Why would it explode?
Why is it that he can hit a 3rd baseman on a frozen rope from 300 feet away, but he can't hit a 12 foot tall catcher from 60 feet 6 inches away?

Lol. Kingwin is one of the best power supply companies in my opinion. I rarely, if ever, will buy anything but a Seasonic or a Kingwin. Few power supplies anywhere near the normal price range ($50-60) can touch the 12V rail output of 46A.

Yeah. Microcenter was out of new-in-box 970A-G43s, but they're not supposed to combine open box discounts with mobo discounts. The cashier had no problem getting a manager to give me an additional $40 off the open box savings when I asked.
