    It's not unheard of for the cores of Intel Core 2 Quad processors to be vastly different temperatures in pairs. This is primarily because Core 2 Quads aren't "native" quad-core CPUs - they're two different physical processors jammed together under one heatspreader. Ideally they'd give equal temperatures, but occasionally one die will be of poorer quality than the other and give off far more heat. End result: Cores 1 and 2 are 5-10C lower than Cores 3 and 4, or visa versa.

    Don't know about your PSU/GPU, though.

    it would help to know the beeps mate. are they in a pattern or is it constant. When I installed a brand new 8800 GTX it beeped. I could POST and browse but anything that became even slightly graphics intensive would shut me down. Card was naffed and new one worked a treat. Also worth bearing in mind that video POST beeps are normally one long 3 short (well that's what google told me) but sometimes it changed in my case. All rosy with new card in though.

    No that is the wrong state i'm on this :



    Light : Red Light

    PSU Status : On

    Buzzer: Tow Beeps Interval

    Information:

    1. PG ( Power Good ) signal abnormal
    2. System loading lower than Psu minimum output load requirement ** ( which is impossible )

    Take it all out the case and try? Maybe it's shorting.

    Why is that a bs? He's saying that unless you've changed something else in there the PSU is at fault, and you should send it back to your supplier for RMA.

    What were you expecting? "We'll send an engineer out immediately" ? :eyebrow:

    Just send it in for replacement, see if it helps.

    you kidding me ?

    Buddy Did you notice i live in Dubai ? In other words UAE ?

    We don't have any one sell enermax things any more... I bought mine from a shop that had 5 that the owner brought from USA or UK not sure and he was selling them here for alot..... that shop closed from 1 year ...

    So now you know why this is BS ? I can't RMA my PSU

    In all fairness, that is your problem mate...

    Besides the overly correct helpdesk-speak, the content of the mail seems fine. They need to get their hands on the unit to do any research no matter what.

    If you cannot return the unit, try finding somebody who knows his electronics, and fix the thing yourself. If you dont plan on using warranty, there's no loss in voiding it, right? ;)

    I'd start by looking at the 8-pin cable itself. One tip: Try to find one of those 2x molex to 8-pin PCIe converters, or fabricate your ow in a worst-case scenario.

    So it's Enermax's fault you bought a PSU you're not prepared to RMA? Surely there's a retailer close to you who stocks Enermax stuff? They might be able to help you.

    Send an email back to Enermax too, they might help you.
