  • And my PSU died....(got a new one)

    Was friday...looking forward to the weekend...looking forward to the CO duel tomorrow...started up the computer.....and a nice electrical sound and no windows....
    Turned out my PSU had died out, was a 400Watt which lasted for a nice 2 years before it died out today.
    Also got a new DVD drive (not RW) since I was using the RW as my main DVD drive for everything.
    Got a new PSU now, from Zalman (the old one of 400Watt was from AOpen, like my casing) which is just as silent, and runs 60Watt more at 460W. :)
    Me going to check out BF2 now to see how everything goes.
    First component in 2 years that died on me, not bad I geuss.

    Luckily it was all fixed in three hours, thank god for that one faithful computershop with good stuff and awesome closing times :)

    When everything was plugged back in it still didnt start up (power was there) so for about 30 mins I was very nervous about the PSU taking the vid card with it but luckily it was just one of those damn PSU connectors you tend to forget...(floppy drive...why do I still have one)

    UPDATE:
    Everything works fine....maybe even better, Im not sure, seems I got 10-20 more fps in single player karkand, cant really try this till TG server fills up.
    Got around 70 fps, 80-90 if half the screen is the sky :)

      Whats even funnier (and a bit unexpected) my new DVD-rom makes NO sound what so ever and BF2 works just fine with it, NO sound what so ever, I cant tell the difference between something in it and it being empty :D

        Last time my psu died, it was a storm, and a transformer blew outside, and sent like 50volts back into my house and my computer started smoking. Luckily it was only my PSU that was smoking and nothing else.
