    Glad you were able to recover, Arctic. PSU should arrive tomorrow and will resume my journey for 500FSB stable.

    Your story has inspired me a bit. :-)

    what psu did you end up going with? i have a psu story as well - i had a corsair tx750 that gave up the ghost on me - right after i installed my 5850... the system rebooted about 3 times and then nothing...

    did the green/black wire test and it was dead - so off to rma but i didnt want to be down for 3wks so i picked up a seasonic m12d which has been great so far..

    my tx750 when it comes back will just be sitting in the closet

    Package is out for delivery, I've noticed UPS usually delivers in the evening to my location. I'll give another update around the evening (6-8 hours from now).

    Talking Re: ep45-ud3p 8gb fine tweaking...

    Sigh.....just another lemming following following the pied piper of Corsair band wagoon.
    OK, so the Corsair models have outstanding reviews from the sites that really matter; JonnyGuru, HardwareSecrets, PC Perspective and others who really test the hell out of them and push them to see if they still meet their 80+ rating levels at 45 - 50 degrees (C).

    • So what if the 750HX meets its 80+ Silver rating at full power at 45 (C)....yawn.
    • And it puts out 912.7 watts at the same temperature with 83% efficiency.....eh.
    • It comes oh so close to an 80+ Gold rating.....hmmm.
    • OK, so its got outstanding voltage stability and very low electrical noise and ripple.....just like all the top tier units.
    • What about the bling factor? Gotcha!
    • 7 year warranty..... ho hum.

    It makes my 750 watt Antec TruePower New TP-750 feel so inadequate.
    Oh, wait a minute, I bought my psu on cyber-Monday with a special 2-day-only rebate for $70.... never mind

    Here is my windows experience index....I am assuming that 5.9 is the max I can get on the hard drive - for a single sata drive?
