I got my replacement floppy cable yeaterday, and was a little surprised to see it was one of the matching Venus ones. Curiousity, to see if they actually sent me a working one, almost got the best of me. I opened my case and was gonna replace it, when I said to hell with it. I'd have to move too many things around to replace it, for something that isn't even visible, and I've learned my lesson about rooting around in this thing unnecessarily.

hey Rapty, glad you got that sorted out. i too was one of the many with a bad floppy cable.

never heard/saw that type of error/warning....i would guess that the 520 you are running, might be a tad overloaded? i know the 520's are not sli certified, and even thought i dont have 2 vid cards (yet) i did upgrade to the sli 600 psu.

 

those 2 xfx gtx...plus everything else might be putting a strain on your psu, not to mention your 4 sticks of geil...

 

...with such a kick a$$ rig that you have...a psu upgrade might just be the ticket....

and i know you are gonna wanna oc the bejesus outta that monster!

 

congrats on joing the "venus club"
