    What music are you listening to right now?

    Sound Garden - JESUS CHRIST POSE
  2. UPDATE LINKY TO JONNYGURU.COM From the post: So Nvidia's whole "power supply manufacturers aren't following spec" spiel is bunk. So to summarize..... PCI-SIG states that the 8-pin receptacle can accept a 6-pin plug, even though it has an offset clip. Strike 1. PCI-SIG accepts the adoption of 6+2-pin plugs that can accommodate both 6-pin and 8-pin receptacles. Strike 2. PCI-SIG states how wide the clip can be so the receptacle can accept 6+2-pin plugs. Strike 3! You're OUT!
  3. Do Corsair PSUs have the appropriate connectors for the new Nvidia 98** cards? There is a mechanical issue with the 9800 cards and virtually ALL PSUs. Nvidia has made the locking tab slot on the card narrow enough that most 8pin and most 6+2 pin connectors will not fully snap in. They will work electrically but, the tab will not lock the connector into the slot on the card. Corsair PSU's will work just fine electrically but you may either have to leave the tab out of the slot temporarily or cut the tab off. Nvidia is supposed to supply their partners with a proper adapter within a couple of weeks to negate the need for this. If you can't wait or if your cable will not work with the tab on it, you can clip the tab off the PCI-e cable. Some users have been able to wiggle and "finesse" the connector in so this may not apply to everyone. OFFICIAL CORSAIR STATEMENT: If you need to clip the tab on the PCI-e connector to make the connector work with these cards, it DOES NOT constitute a voided warranty. Any other modifications to the cables or PSU as stated by the warranty terms WILL constitute a voided warranty.

    Happy New Year!

    Title says it all. For any of you that choose to celebrate with spirits, keep it safe. I don't want to read about any of you in the Darwin Awards! May 2008 be happy, safe, and prosperous for us all!

    Corsair Power Supply Configurator

    I'll ask Redbeard to check that. He's the configurator and power guru. Thanks!
  12. Hey guys, we got a power supply configurator up similiar to our memory configurator. If you just want to take a look and give us any feedback that would be appreciated. It does not do a specific wattage rating like some calculators. Tell us what you think. CORSAIR PSU CONFIGURATOR

    is my 620 enough for crossfire?

    Yeah, it will do fine with those cards.
  14. Actually, I would go with what our Tech Support guys said. They have access to the PSU info that I don't. DFI 939 boards predated my time at Corsair so those guys are the best source of info.
