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 Best solution siddharthmukul007 a b ) Power supply December 19, 2013 10:13:56 AM 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 Share 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 m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
