    If I find myself becoming personally offended by others comments, I tend to unsubscribe from the thread. Some people out there are just trying to start shit and enjoy "hooking" people:shadedshu
    Mindweaver and blkhogan say thanks.

    Not sure how bad the psu is but I got it at staples so it can't be good. It ran a old AMD 64 before it got its new home.

    If I told u.. I'd have to kill u
    I was having problems with one of my 965's kicking errors at stock clocks. It turned out to be my psu. I was using adapters like your using now. I ended up getting a new psu with an actual 8 pin and it stopped. Thats why I had to order a new one from the Egg, for the machine I raped the psu out of that had an 8 pin. Doesnt Staples sell Cooler Master? The one here does. They are more than you would pay from an online seller, they work in a pinch though.

    I was thinking of picking up their 500W or 550W. I saw on the egg that the 500W is sleeved, but the 550W isn't, are newegg's photos just out of date?

    Its hard to say. Most Cooler Masters come sleeved. The lower powered ones not always. I run Cooler Master on all my rigs, been very reliable and stable. The new one I ordered is this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817171031
