    RE: PC went

    RE: PC went

    I think that 750 watts was enough for that rig. I think it is likely just a bad cap that you got with the psu.

    RE: PC went

    from my earlier experiences you just blew a power supply.depending on what pc you have should be less than a couple hundred to re power the pc.and more importantly make sure you have an inexpensive surge protector on it..

    RE: PC went

    Yup I ordered a Surge Protector and a new 850watt PSU from Corsair. They will be here tomorrow. Then I will send out my 750w and get it RMAd and sell it.

    RE: PC went

    750W was not enough for that system. You had virtually zero head room. The 850W will definitly be better. See this calc here:

    When I put in your specs with 20% capacitor aging it suggests 786W.

    RE: PC went

    Dual 6970's I would have gone 1000W just for comfort. Just don't tell Corsair you were running dual 6970's when you try and RMA that 750.

    RE: PC went

    Probably blew a capacitor somewhere. Sometimes they will overheat and 'vent' out through the bottom, but still keep continuity. If it's on your motherboard, you will probably never find it. I would highly advise using a surge protector.

    RE: PC went

    I had a similar issue with my pc a year ago, it had a 700w psu running SLI, quad core, 3 500gig hds, and 8 gigs of memory.

    I upgraded everything on that pc except for the case and psu. I did have that loud pop and it did work for a while but then one day it wouldnt power up and I knew what it was but at the time I was too lazy to change it.

    It was an Ultra psu 700w, now I have a 1200

    I swear by Corsair PSUs. I should have known from the start it couldnt handle it. My previous PC had the original Corsair HX1000.

    That would be the AX1200 which as it says comes in at 1200W. I've got an AX750, hopefully never need that 7 year warranty that comes with the AX line. Bought it on sale cause I needed a new PS, and then of course right after that the HX was on sale for a lot cheaper!

    Yeah the AX1200. It's like 270$ though. It's 100% Modular which makes it awesome. The HX series are partially modular. The 24 and 8 pin connectors are hard wired. The rest is modular.

    It's funny how this thread is on the "Hot Thread" list.

    RE: PC went

    Haha.

    OK...

    Intel i7 2600 @ 4.8Ghz on hybrid water/air (Corsair H80)
    Gigabyte Z68 UD4 (sick board)
    12GB 1600mhz
    2xOCZ Agility 2.0 80GB in RAID 10 (double capacity double speed, no redundancy) - I read a GB a sec (995mb/s).
    1x1TB generic Seagate
    Nvidia 580 GTX
    22" LG 120hz 3d vision monitor (was good when I bought it, bit out of date now).

    Whereas yours is all about the screens, mine is really all about the hard disk performance. It really is phenomenal. Windows 7 boots in about 9 secs. I don't ever wait for anything. At all. In Skyrim, on loading screens, I don't get to read more than the first 3 words of the titbits of information that pop up to entertain you while its loading. Which can be annoying, expecially if it was an interesting piece of lore or something. Everyone who's used it had their mind blown, and of course the 3d is great too.

    What's your windows performance index? I'm 5.8, just 0.1 off max, very frustrating, my CPU's fault.
