I know these ain't cheap, but they're pretty good PSUs. Together with the OCZ GameXStream/FSP Epsilon, they would be on the top of my list.

Fiance feels bad cuz she may have heard it whining yesterday before she went to work, and forgot to tell me. My bank card is still in my wallet, but she just handed me hers...

LOL...

that 850W Silverstone will run just anything. It's the PSU K|ngP|n used when setting his latest world record 3DMArk06 score. It powered an X6800 (overclocked to insanity with liquid nitrogen cooling), 8800GTX's in SLI (also overclocked, but not too extreme), and the rest of that rig. Should be fine for you

I think PSU companies should have a guarentee or something were if their product kills anything in your comp, they should re inburse you.

Man thats bad.

Maybe it wasn`t the PSU. It could have been a power interruption or surge. Do you have a UPS?

PC&P has reconciled and states "we will be happy to cover your costs, and are pleased to help. IF this was an instance where our product has caused you an inconvenience, we are prepared to investigate the problem further, and would be more than happy to compensate you if the product is found at fault". They followed up with, "We have received your inventory, and are currently processing your request of $1,430.00..." I think that is awesome...

No UPS, but I got one today at fry's, cheapo apw 500...

To further the information at hand, I spent 319.99 on a new e6600, and it does 4014Mhz just like the last one, turns out my mem was not dead, the mobo I picked up is the same, but I got it open box for 99.98... The powersupply cost me 159.99 cuz I didn't want to wait for newegg.com to ship it out to me. My water cooling equipment was fine. PC&P have handled my requests quite gracefully, and promptly for that matter, and I hope to further my business with them. Oh, one of my hard drives is fried. 2x 320 7200.10's on the way from newegg.com for raid 0 goodness... I love my fiance for feeling bad and handling the expenses (she doesn't know PC&p will cover the expenses)

Stupid expensive rocks!

Hopefully everything works out..That's horrible, man. I have a PCP&C 510 SLI that has been rock-solid from the day I installed it. Quite a freak accident, you never hear of PCP&C's stuff going bad.
