who knows tho... the end result is the same.. I am running on a 1.66G dual with onboard graphics...
You helped me realize here that I forgot to say that it's the damage those constant surges do over the course of time - particularly to sensitive electronics. So it's not that a single one of those surges I mentioned could fry anything, but constant daily bombardment will add up and shorten the life of sensitive electronics.

Its a double edged sword...

These surges from the power company degrade the lifespan of electronics.
The surges that occur when powering up 2 - 3 times a day degrade the lifespan...

Safest option is to find a new hobby

Now of course I am debating selling my Ram and 9550 and getting an i5/i7

nope.... still waiting on it...
hope it arrives soon.

2010/06/02 13:17 International shipment has arrived in the destination country
not sure if Canada Post will track it once it has left CA.

Service Type: Expedited Parcel-USA (6 - 12 business days)
so being shipped on the 25th, i hope to see it next week.

Nothing thats going to help.... Board was bought used here so no warranty, and to replace both psu and board will only cost $200...

problem is it will be a few weeks til I have the 200, so Im thinking maybe just sell the 9550 and ram and get all new....

unless someone talks me out of it.....

i5 750 - P55 FTW - 2x2GB DDR3 would cost about 450 new.....

190 for my 9550, 75 for my ram.......

I pressed the power button on my pc and noting happened... Messed around with it, unplugged the gpu and it finally responded and powered up. So I shut down and tried again with the gpu plugged in and it booted up, but no keyboard and mouse response.. Tried every usb connect, but no response...

So I am down for a week or so, will be browsing the FS section for a good deal, but probably just going to spend the extra $ and get a new on. I wish I had a warranty right now....
Use your house insurance if you have it i had that happen to me last year took out my board and cable modem, hd box and hd tv. Insurance payed for it all tho and i got a 42inch tv out of the deal and new board.

I guess that's the difference between the 150GB and the 600GB.
The technical differences are a new dual-processor drive controller, doubling of the cache to 32MB, platter setup/density (the 600GB has three 200GB platters), SATA-3, and the No-touch ramp load technology which means the heads never touch the disk (longer life).

The extra cache isn't necessary on a 150GB drive, IMO, and SATA 6Gbps is as useful as an elevator in an outhouse. That said, it's amazingly fast compared to other drives I've had. The new SATA-3 Caviar Black 1TB i just bought is also speedy as 7200rpm drives go, but it's got nothing on the `Raptor.

Restoring data from my Windows Home Server took 40-50 minutes this time over a gig network, as opposed to a couple of hours. Boot time into Windows 7 is approximately 20% faster, and both drives are quiet enough that even under full seek, I can't hear them above my case fans. First impression --I'm impressed.

Would running a bios from a different Rev UD3P ruin my 1.6 board? My bios is currently not displayed in CPUID for some reason. I've tried various versions for the 1.6 revision but nothing.

Thanks
