Power supply going bad? - Page 3

post #21 of 22
I've never dealt with newegg.

It's not going to harm to ask to see if anything can be done.

At the end of the day there's a slim chance it is a fault on the board and that technically means you would be covered by the warranty.

Actually... thinking of that, it might be a good idea.

Lets say it is a faulty board, you could connect the new PSU and then *fizz boom melt* back to square one.

UPDATE: I called ASUS and was able to get an RMA (I hope, was told the number should come within a couple hours by email). I figured I would try this since I believe it was the fault of the motherboard (how could it not be? It melted my damn 8 pin!). I'd rather spend the $ for shipping to at least give them a chance instead of buying a new one, even after all I've been hearing is how crappy their customer service is as of late. The guy I spoke to on the phone said that if ASUS finds that it was physically damaged (i.e. jamming a screwdriver in there, etc.) or the fault of another component, then I would have to pay for repairs. I just hope repairs aren't anywhere near the price of buying a new board if they stiff me on the warranty.

My only question is, why can't this stuff be sent out to an independent company that is indifferent to the outcome to make the decision? It's easy and greedy for a company just to say "Nope. Something else caused your problem. Pay us more to fix it."
