after my last posting's here, i went and did the "short the green & black wire" test & see IF PSU does power anything connected,
( aka, fan's or periphials, whatever...) well, in doing that test and YES it did power my test fan that i had connected. with that
done, i got a bit curious, and i have this ANTEC Power Supply Tester which also has the pin-socket's for to test voltage of the
3.3v. /5.0v./12v. line along with an green LED that it's indication of PSU is OK............in using this , all reading's & the Green LED
all point this Corsair PSU is good... . . . ... .....
now, keep in mind when this all first started, i gutted everything out from the cse and did the bench setup test with the Gigabyte
MoBo setting uponit's Retail Box; and got the "DEAD, will NO start to post or anything" = 3 times, i tried.... then i switched and
placed an old backup {OCZ 550w.} PSU & WHAM....booted up fine & dandy.........then diconnected this OCZ & replaced the
Corsair TX750 back upon, and got NO joy, NADA, nop>>no way
>>no how>> . . . . . . from there i commenced and
went through Corsair's sight and got a case number and within 10 minutes i got an RMA number and was ask to just RMA the PSU
& was stated usually takes anywhere from 3 day's to 5 for the turnaround/replacement, once received.....
{ NOW, that was COOOL to hear and get for Customer Service, on a Saturday, even.... }
.....now, i have gotten done packing this Corsair PSU and will just have it ready to send off first thing Mon. AM; >>>>>
I was trying to contemplate about's the reading's i got with the PSU tester and all, so I reached into my stock shelf and
have this ASUS MoBo with the 3800w/stock Heatsink, cpu & ram still attached......figure I give this a shot and see for with
connected to the Corsair PSU ( Bum'd one...) HOLY CRAP ! ? ! ?
.....the setup booted up and i was in the Bios Screen ! ? ! ?

.....sooooo, NOW i don't know IF i should RMA this thing or not, OR need to change/add Information for here to the Tech Support/
RMA report with the PSU when i do send it in??? ...anyone with a suggestion / comment for this situation I have at hand,
would much appreciate it . . . . { sorry if I have made this a L-O-N-G post, just stump'd for here.... ............}

little update for the day.
@rockr69
I rearranged the h50 to get a more natural look for the tubes.


Waiting for the gtx 465 by Raspinudo, on Flickr

Also, ordered the last parts for the build, the three 120mm fans. I had to go with ap13's which I didn't really want but they should do their job just fine. My plan is to use two of the AP 13s on the window(top exhausting and bottom blowing cool air on the gpu, and use the third one in the 5.25 drive bays to bring extra cold air in. BTW, if anyone could give me advice on how to install that one, I would greatly appreciate it.

I also tacked on a couple extra goodies for the scout since they didn't cost too much, one NZXT sleeved 24 pin extension, and two 8 pin PCI E sleeved extensions. (Links Mobo Extension,PCI E Extension). I would have also gotten it for the 8 pin power cable next to the CPU, but I don't really feel like loosening up the mobo again to jiggle it back there lol. Regardless, the new cables should really set this thing off, the only asthetic I would want to cap it all off would be a rockr69 HDD cover plate to hide my wire mess lol. BTW I still don't know how that female molex plugs into the PSU, as all of the others coming off of the case were male plugs.

Now just waiting till Wednesday or so when everything comes in and I can start it for the first time(fingers crossed.)

You're definitely making some excellent progress. I noticed you have your H50 fan as an intake like Corsair recommends, so how bout when you get her running you shoot us some temps so we can compare the intake vs exhaust temps. Good Work Scout!

Yeah I'd for sure go with the RMA. Maybe your Asus system isn't pulling the load your sig rig is. I don't know, but like E said then you can concentrate on other symptoms if there are any after the RMA.

now i cant close the side panel, i know the back of the case got more space due to the shape
but the front panel cables overlap with the 24 pin, this is where i cant shut the side
and i feel there so much space wasted next to the PSU!
what do u think? am thinking intake like cm690
but what kind of steel is there?
scouts!!
