Day one cap whine? Doesn't give a good impression especially from one one of the best 850w PSUs in it's price range.
Well it could be one of two things. Whining can be the caps or coils. Buzzing can still be those two, but could also be the Yate Loon fan too as it ramps up in speed with the corresponding load and temperatures.

With the amount of volume that they ship, I can forgive a mishap here and there. Two in a row would an anomaly though.

It shouldn't be the fan as it still buzzes at idle under no load. It's there but faint.

If I went watercooling the buzzing would drive me bonkers. It's that irritating!

Whatever it is it's annoying when under load and it makes me RAGE!

I was so excited to open my new Maximus and see that everything included is black until I opened the second half of the box and feasted my eyes on poo brown SLI and CFX connectors.

Really, Asus?

You mean to tell me that they sell a high end board and can't even have the common decency to give you a BLACK SLI connector?

Yeah let me go out of my way to get a black and red motherboard from a reputable company and while I'm at it I'll throw this poo brown SLI bridge on my cards.

Yeah, same here with my WS Revo, I ordered a black one off ebay for $7.

Ridiculous though, isn't it?

That we spend good money on good boards and get nasty SLI bridges that I won't put in my PC.

post #3869 of 5998
Hey wait, I just bought a Evga 580 from amazon on 9-6. Amazon is listed on the list of etailers. Anyone know how I can get my code? I got no paper from amazon and there is nothing listed on the product page on amazon.

Sorry this is in regards to the batman game.
