Which company do you think I should call about my RMA first?
Here is the list that needs replacing
ASUS P8P67 Pro Motherboard
Corsair XMS3 ( 3x2GB ) RAM
EVGA GeForce 450 SC
Intel Core i5 2500K CPU
Ultra LSP650 650-Watt PSU

I also had a Corsair H50 Hydro Series but returned it for a CM V6

I've had to RMA the Motherboard, GFX Card and CPU 3 time because of various issues. The first time idk what happen but I turn the computer on and mysterious blue smoke wafts through the room CPU Mobo and GFX card dead, but the PSU, RAM, HDD's are ok. The second time the motherboard Fan controller quit on me and fried the CPU and GFX card and the motherboard followed seconds thereafter again the RAM, HDD's, and PSU are ok. And yesterday I had installed a Corsair H50 Hydro Series and had it snuggly mounted returned Motherboard to stock settings ( turning auto pll overvoltage off of course ) and ran a Prime 95 Blend Stress Test the CPU got to 80-85C ( can't remember which it happened so fast ) computer shutdown so I removed the cooler and bought the CM V6 listed in Sig.

I got the V6 installed hooked everything back up and turned it on... And it wouldn't post. So I tried moving the CLRTC jumper, unplugging PSU draining the power by pressing the power button 10 times ( holding it for 15 seconds on the 10th time ), removing the CMOS battery, re-seating the RAM, re-connecting the HDD's, unplugging the Cooler replacing with stock, switching GFX card slots, unplugging GFX card, using backup GFX card ( which is powered by the lane and didn't need PSU connection ), I tried adding another 300W PSU in addition to my 650W,Disconnecting all case fans, running a MemOK! onboard RAM test. Tried using the crash-free bios feature with both a thumbdrive with latest bios and the motherboard disc which also failed.
In tests one and two I placed the RAM, and GFX card in another PC the RAM was ok the GFX card was definitely fried. I ran a PSU check using a tester I have. The PSU powered my OC'ed Rig for a couple weeks on this third board until the Cooler I had busted and was giving me higher temps than normal (35C idle and 60C Prime 95 Blend load at stock settings as opposed to the normal 21ish idle and 75C ( at most stressful test temp, 60C was the average ) Prime 95 Blend load OC'ed at 5.2 GHz which is when I returned it and got the H50 which was even worse and yes I had it mounted right it was 40C idle and 80-85C Prime 95 Blend load )

In hindsight I probably should have checked if the PC booted after the computer shut down when I had the H50 in and kept the H50.

Sorry for the long winded post but I need some advice.

Also I was using the 1305 Bios which.... seems to have been removed from their site...

Looks like none of them are taking calls...
I was hoping at least their live chat would be open

Also when I complain to intel today anyone know what batch numbers i should request ( if there are some that seem better for multiplier rates etc than others )? This is of course if they give me a choice which i highly doubt (one because those batches have likely complely shipped by now and also they'll likely only give me one from the newest batch)

Has anyone here dealt with Ultra's RMA policy? From what I hear it's not so good.

I've never had to RMA through the actual companies before as I usually find the defects way before my 30 days are up XD.

I've checked the ram in a few desktops I have here and run memory checks on them and they appear ok so I guess I'll still RMA it but deal with it last.

I shouldn't have returned the H50 >v< I could just complain to Corsair then it's their coolers issue that caused this one.
