Pressing power button only gets fraction of a sec of power then PSU trips. I tried my old PSU whickh is only over 1 year old and same thing. On top of that I decided to use my old system which I'm still working on for my buddy and the Sapphire HD 3850 that Newegg replaced for me now has huge white bars on the screen during POST and fails to boot past POST at all! Thank goodness for my old GeForce 6200 as at least I can cry about it to you guys. Unfortunately I won't be able to frag until new board arrives ( those newbs are so lucky!). I hope MSI is fast. I need my fix! Oh and Newegg is gonna replace the hd 3850 again. I love that company.
Rockr, did you ever change the thermo compound on the NB? My MSI board has been no trouble since I did mine, although right now it's sitting in the box my Crosshair III came in, I am waiting for a 4 pin Y connector for my cpu cooler fans then I can fire this new MB up.

Sure did. It helped a little. Went from 63c idle to 53c idle, but over the last couple of days it's been creeping up to 57, then 59 then BUMP! as my sound card rectifiers unloaded, no post

yea the secret with doing RMAs with newegg is to telephone it in. Never do it electronically. It gets put on the back burner and then they charge you for a restock fee.

So, I just went to the dreaded Best Buy to look for a pair of Sennheiser headphones. Didn't buy cause their selection/prices are crap, but I did, however, stop by the components section to browse. Held a Corsair H50 in my hands, and the spirit of water cooling must have come over me. Now I can't get water cooling out of my head! I need some major PROS and CONS of water cooling guys! Also, (Yes, I am aware of the Water Cooling section & Headphones section, but I trust value Scout's opinions highly) what are some Sennheiser recommendations (models)?

All I can say on the matter is I love the H50. It's simple and it works, as for Sennheiser, I only have experience with their microphones; as in pro audio. I've sung through many different brand of mics in almost 14 years of being a lead vocalist and Sennheiser is one of the best sounding mics money can buy. That's the problem though, money. Whoowee! are they expensive and in the bar that doesn't make sense to me as they're not any better sounding to my ear than my good old cheap and easily replaceable V-Techs. I love those things. Rugged as a mossberg shotgun and cheap. I have the same V-tech mic I've used for the last 8 years. I've worn the paint off the windscreen mesh. Probably from all the whiskey Anyway back on topic; if Sennheiser headphones are anything like their mics they gotta be good.

My daughter works for Best Buy and I she can buy it for me for cost plus 10 percent. It is a Very Nice Unit. It is as good as any air cooler out there Bar NONE. Even the Thermalrights Copper.
