    The Top 5 Best CPUs of All Time

    "AMD Athlon 64 (2003) - The original Athlon often gets credit for being the first CPU to best Intel at anything and raced ahead of Intel to the 1GHz mark." How so? Pretty sure I bought my pair of 1GHz Pentium III Coppermines back in 2001, which launched in early 2000 (pretty sure even the 1.1...

    Holy crap, just got my $30!! :woot: Check was dated August 10th, so not sure if contacting KCC actually did anything or just a coincidence. Good luck everyone!

    OFFICIAL : GTX 970 SETTLEMENT check thread

    I'd bet money that he'll get a different canned response in another month or two from Bursor (though it'll likely be the same bullshit message with different timeframes and reworded). I've gotten 3 responses from them during June, July and August, and all three have been different (though the...

    OFFICIAL : GTX 970 SETTLEMENT check thread

    Sure thing! They likely won't contact you back, though. And yeah, for $90 you might wanna call back (or maybe ask someone here) and see exactly what type of documentation they want and what address to send it to and just send it all in again. Or maybe what you sent them in June still hasn't...

    OFFICIAL : GTX 970 SETTLEMENT check thread

    Yes, I'm pretty sure it's the same lady that I spoke with. Never asked for her to escalate the case, but after she said they'd be emailing me (at least had my email on file) I instantly gave up hope of ever hearing back from them. Would be pleasantly surprised if they did, but I'm doubtful...

    OFFICIAL : GTX 970 SETTLEMENT check thread

    I bought mine based on the price and advertised specs, and solely cuz there was an empty slot for a card in my build (and for playing around with video upscaling and decoding). Don't give a rats ass if it functionally effects how I use the card for whatever reasons, only that .5GB of the 4GB...

    OFFICIAL : GTX 970 SETTLEMENT check thread

    Yeah, I can kinda see how they'd wanna scrutinize someone claiming two dozen cards that weren't for resale.. was just making a point that I'm a cheap bastard wasting my time chasing $30 (though it's mostly out of principle). In any case, I really do hope everyone gets their checks, whether it's...

    OFFICIAL : GTX 970 SETTLEMENT check thread

    Not sure if this number was posted before, but if anyone still needs to check on the status of their claim, call (866) 627-2104 which is the KCC class-action claims assistance line (the other two numbers provided by Bursor in my post above won't do you any good) and they don't respond to emails...

    OFFICIAL : GTX 970 SETTLEMENT check thread

    Seems all 3 (Bursor, KCC & GTX970settlement) have stopped responding to emails.. fucking shady garbage POS lawyers. EDIT: Bursor finally responded (only one of those three to ever get reply) and basically rehashed info they gave me months ago, in addition to telling me to contact KCC for the...

    Wtf? Still no check, no rejection letter, no reply from the asshats at KCC now 20 days later.. nothing :bored:

    Emailed them earlier today with my claim number, after reading selflove's post. Haven't heard anything back yet.. has only been a few hours, but definitely not "minutes" for me. Then again, maybe they might've gotten a large influx of inquiries today from the dozen of us still following this...

    Still nothing at all here.. no settlement check, no notice of deficient claim form, nothing. Filed back in October 2016 after receiving the notice and iirc, the online form was auto-populated with all of my information after entering the claim number (970 was purchased from Newegg, so I'm...

    Corsair SF600 600w SFX Powersupply

    Just ordered the SF600 today (and an extra Corsair CP-8920116 short SATA cable and a Startech slimSATA adapter). Still not 100% sure how I'm going route both cables to my drives. Think somebody mentioned cutting off unused ends to make them shorter.. can anyone elaborate on doing that? Can...

    Corsair SF600 600w SFX Powersupply

    The US price is about $30 difference ($120 vs $90 at Amazon/Newegg), but I do agree the SF600 is still probably the better choice even at a higher differential (if the noise output is in fact similar below 450W). 100% agree. Unfortunately, that has never been the case with my current build...

    Corsair SF600 600w SFX Powersupply

    I posted this info earlier from the Kitguru review, comparing the noise of the SF450 and SF600.. SF450 @250W=31.4dB, @350W=32.2dB, @450W=33.3dB SF600 @300W=<28dB, @450W=33.8dB 300W on the SF600 is actually quieter than only 250W draw on the SF450, and the same at 450W...

    Corsair SF600 600w SFX Powersupply

    Lol, I have 3 sets myself. Short of Corsair cloning the Silverstone PP05-E set, I'm thinking you're right and that retrofitting a Silverstone set with Corsair connectors would be the most ideal solution for me. I've only ever depinned molex with a tool suited for just that.. would de/repinning...

    Corsair SF600 600w SFX Powersupply

    Good idea, thanks! Now are you talking about using a hairdryer at a safe distance, or just warming and bending them by hand? Dunno.. I just feel very spoiled by the quality, flexibility and connection options of my Silverstone PP05-E cable set (which were cheap, and included both 90° and 180°...

    Yeah, that particular cable has been available for a while.. but must've just been tested to work w/SF recently (wasn't an SF section last weekend when I looked, and don't think anyone here mentioned it). Don't remember reading about the partial compatibility w/type-3 before, thanks! Based on...

    Looks like Corsair just added the SF-series to their parts/accessories page.. Power Supply Parts and Accessories Right now, the only cable they're selling is the Type-3 SATA x4 (short, flat-ribbon). Could be wrong, but from other pics of that part #, it looks like it's probably the same SATA...

    Corsair SF600 600w SFX Powersupply

    Yeah, I mentioned that I could have been reading into things incorrectly, but this was what TH & Corsair said in the review about it.. "We expected quieter operation, similar to what we heard from the SF450. However, Corsair decided to tune its fan profile more aggressively, leading to...

    Corsair SF600 600w SFX Powersupply

    TH mentioned it being loud at full bore and louder "overall" ..so maybe it's just a case of the SF600 being quieter when drawing 400W and below, but louder from 400 to 600W or something similar (or perhaps Corsair is correct and their test unit was louder than production models, or maybe TH have...

    +100! Right now, the shitty stock SF600 Corsair cables are the only thing stopping me from buying this PSU. Out of all the Silverstone crap I've bought over the years, their PP05-E short cable set has been one of my best purchases. It has all of the possible connection combinations I could...

    Corsair SF600 600w SFX Powersupply

    Unless your cable mod is faulty and damages the PSU, I don't see how such a thing could void the warranty (though car companies successfully pull this crap all the time). Just call up Corsair and order an entire replacement cable set and mod those instead.. problem solved :whistle:

    Corsair SF600 600w SFX Powersupply

    Can't get my system to draw any higher than that (sub-350W incl. monitors) according to my UPS during stress testing. After reading the KitGuru review, I can't figure out if the 450W or 600W would be quieter, given that load. Seems nearly identical (with the SF600 being a little more quiet...

    Corsair SF600 600w SFX Powersupply

    Thanks Anak, I think if I plug that splitter onto the last SATA plug, and then plug a small SATA to slimSATA adapter to the end of one of those, it should give me the 4x SATA + 1x slimSATA I need on one cable run.

    Corsair SF600 600w SFX Powersupply

    Can't think of any suggestions (other than flipping the orientation of the drives, like you tried), but just wondering.. are the Corsair cables longer than usual, and there's just too much to cram into that spot - or is it the position of where the cables connect to the PSU that is interfering...
