    Sorry to hear it. You don't have a fan (room fan) you can angle strategically? Or not have it against cloth/wall?

    Already tried that. Aimed 2 fans actually and just got the issue right now, with it being a lot cooler (as cool as it was the other couple of days it has worked) =[

    Hopefully I won't have issues returning it. Still deciding if going to get a refund or ask for a new one. =/

    I'm so confused right now... it happened a bunch of times and randomly, but after I unplugged everything (which I had already done), replugged (although the DVI conector this second time let 1 screw fall), smacked the dvi conector a bit, it has been working flawlessly for a couple of hours.
    No idea what is going on, if it was overheating, or the dvi conector was loose (then why would it work if I simply restarted the computer?), guess I should just change it anyway.
    Also, I obviously tried 2 different DVI-D cables and it kept happening. The monitor was alright for 2 days, then this happened today, with all those caveats. Anyone have any idea what could be going on here?

    Figured I would just ask here, but I'm looking at getting a new desk and I want to get a L-Shaped desk so I can have a one side for my computer setup etc. and the other for when I fix old machines or I'm modding some old game systems or 360s. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.

    I have been using the monitor this whole morning (around 4 ~ 5 hours usage now) and it's as hot as yesterday, but the issue hasn't happened yet. I'm so confused cause I really can't think of a reason for it to have happened yesterday, but not the other 3 days I have been using it, and so far today it hasn't happened.

    No... no...

    You guys know what we've always needed? Kingston HyperX Silver 10th Anniversary RAM-DIMMs!!!

    I honestly might try and get some, if they make 8GB ones, which I bet they will, since those are becoming pretty common.

    Can anyone of you find any information about the PSU DELTA Electronics, CAA-500AT A , S/N: CZMD1128004653, specifically if it's 80 Plus?

    A person on another forum has the problem that her computer has completely died, after one year, it's absolutely dead and doesn't react at all. Also, during the whole year, it malfunctioned, having many problems that are typical of a PSU that is too weak, such as restarts during load. The thing is, it's a prebuilt (from the company Webhallen, for those of you interested) and it uses the PSU that I want information about, but can't find any.

    It's a 500W PSU and the computer is hardly demanding, having an i7 2600 (not k), a 560 ti and nothing else that draws a lot of power. It is not overclocked. So the PSU should handle it, but it just seems like a cheap piece of crap. Am I wrong in thinking that a cheap 500W that isn't 80 Plus can't be expected to be able to handle specs even such as the ones in this computer?

    I don't know why she hasn't spoken to Webhallen earlier, seeing as the computer has had problems since she bought it, but she's going to Webhallen tomorrow to talk to them and probably have the employees take a look at the computer. I have given her two fair points to bring up, when asking for her money back (if possible, after a year), a new psu or some other kind of compensation.

    1. If Webhallen themselves can't find any information about the psu, or at least can't prove it's 80 Plus, then it's highly irresponsible to both sell products that they don't know much about, and to use such components in a prebuilt without using a psu with enough power to guarantee a working computer even if the psu can only chime out, say, 60%. The people who built the computer must've known that it might not be enough and yet they either didn't say anything, or noone listened to them.

    2. If Webhallen can confirm that it is 80 Plus or, at least, that it really should deliver enough power 100% of the time, then it's probably defect. Either that or the motherboard most likely is.

    Anyhow. As I said, can anyone find any information about that PSU? And does anyone of you have anything else to say about this?

    It's not 80+
    A good 500w PSU would handle that, 80+ or not. This is either a defect PSU, or not a very good PSU-brand.

    80+ is just how much efficiency it has, not quality of the unit, so an 80+ unit, can be utter crap (Corsair HX1000), just as a non-80+ can be a good one.
    If it's a 500w PSU rated for 500w, it should be able to deliver 500w on the internal DC side, and if it's 80% efficient at 100% load, it would pull 625w from the AC-side, ie, the wall.

    I doubt it's rated for anything else but peak 500w.

    Question is... is it too late for them to get out of the hole they've been in the past year or two?

    At least their stocks are back up above $2.50...
