  2. how many amps on the 12V rail for my system? I have a little problem with my new GFX card. It is not running as fast as it should. This is my system thanks for the help.

    Specs
    AMD FX 6100
    GB Ram
    2 TB Hard Drive
    1Tb Hard Drive
    R9 280
    4 LED Fans
  3. You need to list the brand and make of your PSU
  4. 36Amps.
  5. RAIDMAX|RX-535AP 535W RT
  6. Running fast is not related to the PSU directly though. what is your motherboard model? How do you determine that your card is not running at its full speed?

    Throw that out as fast as possible, one of the worst PSU's it probably cant deliver 36Amps. Consider yourself lucky it hasn't fried any of your components yet. I had a RAIDMAX PSU once, I also had an expensive motherboard once, but the RAIDMAX PSU decided to kill it, and itself.
  8. Also would i use this to figure out how many watts go the 12 V rail

    Throw out that PSU!

    To calculate watts do 12 x 36 = 432, but that PSU wont deliver that 432 watts.
  10. My previous car is a GTX 660 and I upgraded my PSU and my GFx card My GFX card is now an R9 280 from MSI. In AOD I can see the graphics card stays at 1.25 V and GPU-Z says the same thing. So I figured it isnt getting all the power it need and it is sucking all the power it can because GPU-z Shows it at 100% Usage. Also the 280 s better that the 660 and i get worse frames.
  11. Sorry but your PSU is in tier 5 of the list which means it should not be used at all

    Better change your PSU and get one with 42Amps on +12V rail just in case with 550-600w PSU like Seasonic/XFX/Corsair/EVGA
  12. 1.25v is the GPU core, that's good. it doesn't run at 12v it steps down 12v to 1.25,

    Still throw out that PSU and buy an XFX or Seasonic or Corsair.
  13. would a 600W be good?
  14. Yes it should. which model? You have not answered my questions in my first post
  15. I plan on getting a corsair i like them. My MOBO is a BIOSTAR A880Gz
  16. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139028&cm_re=power_supply-_-17-139-028-_-Product
    Will that be enough for my CPU and GPU and everything else in my system?
  17. Oki then get Corsair CX600M power supply. It is good one. Don't buy other CX or CS/VS series PSU from Corsair. I would recommend
