Rebuild

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I purchased a Seasonic 850w KM3 PSU for my system about 6 weeks ago. At the time, I didn't really have a reason to replace the perfectly functioning Rosewill Hive 1k. I got it installed into my system and all was good. I don't know how many of you are like me, but I will often look into my case window and formulate more efficient ways of wiring, lighting etc.

I started with this (Rosewill PSU)
cfbuild005_zps70ecca57.jpg

To this (Seasonic & lots of powder coating and mods)
CFbuild006_zps3ec3ccf3.jpg


To this
CF2_zpsa5efa006.jpg

Well everything was fine until I got a BSOD for a pagefile error (34 days after I installed the SeaSonic). Then my RAID 0 dropped and finally my optical drive literally burnt up. Yes, the magic smoke was released! I checked the PSU and found the Molex 5v was O/L according to my Fluke DMM. As you can see, the Ultra eXo uses an internal molex power distribution strip. Everything that was attached to it was damaged. 2x WD Caviar Black 1TB's, Optical drive, & a 1TB Seagate backup drive. My 512GB Samsung Pro SSD seems to be OK. Using the Samsung Magician software I check the drive and it passed all the SMART tests etc. SeaSonics RMA process is a complete joke and they will NOT help with anything damaged by the PSU.

I reinstalled a 5yr old Rosewill Hive 1k PSU to check the system for damage. I was able to reinstall Win7 Pro 64 onto the SSD and added a new 2TB Seagate drive for my documents. I am very pleased I was able to restore much of the data from my backup. Now I get random drops on anything connected to the SATA ports on the mobo. Except for the SSD.

Now that I am really irritated with the entire thing, I am going to retire much of my current system. I ordered the following:

ASUS Z77 Sabertooth 1155
Fractal Design Define R4 with Window Titanium Grey
ASUS optical drive
6 Corsair SP140 w/ white LED

I am going to transfer over my I7 2700k 1155
2x GTX 560Ti 448 FTW GPU's
1 512GB Samsung Pro SSD
2TB Seagate HDD
16GB (4x4) Gskill 1600 RAM
Corsair H55 CLC
Replacement SeaSonic PSU when it arrives.

I will take my time with this build and get the wiring exactly like I want it, then leave it alone. rolleyes.gif Well, unless I decide to get a GTX 780Ti.... Then I could give my kids one of the GTX 560's each for their PC's. No idea that I am going to do with my brand new FC5v2 fan controller. frown.gif


Anyway, that's my story. I have built about 30 systems now and this is the 1st one to bite me. I guess I was overdue. I am gonna hate to retire the Ultra eXo carbon fiber case. Its amazing but such a PITA to work on/in. I'll just put it in the giant aluminum storage case it came with and tuck it away in the closet for a future build.

Yeah they told me to take it up with the individual MFG's. I was said, yeah because they were totally responsible for your 4 week old PSU failing, right? Zero response from SeaSonic on that. mad.gif

look if there was no overclock on the parts that did fail you can still RMA them ( if still under their own warranty) but Legally that psu Manufacture should cover all the damage , anyway try all the options email all =.=! I hope you get something

Case arrived today. The front panel fan housing was loose and rattling around. Upon further inspection, one of the front panel retention standoffs is broken. mad.gif Contacting FD now. Also, the top part of the case where the uppermost fan openings are located is VERY flimsy and almost looks dented in. Its concave!

What a great case. It is so easy to build. I wish the front panel opened the other direction. Why make it open toward the window (left)? That make no sense.

Here are a few pics. I am in the process of installing, updating & patching. Meh...

It was a sad moment to pack away the CF tower of power. I love that case, but it was time to move on.
