Lol, yeah, but my OC skills aren't at that point, I'll be happy with 40k if I can get it.
Anyways, things didn't go so smoothly today. I swiped the AX850 out of my current rig to put into this one but as I took it out I heard a rattling. I figured at first it was just a screw or something but I quickly realized it was much bigger than that. After poking through the fan grill with a screw driver I found what looks like a heat sink that had come loose and was flopping around. Time to decide....send it back or:
Yup, so much for that warranty. I want this build moving forward, no way I'm waiting around for a warranty return. Here is what I found loose rattling around:
You can see where it came loose from, there are two more of them to the right and the empty slot where this one fits in:
Under the board you can see that either the solder didn't take or it never happened to begin with, the one of the right is the slot for this guy and the one on the left is what it should loook like.
Anyways, I'm going to try a little hot glue to see if that holds it in place, if not, I'll have to give my weak soldering skills a test. So far I'm not impressed with this PSU, I expect a lot more for the $$$ I dropped on this guy.
