Morning.  Banging this message out on my smartphone.  17 day old ABS (Newegg’s in house builder) refused to boot this morning.  It was a great computer while it lasted.  Intel 10700F CPU, EVGA water cooling, power supply and 3070 FTW3 video card on an Asus motherboard.  
 

This morning, the RGB indicator shows power, but a press of the on button yields a split second of power to all the components, then nothing else.  Tried reseting the computer, PSU, and UPS, but to no avail.  
 

Newegg wanted a review, they got one as in one egg.  I spent two weeks installing my suite of programs that allow me to customize FSX (Steam Edition this time).  I think I am done with flight sims and computers in general.  
 

y’all have a good day, I have a computer to pack up.

Wait... what?

 

I am going to swap out PSU's, hoping it is not the motherboard.

 

What is all this peach, joy, one with body stuff I have been posting?  NWO new member?  What have I been doing for the past weeks?

Ha, truth is stranger than fiction. Luckily Landru only lasted 17 days this time...

Yeah... what the...  I feel weird, like I have no direction in my life.  Oh, wait, that's actually normal for me! :rofl:

 

 

So I removed the EVGA 750 watt GR Series PSU that came with this Newegg computer and crammed in the older, but known to work well during the last 3 months of my old computer's life, Antec PSU, which is only 900 watts and I was thinking it was 1000, but still gross overkill for this system.  Put everything back together, no left over fasteners, plugging everything in and pressed the power button.


It.... is..... alive!

Noticed a light gray residue on the EVGA PSU at one of the VGA sockets that was in use.  Maybe this 750 Watt PSU was not actually up to the task of powering an EVGA RTX 3070 video card. <_<

Which one of you morons thought it was a good idea to control the dentist with a new computer?

I vote for Fink.   Dork Helmet probably had a role to play as well.
