I don't have another PSU to try but I tried a friends. As far as I could tell the only thing it took was my LG DVD-ROM drive. Everything else appears to work fine. The thing that sucks is having to wait for a new PSU so I can finally use this new system.

On the plus side was able to get to 2.8 stable using the stock Intel HSF and stock voltage of 1.2v

My System Specs

Default lucky escape

Well at least the MB connector didnt melt into your mainboard taking the RAM and CPU with-it!

Hopefully RMA wont take too long.

Good to know that everything else is in working order. RMA sucks, but that's life for us 'net buyers...

Last time I RMAed a PSU to NCIX it was quick, like 8 days total most of that shipping. So at least it wont be a month or some other crap like RMAing to the manufacture.
