Oooh, sorry you're having all that trouble.

This is starting to get annoying.
Their customer services is great. You could accept the delivery and call customer service. Explain the situation and they'll let you exchange it. If you ask really nicely, they might waive the restocking fee.

I have dealt exclusively with Newegg for most of my builds. Never had a problem.

OK everything is fixed and all the right parts are on the way.

Ohsnapword I called them and all that I need to do is receive all the parts and they are going to give me a rma on the wrong psu and a full refund. All I had to so was order the correct psu separately and send the wrong one back. They made no mention of a restocking fee.

They won't charge you a re-stocking fee for an unopened new item. Like OhSnap says, the Egg is a great company to work with. I must have bought about $15,000 worth of parts in just the last 10 years, and never a problem.

That's partly the reason I chose them. I've not heard one bad thing yet about their c/s and they have the cheapest prices comparable to any body else so why not do all my shopping at one place.

True, and I've also found Amazon excellent to deal with. I guess you'll have your parts either Fri, or Monday, depending on where you live.

I have a friend who lives in St. Louis, Mo. When ever he orders from the Egg, he'll generally get delivery the next day, two days at the most, because he lives close to one of their distribution centers.

I'm hoping against fate that I'll have the parts by Friday but I highly doubt it. So next week on my days off I'll be building. My main concern right now is when I get started putting it together, I'll put a wire in the wrong spot and in the motherboard. I've been looking up vids on YouTube on how to do the wiring, but I'm still really hesitant about this. I don't think the whole "fake it till you make it" rule applies to a $1300 piece of equipment :-)

---------- Post added at 04:11 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:08 PM ----------

Also half the parts are shipping from Tennessee, the other half from New Jersey. So yeah I'll bank on them all being here next week just to give a little wiggle room.

If you follow the instructions that came with the motherboard, you should be fine.

Generally it is difficult to plug something into the wrong spot. The plugs should plug in with little to no effort. If you encounter a lot of resistance, double check that you are plugging the wire into the right place and the right way.

That's correct, all the mobo connectors are key coded, you'd really have to work at plugging a connector in incorrectly.
