My PSU Died

#1
I have a OCZ GameXStream 850W PSU and when I shut down the PC B-4 I went to bed last it was fine. I got up this morning, pressed the power button, the lights came on and went right back off I was like WTF :confused: so I reached around back and switched it off and went to fix the coffee pot and when I got back I turned it back on and got nothing so I unplugged everything and got 3 known good fans and tried to jump start it just in case something maybe wrong with something in my pc but I still got nothing. This is PSU #2 that I've killed with this PC :(
I've contacted "Steve" with OCZ and I'm waiting for a reply.

Here is one more that I'm considering the only thing is I'd have to run a 240v receptacle for it but I don't mind.

Very nice.. Thats gonna take a few hours of work! Did you have the old PSU all 'cable-tied'? It does take time to get the cables into their optimum placing but very satisfying when they can't be seen.

I'll tell my boss I need some overtime that'll help pay for it. :D
It does take time to get them tied up and out of the way.

Yes I try to keep it as neat inside my case as I can because with wires and cables in the way it can obstruct air flow.

I'll order it thursday so I should have it by the middle of next week :D
No big hurry, it's not like I can't put my hands on a PC until it comes in :rolleyes:

Well I changed my mind I'm going with the 1KW one for the simple fact I can't see spending an extra 75-100 bucks for only 200 more watts. :rolleyes:

Yeah I work with him.
The bad part is the one I have that died I got it off of e-bay from a guy that had his RMA'd so I figure I'll stay away from OCZ's PSUs from now on :D
