Had an interesting job the other day requiring the use of a saw on a desktop PC’s case!
A customer in Brincliffe / Nether Edge rang and asked for a callout to fix a desktop PC not powering up. He suspected a power supply issue, which was correct when a burnt out ATX 4-pin 12v connector was found. Connecting a new PSU let the system power just fine and the job was to be completed in quick time. However, while the new PSU fitted into the case fine, the socket on the back of the PSU for the power cable from the mains socket was slightly obscured by the PC’s case…made of thick metal! Some DIY sawing was required! This shouldn’t have been an issue because computer components and cases should be made to certain specifications/dimensions, otherwise there would be even more compatibility issues than there currently are! … But apparently not in this case.
