haha yeah i had a vertex 3 just to try the speeds out. RMA's it 3 times then eventually switch to Crucial C300. Anyway, Is there any evidence of dmg to the wires? like near the switch? where are they placed (in reference to parts in case)? is it plugged in? jk that last one.

All i can think is that something is up with the switch.

My best guess would be a blown inverter. I have inverters fry all the time - there is a chance it could be the tubes, but after a month that seems unlikely. I'd put my money on a new inverter fixing the issue.
post #7 of 7
a lot of CCFL inverters die quickly not because of the circuitry itself, but because the housing offers little or no ventilation for them. Between different brands of inverters, the actual circuit is pretty much identical; it's the enclosures that vary and the number, size, and placement of the vet holes make a huge impact on the life expectancy. If you want to have the best life, then simply run the inverters without a housing.
