Is there a way to know if your psu is stressing out in your system?
Could something like this work?
Well, your pushing it on the 12V rail side with Amps. The minimum is a 500W with 36/38 amps on the 12V rail. Yours only has 35 amps total on the 12V rail.
well the psu I have says 38amps on the sticker. Is that pushing it still?
It has a 18 and 20 amp max rails but that doesnt mean it has a total of 38 amps. Thats just the max any one rail can pull before shutting down the supply. It has 420W total on the 12V rail which comes in around 35 amps total.
Can you tell me if this one would do it?
or if you have a better choice for less than 70 shipped.
or for $73.99 free shipping...
Smoke is usually a pretty good indicator.
Hey guys i ended up buying a Corsair TX750.
Good choice, excellent psu that should give you plenty of power for awhile
thanks. that is definitely good to know. One of the best things besides the power of this psu is that is very quiet which is a plus.
Hey I have the Corsair TX750, it is really good no complaints.
What are you using it with? (pc setup)
