so let me get this straight, she used cables from cable mod that are designed to be used with corsair power supplies but then persisted to use them with 3 silverstone PSU's. Hence tripping them due to those cables being wired for corsair, then persists to blame Silverstone!!!???
Aye, good news is that shes open to learning and responds to comments, however a follow up video should be done clarifying the mistakes made.
Shes lucky the silverstones have such a senstive overcurrent protection.
Spending so much money to mess up so badly.
Thank you very much for the video @Astyanax . This was a good start into the day.
You got more of those videos?
Also I don't quite understand how updating the BIOS was supposed to make the water pump work...
Well, theres always Austin with the wrongly made display port cable. (pin 20 wired)
look at min 4: 23 how she lays rough hands on the gpu !
and i thought girls would be sensitive to whatever they have in their hands !
cute: just a mild overclock to my ram to 4600mhz-why its not running?
maybe she´s trolling us all for views
she was really underpowered with a 9980xe and titan rtx for games like what pubg - i am laughing even more now.
Now, my mind was foggy before my daily dose of caffeine and didn't quite get the wrong doing, I was staring at the pinouts and wondered if that's what went wrong.
Now, I see what is all about.
I've been out of the tech scene for a couple of years but this video instantly raised my bloodpressure, she went on to blame silverstone and heavily emphasized "ITS NOT THE CABLES".
How does a direct short relate to the sensitivity of the over-current protection? Hint, it does not. Hopefully you're as open to learning as you claim she is.
Welcome back HeavyHemi.
a less sensitive OCP trigger could have taken longer to react leaving the metal casing electrified or components more time to build up heat and take damage through fusing of metal gates.
Go and stick a fork in a power point and you tell me how the short circuit relates to the OCP mechanism your resettable circuit breaker employs.
Now this is a perfect example of a GIF you can hear (inside your head).
Not sure how you can have enough knowledge to buy parts and build a PC like that, but not know not to mix different brand PSUs & cables.... surely that comes fairly early on in the learning process
To be honest as far as I know there isn't a practical reason why PSU makers couldn't follow the same / standardized pinouts.
The connectors are the same after all and device side must have equal pinout anyway.
Using different ones creates unnecessary confusion imo and indeed causes the risk of the mistake demonstrated here.
but then they can't charge you for oem replacements.
Yeah, once again it's money dictating less-than-optimal solutions, I know.
If nothing else, if the cables have different wiring, connectors should be made in a way that prevents mistakes. I think it has been technical practice since the dawn of time, except for modular desktop PSUs ofc.
