    Never ever get a cheap PSU, it can cost you your entire computer, like it did with mine! *insert words of mass hatred* Never ever buy any PSU's made by Q-Tec, they're unreliable and cheap *19 for a 400 Watt PSU, and lasted just below 2 months* I now have to buy myself another Athlon XP 2000+ chip because AMD won't take it back, and my motherboard 'might' qualify for an exchange for another, but I'll have to lie about what happened. *I'm probably the last person to figure this out*

    If you have a cheapy PSU in your computer at the moment, change it for an approved one!

    *Plans a terrorist attack on Q-Tec's headquaters* :snip: :shoot2:

    Hahaahaa! Die!! Die!!

    Ahem, anyway.... :D

    Say no to Q-Tec.

    Sorry to hear that you lost, but i wouldnt blame Q-Tec, I will blame you. Its not their fault that they make POS product. Its your fault for buying it. Also there are so many reviews of all the hardware out there, you should have known better.
    So take it easy, its not against the law to make a cheap product.

    yeah well some people just see the bottom dollar first

    i have never burdened a chep PSU with a heavy load, but i have seen several cheap- ones give way under load, its never a surprise that they do, only a surprise when u see what they can cause!

    anyway, an example would be my friends el-cheapo PSU went kaboom, heres a shot

    :p well the guy that sold it to me said it will do the job, and it was reliable (coughs some).

    Anyway, I would look through the internet for reviews on PSUs, if I knew that some could fry your computer like that picture 'sKuLLsHoT' posted, I mean, damn, that's over-kill, did they supply a fire-extinguisher with that PSU?

    Thank the 'puter-fairy, that mine wasn't that bad.

    Still... Say no to Q-Tec!! :snip: :shoot2:

    :D

    well actually, half of it is run under the carpet now (just dont tell the landlord ;) )

    and luckily for my flatmate, the PSU only took out his cd drive and burner, but then it has also probably contributed to the instability of his HDD and mobo :D

    Blame the consumer for purchasing defective merchandise because they should have known better because web reviews would have told them so? :bounce:

    I had my first PSU blow up yesterday. I just upgraded my sister's PC to 256MB from 128MB and booted back up to be greated by a pop and smoke. :(

    $10 plus riddin' dust bunnies later and everything was right again. :D
