Antec Power supply problem + Sonata II case

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I just recently bought Antec Sonata II case with 450W power supply.

Well, power supply was crap and i had to get this replaced. While i was replacing it another dude showed up with exact same powersupply that was bad.
Checked the interenet and it seems like Antec 450W power supplies have had alot of failures, and antec even admitted that a bad batch of PSUs went out on the market.

I wonder if anyone here had the similar experience with Antec 450W PSUs. What was the RMA time? or should i just stick with enermax in the future.

Also Q for Sonata II case owners.. The door on the front that opens and gives access to DVD/CD drive.. is the bottm hinge that holds the door broken? Mine was cracked when i got it and door doesnt close as easly now.

the Smart-Power II series under 500W are not very good in general.
