I dont understand what you where trying so say either TheReciever

As for going to other forums and asking everyone if they have sent their B3 to RMA the answer to that is not only no but no freaking way in hell will i ever do that
Most other forums are pure cancer so i would rather stab myself then post on sites like LTT

If anyone wants it that much go do it yourself and deal with all the trolls

+1 No idea what he was trying to say. And TC and shilka both were going to other forums to try to help people, but shilka was being harassed to no end. Not to mention there might be some international laws about asking consumers what they have purchased and whether or not they have completed an RMA for it.

Sig's kind of broke a little. It's okay, I needed to update it anyway XD

Wow. You've been hating me ever since I decided to stop caring about the problems with all the changes to OCN's look and feel. Do you realize that this is the only reason you have a problem with me? I did nothing to you whatsoever, BUT EVER SINCE I TOLD YOU IN THAT DUMB OCN LOGO THREAD THAT I'M NO LONGER GOING TO CARE ABOUT THE PROBLEMS, you've been hating on me. I'm sick and tired of it. Stop it already. Allow me my damn freedom to choose what I care about. The fact that I decided to stop caring about these changes to OCN has absolutely nothing to do with our friendship or how I feel about you or anything like that, yet you seem to have taken it personally and I'M TIRED OF IT. I'm willing to forget all of this if you are so that we can just get back to being friendly with each other. This is absolutely ridiculous.

 

However, if you wish to continue hating me simply because I absolutely REFUSE to continue on that stupid dark negative path of hating all these changes to OCN and being angry about it every day, then tell me now so that I know and that'll be the end of it (and I probably won't talk to you anymore as well). We were pretty good friends up until I decided to let go of all this hate and frustration with OCN's changes. I refuse to continue being obsessed with hating on OCN's changes. That doesn't mean I like the changes. It doesn't mean I don't like you. It doesn't mean I disagree with your opinion of OCN's changes. No. It means I decided to let go of the hate and the negative energy. I have enough crap to deal with every day with my personal problems as it is, so I need to avoid carrying unnecessary baggage so that my daily travels in life can be a little easier. You can hold fast to the way you feel about OCN's changes, it doesn't matter to me, but don't hate me because I refuse to join you on that path. Once I got off that damn path, I felt a million times better - except it seems to have cost me my friendship with you. I don't get it. If I have to get back on that path in order to become your friend again, then you can forget it!

 

So please, let's just agree to disagree and move on. Technically, we don't actually disagree. I just don't want to care or think about these dumb changes to OCN anymore. If you want to, then that's fine, but that doesn't mean I have to in order to have a friendship with you. You can be as miserable as you want, but don't hate me because I refuse to join you in your misery.



Loneliness is a good thing to share with someone.

Thank you. Yeah, I have been on other forums to help people with PSU-related stuff, but OCN seems to be the only place where that kind of assistance is appreciated, so I have decided to say "screw all other forums".

EVGA 750 B3

Damn it.
Tomorrow an EVGA 750 B3 arrives for me .. should I refuse delivery?
I've only seen JonnyGuru's review, and now I'm a bit frustrated.
And, well ... I live in Brazil, so I would not risk saying it's a new lot.

EVGA should have fixed the problem a long time ago by now but there is no way to know if they actually did or not
As long as you are not overloading the PSU there should not be a problem

Edit: look at the box and see if there is a date of manufacture or a serial number you can look up
If the unit was manufactured before october 2017 i would return it but if its made after the problem should have been fixed

To necro this thread it appears that EVGA and/or Super Flower have fixed the OPP problem

Tomshardware has a review of the 650 watt B3 and this one did NOT fail any of the tests
https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews...-psu,5624.html

They said something about re-testing the 450/750 and 850 watt B3 models

Interesting that ... But so long after the previous tests, is it still relevant ?
Good to know they finally listened to Tom's.

The 450 test was quite appaling TBH.

EVGA did say they where going to fix it and it appears that they did indeed do that so a B3 passing all the tests confirm that the problem was fixed at some point
Not that a B3 is all that great value as its somewhat overpriced for what you get

The problem with non working OPP has been fixed but you should still not buy a B3 unless its on sale or something
You can get a Seasonic Foucs Plus for just a little bit more and those are much better
