Solved Power Supply Problem - XFX 280X Tags: XFX Power Supplies GPUs 280X Graphics Last response: December 19, 2013 10:16 AM in Graphics & Displays Share NojjH December 19, 2013 10:05:18 AM I'm looking at buying the XFX 280X GPU, however on my power supply I have 2 30A 12v rails. I read that the GPU itself requires 42A, would it be okay if it was connected on the 2 rails separately, if that makes any sense? Thanks. My current specs are: CPU: AMD A8-6600K w/ Radeon 8570D graphics PSU: Storm Silent 700w RAM: 8GB Corsair Vengeance MoBo: Gigabyte F288X-D3H More about : power supply problem xfx 280x Reply to NojjH Best solution siddharthmukul007 a b ) Power supply December 19, 2013 10:13:56 AM Share having 2 separate 12v rails makes life a bit more complicated. you have to distribute the load evenly between both the rails for the best performance. if i were you i would have bought a psu with a single powerful 12v rail. no harm done anyways, just go thru the user guide and follow the instructions carefully about load distribution Reply to siddharthmukul007 NojjH December 19, 2013 10:16:41 AM siddharthmukul007 said:having 2 separate 12v rails makes life a bit more complicated. you have to distribute the load evenly between both the rails for the best performance. if i were you i would have bought a psu with a single powerful 12v rail. no harm done anyways, just go thru the user guide and follow the instructions carefully about load distribution Okay, thanks mate, I'll have a look at it now Reply to NojjH Ask the community Post an answer Related resources SolvedCan my Power Supply run this XFX Radeon 280x Forum Solvedpower needed for xfx r9 280x Forum SolvedPower Requirements XFX R9 280x - A Little Confused Forum SolvedWhy is XFX R9 280X power requirement different from other manufacturer (Asus, Gigabyte, MSI etc.)?
