I might be a wuss but I would never do that. I have a PSU die on me and I just replaced it since it was 3 years old. You guys make me feel like I know nothing!
Another one bites the dust :-(
ANNND I'm back. Best Buy had a decent sale for a Thermaltake 600W for $52. Picked that up, installed yesterday. Turns out also that when the PSU bit the dust, something was writing on my hard drive and corrupted my OS on my drive so just got done reinstalling windows and getting things running again. Luckily I already have most of my important data set back on a spare drive.
Glad to hear it didn't take anything else out with it.
Sorry mate - I guess that's why most people have separate folding comps... although for people like you and me who don't have extra hardware, that's not a possibility. Thanks for folding, though.
As for the PSU, sorry to hear about that. Was it a nice one? Still under warranty?
Ouch RIP for your PSU, if you cant RMA :(
yeah..bad thing! The last time my PSU failed...brought with him the motherboard! :( You are lucky!
