    Now I'm not saying that what follows is normal, just be aware that this did happen.

    Mate buys an Abit motherboard, 1800xp and a Volcano from Aria.

    Put it all together and turned it on. The fan stood still, he yanked the power as quick as possible but to late. Dead chip and MB

    Tested the fan on another board, it's dead.

    Aria are refusing to believe that this happened and are also refusing to replace any parts. They say he must have damaged the fan.

    Now he's having to take them to court.

    Who put it together? Aria or him?

    He put it together, I was there at the time, he did nothing wrong. The fan was jammed from the off. You could argue that he should have checked the fan but then it shouldn't have been faulty.

    I find it rather odd, the chip woudn't fry in seconds of the fan not working. Sounds more like a power overload

    Seen this two or three times, Life expectancy of an XP chip with no fan working 2-5 seconds. Why do you think a lot of boards wont boot up if you have no fan attached ?

    seen many people not have a fan on, usualy accidently, without frying the chip. There was that bloke who fried an egg on his chip! and it wasn't permantly damaged. I can't see the chips heats up to 80-90+ degreas in 2 seconds

    Dont be daft Bytesback..:D the chip wouldnt fry after afew seconds of switching on without a fan.

    The fan is attached to a heatsink.. the heat is disapated by heatsink, which would take 2-3mins to be at a temperature to cause damage (assuming there is no fan).

    Either the XP chip was dodgy, or there was a powerflux.. Seems to me Aria are acting normally.

    Well if Bytes Back is telling the truth then I am definatley getting it built by those f*****s so if anything goes wrong with it internally, I can blame them for it :D That definatley makes sense.

    No. I dont need a Monitor, Keyboard, speakers, Graphics card etc, only some parts which were shown in another post.

    Also if they put it together and something happens how can they blame me if they put it together?
