Evga rma fail


#1

I have EVGA supernova 650watt Plat Psu that only sends 10v on 12v rail.

While removing said PSU For RMA I put a minor scratch on the PSU. Sent the Unit in and EVGA is denying me RMA due to minor cosmetic blemish. They are sending be back the broken unit, I am just trying to figure out what to do with it…

I already purchased a new PSU for my main rig.(not evga ever again)

I have thought of trying to fix scratch and sending it back again. Not sure if that would work or be a waste of shipping…

SO I was wondering if I would be able to use the PSU perhaps on a lower power using platform.

It was ruining a 1800x and r9 280 but kept crashing that rig while gaming and high power situation.

Does anyone think it would be safe to put with a 1090t and a old hd 6700 gpu? At least the Gpu will not be pulling as many watts.

I was only getting crashes with the bad PSU during gaming situations.

Or does anyone know how to fix PSU :slight_smile:

Thx for thoughts and comments.

No, unless you find some odd platform that uses 10v instead of 12v

In theory yes.
In practice, I need the service manual including the circuit diagramm.
