Default This post on LTT made me lose my shit....

https://linustechtips.com/main/topic...on-the-market/

This part: " I called EVGA and told them about (my P2 1000W dying). The man I talked to said that they failed bacause I bought a grossly oversized PSU. He said something like their 450 watt Bronze unit would have been more appropriate for my system because it only draws 350 watts under load."

What... the... actual.... FUCK?!?!

You guys at Corsair could make some good advertising material out of this. Call EVGA up for a similar issue, hear totally incorrect response, boom it's on Youtube. :P

Co-worker told me to call up EVGA and say "you're fired."

"Sorry... Do you even work here?"

"Doesn't matter.. You're fired."

In Spain they would say "no, that's because your computer draws 1.2 gigawatts power so you need a 5GW power supply unit"

We should start rating power supplies in horsepower. Because why not?
