply. I contacted them and started a ticket. This is the first issue I've ever had with anything Corsair. I would still buy. Hopefully their warranty/repair department comes through
  8. I will neither confirm nor deny that I read the manual...... I actually didn't even notice the extra 4pin connector until I was reassembling the PC. I stopped what I was doing and went up to MicroCenter. Two Salespeople there told me that I didn't need it. Apparently it has been a common question. Now I wonder how many people have found out differently. Mine boots every time now with the new Seasonic 850W
  9. New Seasonic Focus GX850 now installed... 5 successful bootups in a row without having to mess with any cords. I'd say the power supply was the issue OR This Mobo actually did need the 8 pin and the 4 pin connected. I'm stumped. Now... the Corsair RM750X I have has a 7 year warranty on it, so I wonder if they'll honor it? And thanks for the input IR..... Side question... All the fans in my case are now running a LOT slower and quieter since the new Mobo, CPU and Memory. Was the previous motherboard pushing them harder or the 6700 run warmer than this new 10700K?
  10. Nothing at all even when I press the power button several times. If I unplug the power cord from the power supply and plug it back in, I'll get a very brief flash on the motherboard that something happened. I'm putting in a different power supply right now just to rule that out. I didn't want to have to open this but I just did. If it's not the issue, hopefully I can take it back and save $150
  11. I'm out of ideas... I just upgraded my Motherboard, CPU and RAM and the damn PC won't boot when I click the button half the time. I have to unplug the power supply, and plug it back in and flip the switch on it a few times. This power supply has been flawless since I got it new appx 3 years ago, so I keep leaning back to the motherboard. Oddly enough, once it's running, there are ZERO issues. If I RESTART, it works fine. It only does this from a full OFF and a cold start I WAS running a Gigabyte Z170X-Gaming 7, i7 6700 and 16gb of Corsair memory on the 750w Corsair power supply which is 8 pins for the ATX power NOW.... The new Motherboard is a Gigabyte Z590 Aorus Elite AX, i7 10700K CPU and 32gb of Corsair Vengeance LPX 2933. Also the new motherboard is a 8 pin + another 4 pin ATX power, but I was told that the 8 pin was enough and I didn't need the other 4 pin unless I was overclocking. Could this be the issue? I NEED that 4 pin after all?
  12. The EVO worked flawlessly... The system was quick to begin with. I just needed more giggery
  13. There are several very steep yards in my town. I'm talking 60 degrees, etc... I watched a guy mow his one time. He had ropes tied to the base between the rear wheels and would lower it down the front yard. The kid was at the bottom and would move it over one width and the father would pull it back up and so on... They made pretty short work of it
  14. I figured I better jump before she looked into it any further.... She has a habit of "googling" things
  15. I think I may have looked at that one. I've had absolutely zero problems with the Samsung I have now which is why I was going to stick with them. The wife saw me looking and OK'd the cheaper one, so I went with the EVO Plus. 500gb should be plenty future-proof for just an OS and a few games. All my Docs, Videos, and Music are on separate drives
