    You mean to say that I SHOULDN'T be shuffling my feet across shag carpeting while carrying a CPU in my hand? :p

    Kind of a funny story on the general topic of ESD. Worked for a national retailer,...

    Given the issues you list, sending it in for repair is pretty much your only real option. Sorry.

    I only have rather pedestrian experience with VM's in general, but assuming you had a secondary drive, and the image file for the VM was on that secondary drive, then you should be able to just point...

    Essentially, yes, it's completely normal. I asked Raja (you'll see him knocking about here every now and then) about it once, and let's just say that unless you're a serious hard core -- you have...

    It'll depend on just how desperate they are to clear out the inventory to make room for new stock with a potentially higher profit margin. :D

    I don't get deep into the engineering weeds on these things, but as I understand it the double POST "issue" is necessary for a lot of the OC functions to work. You just need to remember that...

    From everything I have seen, which granted isn't a whole lot, video cards haven't yet managed to saturate the Gen 2 level bus, so at least for a little while longer, Gen 3 is just marketing hype. At...

    It should work, it's just kind of a waste of a higher bandwidth PCIe slot. I had one in a x16 slot on my HTPC, only I forgot to set the BIOS to not default to thinking anything in that slot was a...

    I did see the PM about this the other day, but one thing after another came along and it kind of got lost in the shuffle, so sorry about that. On Thursday there was quite literally a fire to put...

    Actually a good question, and I haven't really considered the implications of mixing GPT and MBR. So I'll be interested in what others have to say about that.

    However, what might be an easier...

    Okay, so my fault for not asking this before, but if you're in the US I can cap the repair fee at $200 for you on this.

    It sounds to me like the motherboard is having issues, and with these kinds...

    Since you're in Italy, there's not a lot I can do to help you unfortunately, except to say that it sounds like you should send it in for an RMA.

    Is it a specific set of ports that do this, or does it happen if you plug the device into any USB port?

    What you describe is what happens when the BIOS hands off control to the OS, and then the bootloader fails to load for whatever reason. So it might just be you got a bad set of discs. Feel free to do...

    Typically while you're still within the return period of the retailer/reseller it's preferred you deal with them. You could send it to us, but if you do so then you basically are giving up the...

    I'm no EE, but I'd say you suffered a capacitor failure or two. Some component, or components, that help regulate the voltage on the 12V rail failed. So you were probably getting some rather large...

    PC3-10700 is the same thing as DDR3-1333. I know Wikipedia is often not the most reliable of sources, but when all someone has to do is copy and paste info from one website to another, it's pretty...

    Well, the important thing is that you found what the issue was. I'm honestly a little surprised the unit would boot and run at all with just a bit over half the voltage it was expecting. Anyway, it...

    The PSU is the most likely source of the problem, but it is at least conceivable the motherboard is the problem. Still I'd say it's like 90% chance it's the PSU, 9% chance it's the motherboard, and a...
