A 420W with PFC blew up on me, 18 moths old, to many parts are blown and
some you just can't get.


Well with not by that brand or the other 3 that are made by the same firm
again..

Was not a Power surge as those parts are still intack..

Get a PSU that has a 3 year warrantee, not may to chose from, I have a feeling
that Thermaltake has a 3 year factory warrantee but not here.

Are you chinese by any chance, Woger?

You've started replacing consonants on the ends of words with dots.

Any particualr reason for that?

But you seem to be putting extra dots at the end of EVERY sentence.

Why is it that your "Nervous Finger" only occurs at the ends of sentences
and not throughout the sentences?

Hang on, if Woger lists all the gear that craps out on him, it'll blow
my data cap for the month !

Why do some people have so many problems, yet other people do not, using
exactly the same gear ? What's the common theme ?
