Windows 7: PC Freezes then HDD makes clicking sounds.

Yeah, I perfectly understand your point. I will indeed shop for a new PSU + I plan on building a new pc maybe next year. I was thinking of a Haswell system. This way, I could choose my PSU accordingly.

I don't want to spend too much on a PSU though. The CAN$ is sh*t atm. I'm not sure if I want to pay $160 for a PSU. What about this one? It supports Haswell CPUs as far as I know.

Keep in mind that different 'lines' from the same manufacturer may carry different warranties. For EVGA models you can refer to EVGA Power Supplies Warranty Terms.

Hmmm... According to Newegg, I have a 3 year warranty and according to EVGA Warranty Terms, the models with the -VR prefixes have a 5 year warranty. Since Newegg is an authorized reseller, does that mean I can benefit from the 5 year warranty?

Newegg.com shows 5yr, I guess you're looking at newegg.ca? Since the page I linked specifically indicates the warranty details apply to Canada, it's probably just a newegg mistake. But I'd contact EVGA to be sure.

Yeah, I was looking at newegg.ca. I will contact EVGA. Also, do I really need a 750W PSU? My GPU only need 500W so I would probaly be all right with a 650W PSU. What do you think?

Oh well... Nevermind. The 650W EVGA PSUs they have on newegg.ca are more expensive than the 750W 110-B1-0750-VR. There is a refurbished one, but I prefer a brand new PSU.

I'm pretty sure there are different policies between US and Canada. If you buy from the US, you get a 5 year warranty, but if you buy from Canada, it's 3 years.

I'd be willing to bet you can take that at face value. That said, "trust but verify".

They said I can get an extended warranty if I register using my invoice. It will indeed be a 5 year warranty. That's the actual message:


Hello,

This specific power supply model as well as all other power supplies have a standard transferable 3yr warranty. If you are the original owner and register it along with a valid invoice then you would receive an extended warranty depending on the model. This one particularly receives a 5yr warranty if registered to the original owner. If you have any concerns or further questions you may contact our Support Team at 888-881-3842 who are available 24/7.

Regards,
EVGA

Is it safe using WDIDLE3 on my WDEZRX HDD? Now that I know that the noise is related to a load cycle issue, is it really worth fixing? According to this post, I could use WDIDLE3 to modify the load cycle. If I don't fix it, what are the consequences? There must be a reason why WD programmed them that way.
