oops wrong section plz move to chassis section
Hello i got this great case at 2009 and its the best case i bought .
but a while ago i upgraded my gpu and i had this incidence :
in my opinion this is a factory defect from the perfect sumo 5115 chase
there was no reason what so ever that they were lazy enough not to
put screws on those metal covers , i looked in a site and the guy was smart
enough to remove them and switch to tips on the terminals like i did now
as the main metal lock will only close down on the covers if there is no cards installed .
am saying this because it almost cost me the lose of my dear 6870 card
man i love this card with some oc to my cpu it seems impossible for any game out there to laid my system back . but that metal bar fell on the top of power color 6870 card and it caused a short circuit damaged the upper DVI connector . it is my good luck that the 6870 has x2 DVI connectors
for dual monitors .. so i switched to the lower connector and went back to normal but this will surly effect me when i sell this card because
i must say to the buyer that the upper DVI link is damaged . and i cant go back on AMD warranty because its Gigabyte fault
plus i think it would have been a real terror for the new amd cards buyers
as the new amd cards are costing more than 450$ and those cards
have only one dual DVI connector , and it would be the end of that card .
TBH i know that is in an industry like this its not logical to keep up with every detail and i know i have no legal rights against Giga
but i just want you guys to know that if i did have a legal right i would definitely demand a new gigabyte 6870 card .
have a nice day .
