Yea well for now I'm pretty dead set on returning the thing. Assuming that all works, two questions:
1: Case wise I have a thermaltake armor mx, current PSU is an Antec earthwatt 500W.
I plan to buy THIS PSU, are they all pretty standardized? and will there be any foreseeable issues installing this?http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=17-207-017&SortField=0&SummaryType=0&Pagesize=10&PurchaseMark=&SelectedRating=2&VideoOnlyMark=False&VendorMark=&IsFeedbackTab=true&Keywords=%28keywords%29#scrollFullInfo
2:Otherwise, my PC is a stock HP pavillion elite M9100z, excluding an upgraded graphics card and ram. Again, ANY possible figurative landmines I might step on putting this SOB in?
thank you all for the help.
