Should switching from a dvd burner to a blu-ray burner boost my voltage enough to worry about my power supply? Tags: Power Supplies DVD Burner Burner Systems Blu-ray Boost Last response: June 15, 2014 4:47 PM in Systems Share Inquisitive Builder June 15, 2014 4:31:57 PM Title says it all. I already bought one assuming it would be fine, but am having some last-minute hesitations before I install. Here's my current rig in case it matters Motherboard ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 AM3+ CPU AMD FX-8120 (supposed to be safe all the way up to 70c) RAM Kingston HyperX Blu 4GB (DDR3 1333 MHz) Video Card EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti (2GB) Hard Drive Western Digital Blue 1TB (7200 RPM, 64MB Cache) Optical Drive Lite-On Internal DVD Writer Case Cooler Master Elite 430 Mid Tower Power Supply Corsair Enthusiast Series 650-Watt Operating System Software Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium CPU Cooler Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO Thermal Grease Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound Monitor ASUS VN248H-P Super Narrow Bezel Black 23.8" Thoughts?

When burning a BluRay disc it uses maybe 30 Watts, but then you wouldn't likely be stressing the computer very hard when doing that (i.e not playing a game).
