    I knew there had to be m04r to it! I feel for my south american brother's, they have been killing you guy's with shipping/import taxxes fee's for year's!

    Lucky you have a friend in that posistion and the mistake was his! Still suck's but could alway's be worse. Without hobbies i think i would be more crazy lol Help's to keep my mind clear & calm (for the most part) I've been semi retired for the last 5yrs (not by choice) no wife, no kid's (that i know of), no grand kid's. 1 niece (6mths) and 1 nephew (8yrs) only. Don't really have many responsibilities other than cost of living. I would donate but i think they steal too much money from the charities, i would rather go there and help them. People been sending aid to Africa for more than 30yrs and not much has changed, so sad really. Beautifull country, good people, bad situation (corrupt government's). Just think up until mid '90's they still had the Apartheid in south africa and civil war is constant. The world is messed up, we're all brother's & sister's.

    I know the shipping is expensive but still is loads cheaper than any offering here, and since no one i know sells it, he who does would stab me excessively.
    I get better service in the US and all around i prefer so send money there.
    So that shipping is not that bad at all. Also i divided in 2 packages.

    Picked up this little guy yesterday. Switched cases and blew both my ssd and my 640 WD black. :(

    [​IMG]

    New SSD with 3 core controller does make me happy though. :)

    Now if hdd prices can drop a bit I can afford to replace my 640 WD black.

    That's actually what I used to get my measurements, then made mine. Of course, I customised it do I could add a rad and pump off to the side. :pimp:

    I did notice it was slightly similar. Now I know why. :). I have a loop on mine too.

    I looked at the SSD connection, and the sata power connector had broken just on the lip that bends down. I think I may have hooked up my power supply connector backwards to the drives.

    They are unrecognizable with any sata port and even in an enclousoure. The WD doesn't even click, spin, or get hot. It just sits there telling me what a failure of a human being I am.

    you may have blown a small safety fuse on the circuit board. they can look almost like a Surface mount cap or resistor. early nintendo ds's had 3 on the main boards and if you hooked up powers wronge or battery backwords these would blow really easy. LOL i used to buy the dead ones and fix them and than resell them. best way look around the power connector
    1
    Turn on the multi-meter and set it to "x1" ohms. This is the lowest resistance rating, and is used to make sure that an electrical component has a continuous connection.

    2
    Attach the red and black alligator clips to the fuse. Attach the red clip to one end of the SMD fuse, while you attach the black clip to the opposite end. Alternatively, if you do not want to remove the SMD fuse from the circuit board, you can use pin leads and touch the red and black leads to opposite ends of the fuse.

    3
    Check for continuity. If your fuse is working correctly, the needle in your analog multi-meter will show a reading. If you have a digital multi-meter, you will see the numbers increase. If there is no change in the reading, the SMD fuse is bad and will need to be replaced.

    All multimeters I know have a "beep"-mode for checking continuity ;)
