    Well, he wasn't prepared to wait until the end of this decade, Ice. On a side note, it appears I have to, however. Oh well. Someday I'll have the money to upgrade (though by the time I do it'll prolly be just as wise to buy a whole new machine).

    GameVe

    Well Hell Folks!! Bad Site Warning!!

    I decided to upgrade my Fragbox and figured I would save some money and not order from NewEgg. I ordered the following from GameVe on 7/3/04.

    MB-ASUS-018 1 ASUS A8V DELUXE K8T800PRO Wi- Fi MOTHERBOARD RETAIL $145.00

    MMN-COR-078 1 CORSAIR 1GB (2X512MB) PC3200 XL KIT SERIES MEMORY RETAIL $340.00

    HD-WD-020 2 WESTERN DIGITAL 120GB SATA HARD DRIVE OEM $196.00

    CPU-AMD64-0004 1 AMD ATHLON 64 3500+ 939PIN OEM $485.00

    ACC-SUN-0046 1 BLUE LED ACRYLIC CASE FEET RETAIL $16.99

    I received the order today 7/9/04, I didn't order overnite so time wise was OK. The problem arose when I opened the box and reviewed my order.
    1- The RAM has B.O. wrote on it. (Website Clearly Shows In Stock)
    2- The LED Case Feet turned into a 80mm CREAIR Fan!! (Very Cheap Looking Fan) Its not even listed on the WebSite..
    :confused:

    Thats only the beginning.. I dialed their 1-800 and got the Phone Answering Run Around for like 30 minutes. Dial 0 for operator, Sorry busy leave a message, Dial 1 for Extensions or dial your parties extension. I tried 10 names and numbers, nobody answered all voice mail.
    I hung up waited a bit and tried again and finally someone picked up the damn phone. I explained to him my situation, and he put me on hold to check on the RAM. Its on Back Order.. I know you freaking Idiot, Why is it on B.O. when your Site states its in Stock and usually ships in 2-3 days??? He couldn't figure that out. I then told him about not receiving the Case Feet and receiving a Fan I didn't order. He told me I had to RMA the FAN!:eek: ***, a 3 dollar fan that I didn't order has to be RMA back to them?? He kept saying I am just trying to help doing my job etc. It still doesn't make sense. How can you RMA something you didn't order?? We will put a shipping label in the box when we send your RAM and CaseFeet. When will that be? Not sure next week sometime.. Talk about some BAD Real BAD Customer Service.. That has to be one of the worst sites to order from , I will not be ordering anything ever again from GameVe just to save a few bucks. Yea the prices where cheaper on a few items but its not worth the grief.. Hell hopefully the Mobo works hate to have to RMA it..

    well sometimes you have to dust it out because those fans won't work proprely and will heat your puter. I do mine evry now and then.

    I've got a noob question for you.

    Where do the fans plug into directly? And do I have to wait til my puter comes to know if I will need 3 or 4 pin connectors? I have a feeling ima need some extra wiring when I put a fan in the front of the case.

    And If I'm gonna buy some sleeving for the fan wires, will 1/4" sleeving be big enough?

    What you want is a Fan Controller.. Then you can buy 3 Pin Fans. Most fans come as 3 Pin except the real powerful ones like Delta's and Tornado's. CompUSA had some but I don't see them online. PCToys but these from FrozenCPU are what they look like.

    That way you plug your fans into the back of the controllwer and can turn down the noise when needed.

    If not Motherboards come with 3-4 3 pin connectors for fans. If you need to use a Molex connector then you can always by a special connector..

    I'm guessing one of those controllers take the place of a 5.25" Drive Bay huh.
