Boy did I screwed up!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
3 weeks ago I though either my PSU or mother board went out, I was using a silverstone zeus 1200w single rail to run 3x 480's, 980x all overclocked, 3 water pumps, 9 fans, 2 hdd and 1 ssd.
Anyhow it's been fine for over a year now seemed to have plenty of power plus being set to single rail, then out of nowhere it just shut off finely it got it running again then after playing BF3 for a couple of hours it did it again, then I could never get it going again.

So I ordered a new 1500w silverstone and a new 1366 evga classified and used all the new wires except the one going to the fans because I didn't want to have to mess with all the freaking plugs going to 9 fans ect. plus its the same connector both being silverstone PSU's rolleyes.gif

Anyhow the new evga board lights right up hit the power button NOTHING! Pretty pissed now because I just spent $650 on a new board and PSU mad.gif Guess what it was it turns out it was the freaking the old power supply wire going to the fans, OMG, LOL

Now what? I have a prefectly fine watercooled ASUS extreme III and a 1200w PSU that didn't need replacing thumb.gif

Brilliant =))

You shouldn't have any issues returning the ST 1500, and the mobo if you don't need it... the ZM 1200 was a pretty badass unit, it wouldn't succumb to only three 480s wink.gif

Yeah I think I might put the R3E back in considering it cost me $460 ( Correction $390) new and are getting hard to find now plus I have a waterblock on it all already set up to go there and return or sell the 1366 evga classified and sell the 1200w PSU.
Returning a motherboard to newegg they probably hit you with a restocking fee don't they?

I do this on purpose tbh. When I think there is something wrong with a component I go buy a new one, test it, and return it to the store when I am done. Think of it as free renting.

If it isn't defective, yes.

This is a practice I do not condone. You are creating higher overhead costs to these companies as well as the manufacturer who has to then test your returned item and probably repackage it. Only purchase something if you've exhausted every other option (including friends) and be honest why you're returning it.

When it first didn't fire up with the new board and PSU the first thing that came to mind was the danm 980x was gone Thank God that wasn't it, LOL
I've been using my little tiny netbook with a 10" screen for close to 3 weeks now it sure feels good having a real PC with some balls again biggrin.gif

Think I might actually play some BF3 tonight!!!

They do charge a restock fee, find out what it would be for your board, and then see if anyone here wants it at new price-restock, if not, send it back to the Egg and swallow the loss.

How much is the restock fee?
Well the board has a $40 rebate still so it would come down to $280 from $320, I have to figure it out what's my best option. think I'll keep the 1500w PSU and sell the 1200w zeus not sure on that yet either.
