Default FS: 850W PSU and Coolermaster Keyboard

Hello, humanoids. I have two items up for sale today, a power supply and a keyboard. Both were review samples, and I need to get rid of them so I can get some bills paid.

Willing to ship these anywhere US or Canada, APO included, by USPS/Canada Post. Items are located in Canada. Shipping costs are included in my price.

Paypal only outside Canada, please. No gift payments. Contact me if you're in Canada and dislike Paypal... I can do other forms of payment north of the border.

My flawless heatware track record is found here.

First item up for grabs is my Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 850W. You might remember this unit from such reviews as this week's. Note that on this unit, the PCI-E and CPU modular cables can be plugged in incorrectly. Just follow the color coding and you'll be fine.

Naturally, it did come apart for the review. Because of the way these units are built, I had to razor the red stripe sticker in four places so I could get the lid off. As such, it's not cosmetically perfect anymore. The stripe is now peeling off in places because the factory glue sucks, but since I don't have glue to fix this I've opted to leave it as is and let you do as you wish with it. Peel it off, glue it back down, it's all the same to me and the unit's innards are not going to care. The stripe still looks good, as my cuts were very precise, it's just peeling off in places now (see picture).

As usual, I put all of my 26 years in electronics into examining the innards while I had it apart. There was some unbelievably bad soldering on the modular board - I fixed that. I also touched up a number of joints on the mainboard. I then load tested the unit again at high power for 30 minutes to insure it works for the long haul... no problems there.

I will personally guarantee this unit for 90 days. You will not need to take me up on that... I'm better at electronics than the guy at the factory who missed those absurd soldering issues. I haven't had one die on me in years, and I only run units I've had apart so I can personally make sure I'm running something decent.

Comes with full retail packaging. I have no extra 16 gauge power cords, or I'd swap out the weenie little one in the box. That said, 18 gauge should be ok for this unit. If it were 1kW, I'd have to ship it without a power cord.

Price: $80 USD shipped.

Next up, my Coolermaster Novatouch TKL. This is the one with the specially modded Topre switches that take Cherry MX keycaps.

I've been using this keyboard sporadically for only a month, so it's as close to new as you can get without actually buying new. It is flawless, though might be a little dusty.

This thing is a dream to type on, but if I want any kind of a Christmas this year it has to go. That said, due to being Topre based, in flawless working order, and in wonderful cosmetic condition, I need to get as much as I can for it.

Comes with full retail packaging.
