Yes, most likely you will get a refound for recieving a faulty product. Send them a mail asap if you haven't already done so.

I would shout refund at you to make you see that this is the best way forward. Also you'll know everything that is in your machine.

I will call them as soon as business hours start as I don't have enough patience to wait for an email-reply...

They'll probly have a bunchload of tiny letters saying they're not obliged to give me a refund... I feel weeks of waiting for repairs incoming :/

This is what you get when buying pre-builts tbh. I don't blame you though, I know building a computer feels really risky the first few times and you're tempted to just buy the entire thing. From what I've seen though, most companies accepts taking out the parts and send it in, but that's pretty much out of the question since yours are sealed.

Well,

You're in Belgium, i'm pretty sure the government has already got something like the Statutory rights in the UK. Basically you have a right to return any item within a number of days without any questions asked. For example, this machine hasn't come to you in a sastisfactory condition, it's overheating and has crashed repeatedly.

Now they will offer you a repair. You should legally be allowed to refuse this due to lack of faith of their abilities to do the job. I'm not sure how it will come down with something like a restocking fee. But this is normally if you just want to change it and not a faulty peice of equipment. If they threaten a restocking fee inform them that the equipement is faulty and therefore not liable for a restocking fee.

Do you have a website that you got it from or is it not in english?

Thanks

I've been reading everything I can find in the service agreement, I'll roughly translate the part about the seal.

Quote:
-If the applied seal is still intact, Alternate provides 24 months of guarantee on work hours and parts.
-If one of the components shows any technical problems, we will repair these for free.
Nothing about refunds :/

It's truly a shame. I wouldn't worry too much though. You will get your computer fixed, and you will be able to use it. It all comes down to how long you plan on keeping it. If that video card keeps you good for another year or so, I'd just update it then, even though it will break your warranty.

I hope that they give you a refund, if not the best thing you can do is check to make sure the cooler is seated properly. Check if the 950 and the cooler is making good contact. Also download different temp monitoring programs to see if the temps are just reporting wrong. If all else fails, try borrowing a stock cooler from a friend and seeing if that helps, it may be the cooler's problem (MAYBE). Or you can try to get your 950 RMAed, assuming that it's under warranty =\\ Good luck man, it really sucks to have this happen.

Well,

I'm not sure, you could consider discussing this with the equivilent of trading standards. I can't see how they can only replace parts of a computer when it's overheating like this. They haven't shown a great skill in doing the job correctly already.

So when they sold it, was it sold as a prebuilt from their website?
