    More pics, when you have the time for it, and after you clean the PSU up a bit, would be most welcome and appreciated... :)

    Oh, and I told you everything would be fine ;)
    Loud bangs are your best friend, if/when a PSU decides to crap out

    I had a explosion that killed the disk controller and one drive immediately, then one failed in a couple months.

    nothing quite like the oh shit feeling when sparks come out.

    Happy to see your hardware is alive and running.

    And that's a really nice PSU. Good looks, and reliable!

    Glad you got her running again:toast:
    Now if you really want to stress test that new PSU try crunching those AMD cards in World Community Grid:)
     
    T4C Fantasy and Norton say thanks.
