I agree and disagree with you, swaaye. This machine definately has it's little quirks, but I think if you look at any machine as intimately as we do here you'd see problems. Although Arima chassis seem to have more than their fair share sometimes
I still haven't figured out what to do about the screen flicker. I've had it twice since post #21. Maybe...maybe if I tried wrapping electrical tape around each wire, then shoving it back into place and putting a piece of tape across those to hold them in place, then reassembling it. I hadn't tried messing with the left wire, maybe that's the cause of this whole problem. If I were Arima, I would create a curved tube, like half a donut, out of plastic and run the wire through there so that it's properly insulated and protected from other pieces of equipment. I'd also make the wires a bit longer to give them a bit more slack -- I'm wondering if the wires are just short enough so that they are loose most of the time but stretched out a tad when moved to certain positions, resulting in a partial connect to the screen or motherboard.
