out last night and all..........come to find out the PSU took a dump ! ! ! Problem i have is when you hit the power button,
you get just a millisec of power; flash of the hhd & pwr led's & fans turn for just a millisec., then nothing; just sit's there
with pwr led on BUT nothing..... I have NO idea WHAT the heck happened; this is the first time i ever had a PSU
go on me just as this.......bad enough, this is the Corsair TX750 i got from NewEgg on Dec. 30, 2009 . . . . . only 9 month's old ! ! !
SO, i guess it's over to Corsair's web sight for and RMA issue . . . . . Just to confirm this PSU problem, i do have an old
OCZ 550 PSU, and install'd with MoBo setup on bench setup; WHAM ! ! system boot's up and all . . . . ..... .....
just wished i knew WHAT happened OR ??? IF i did something wrong. . . . . IDK . . .

It happens mr.Charles. RMA through Corsair and you'll be up and running. I went through two mobos before I figured out my proccy went too and now everything been smooth sailing. It's the nature of the game. With the volume of components being shipped out by manufacturers it's bound a few slip through quality control. At least you have a backup unit.

Great, glad it works well and i think in theory it would improve performance too. Does mounting a heatsink like this create any problems do to weight distribution on the motherboard? Seems to me it might stress it more but maybe since i have a backplate its not an issue.

My Newest Mod..

Okay, I bought this 15 dollar ceiling fan at the Thrift store. It is a Hunter Douglas Fan with chrome and Clear Acrylic fins. Plus I had to have it. It has a Blue cold cathode as the light.. My Neighbors don't know what to think. Here is the pics.

If anything it'll help. Heat wants to go up so if you can help it all will be good. Just be sure to upgrade your front intake by either adding a fan to you 5.25"bay or changing out the stock 140 in the front. I know the led looks cool (why I haven't changed mine), but I think we can all agree it's pretty anemic for anything more stressful than stock. So you'll need more air volume.

It's blue and you know how I feel about that, but that's BADASS!!! General. I feel like Tron is going jump out at any minute.

.... yeah, your probably right for that reasoning there rocker69. I had just went over and researched the
Corsair _ PSU sight for any other testing's and i see that i can give a try of "shorting" the green & black wire;
along with a load upon; = attaching a fan would be the "cheapy" thing, just in case it get's fried . . .
. . . so, i am going over to do just that and see " WHAT " result's i am gonna get . . . . . . brb . . . .

Great, thanks. Do you think a fan in the 5.25 bay would be better than putting one into the left side panel?

you mean this kind of heavy heatsinks or the orientation...
well there won't be a problem in any case
as you said, with backplate and all. it's looking to rear or top of the case is no issue. and those backplates are designed to hold them in place, so...
you are good to go

Seems pretty tight and I thought you guys would have some great input for me before I buy. I purchased a Cogage True Spirit and my concern is that it will nearly touch the top of the case and somewhat block the top exhaust fan. even the V8 I was considering does. Since there are no other vents on the top of the case, i dont want heat to build up. The usual way to mount the heatsink is so the heatsinks fan blows towards the rear of the case. If I mounted it 90 degrees so that the heatsink fan blew upwards towards the top, it might create more space for the top exhaust fan to pull other case heat out AND help move the air out quicker. The rear fan would also help too. Is it ok and advisable to mount the fan like this? Any other solutions? Thanks.
yes.. You will be just fine blowing hot air up and out of the case.. Great solution.
