Okay, so I made a mistake. I really wanted one of the basic CAV-T03 cases as my computing tastes run fairly minimalist and Coolermaster is one of the few companies with a decent case with nice lines and none of the extra lights/windows/whatever. Looking around I couldn't find a T03 in stock w/o PSU so I bought with the PSU included. Upon getting my case and installing the mobo I found out that the 5v rail on my psu appears to be bad. With nothing but mobo, memory, and cpu installed I can turn on the system and sometimes just about get into bios -> hardware mon just in time to see the 5v rail go to 4.8 then 4.5 then the system powers off.
So my quandry is this. To get a refund I have to send the entire case w/ PSU back to zipzoomfly, wait 1-2 weeks for my money, the order something else, then wait some more. Or I can eat the $40 that the RS-350-AMSR is worth and buy a new PSU (dare I risk it a second time with CM and get the 450 everyone is talking about).
I'm not even sure if CM has a repair/RMA service available for just the PSU or not (I couldn't seem to find hard evidence one way or the other). What I'd really like to do is trade up to the 450 and pay the difference in the retail prices but that's _quite_ unlikely (customer service used to work like that but hasn't in years). Anywho, any suggestions?
