    Default CX500 no power good

    I have a CX500 powered machine in the house, and it's now only firing up about 1 time in 20 or so. I poked my DMM across all the rails, and in typical Corsair fashion, all the voltages are within a gnat's crotchet of bang on, but the power good line is only coming up to 0.6 volts.
    I've tried it on a few machines, and it does the same in all of them.

    I'm not buying EK GPU blocks ever again. (One GPU killed)

    Last time I looked at RMA to Corsair, postage of the TX back to Holland cost about 70% of the price of a new unit.

    Last time you looked was a while ago, then. They're doing RMAs in the UK now. You don't have to ship it to The Netherlands anymore (unless you're in the Nordics already, of course).

    Awesome! Thanks for the info!
    Guess I won't rip it to bits and poke at it with a soldering iron then.
