  1. A dozen or more years ago, a device in my bedroom connected to my home network, the lights on the Ethernet port would be visible. Not really disturbing but the sort of thing that would catch your eye during sleepless night. I was all set to take it apart and unsolder the lights. Then it hit me. Tape. Now I look at the moon and the shadows from tree branches....::pirate::
  2. Tape. A little strip of black electrical tape and the light is no longer visible.
  3. I'd connect it to a UPS. In my home, my desktop runs through one, all TV's, the satellite box and a few other devices that are power sensitive. That makes for seven UPS in my home.
  4. Yup, that is a cap and it is extremely doubtful it was caused by the PSU. Most of the time when they fail, it is because of poor assembly of the board or being undersized/cheap part.
  5. Your 5V is rock steady, your 12V drops by barely .2V, about 2.5%. Reasonable for maximum loading.
  6. Weak battery in the UPS? I have a 1500W UPS in my electronics closet. The laser printer is in there and it draws close to 2000W peak when printing. The UPS supplies it (though it beeps). Typically, when a UPS fails to supply a load, it is because the batteries are failing. Have you load tested the UPS for output and project 'on battery' runtime?
  7. A common cause for AFCI breakers to trip is RFI, solved by running the power cable through a a ferrite (a couple of loops is best.) All electronic circuits create/emit a level of RFI that is being back fed to the panel and your breaker reading it as an arc. Once your PSU is fully 'charged' the emitted RFI diminishes and you are OK. I doubt this a Corsair only issue as many in the radio biz report the same problem.
  8. Is your cooler showing in device manager? Plugged in to the USB 2 header on your MoBo?
  9. If both machines are identical, you should be able to swap hard drives. See if the problem follows the hard drives or is hardware specific. I bet it is a hard drive/software issue.
  10. Thanks. I did not see the 'load more' You'd think the most recent would be the top of the list, right? I appreciate dc8flyer providing another source but I am more comfortable getting it from the source rather a third party.
  11. When will this be on the site for D/L? Can you provide a link to it? I prefer to retain a copy of all installed SW in case I want to reinstall.
  12. I too, have sucked up my USB 2.0 internals with Corsair stuff.::pirate:: I find it hard to believe no company makes a USB 2.0 internal port PCIe card. What if someone damages the port on the MB?:eek: You can still buy PCIe cards that support floppies!:bigeyes:
  13. Here is another starcom, with a dual 2.0 https://www.startech.com/Cards-Adapters/USB-2/Card/7-Port-PCI-USB-Card-Adapter~PCIUSB7 Opps, just noticed it is PCI, not PCIe
  14. LOL, I know you are sincere Like these??? https://www.amazon.com/Port-Express-Profile-High-Speed/dp/B002RL8V7E https://www.startech.com/support/PEX400USB2 I'll never understand why CL will only connect over true 2.0 even though 3.0, 3.1 ports are 'backward compatible'. I also have found my Logitech keyboard and mouse setpoint are particular about what rear USB port I use. You'd think with the demand withg so much hardware that still has to use 2.0, that a card would be easy enough to find. I have to have a modem in my macine, it was hard and stupid expensive to get one. Dinosaurs.
  15. Did you consider adding a PCI card with internal 2.0 ports?
