Hello all. I'm planning to build a SLI gamming rig using the K8N Neo4
Platinum/SLI motherboard and I'm concerned about what PSU (power supply
Unit) to use. Instead of paying $175 for something like the Silverstone
ST65ZF 650W or the Enermax EG701AX Noisetaker 600W Nvidia certified PSU. I
found the Enermax EG565P-VE FMA 535W SLI PSU for $89 on ebay which is not
certified by Nvidia but is configured for SLI . Here are the specs.


Specifications:
a.. Model: EG565P-VE FMA 2.0
b.. Maximum Power: 535W (support both 24pins and 20pins motherboards)
c.. Voltage Rails:
a.. +12V: 34A
a.. +12V1: 18A
b.. +12V2: 18A
b.. -12V: 0.8A
c.. +5V: 32A
d.. +5VSB: 2.5A
e.. +3.3V: 32A
d.. Input Voltage: 90V~135V or 90V~265V
e.. Input Frequency Range: 47Hz~63Hz
f.. Input Current: 40A/115V and 80A/230V max. during cold start
g.. Hold-up time: 17ms at 115VAC or 230VAC, full load
h.. Over Voltage Protection: +5V: 5.5V~7.0V; +3.3V:3.76V~4.3V; +12V &
+12V2: 13.4V~15.6V
i.. Over Load Protection: 110~160% of max load
j.. Over current Protection: +3.3V: 55A (max); +5V: 48A (max); +12V1 &
+12V2: 20A (max)
k.. Over Temperature Protection: Operating Ambient 10ºC~40ºC, Storage
Ambient -40ºC~70ºC
l.. Humidity:
a.. Operating: to 85% relative humidity, non condensing at 25ºC
b.. Storage: to 95% relative humidity, non-condensing at 50ºC
m.. MTBF: Greater than 100K hours at 70% of full rated load; 230VAC / 50Hz
input; 25ºC ambient
n.. EMC: EN55022 Class B, EN61000-4-2 Class B, EN61000-4-3 Class A,
EN61000-4-4 Class B, EN61000-4-5 Class B, EN61000-4-6 Class A, EN61000-4-8
Class A, EN61000-4-11 Class B, FCC Part 15 & Part 2, CNS 13438 Class B
o.. Safety: Approval UL, cUL, TÜV, CB
p.. Dimension: W150 x H86 x D140 (mm)
Connections:
a.. 1 x 20/24-pin Mainboard
b.. 1 x 4-pin P4
c.. 2 x 6-pin PCI Express
d.. 4 x SATA
e.. 7 x 4-pin Molex
f.. 2 x 4-pin FDD
g.. 1 x Fan Monitor
and I'm thinkin why should I pay $100 for a Nvidia certified psu when the
one for $89 will work just as well. I need your imputs on this and anyone
who is using this psu, what do you think of it ?. problems etc. Also I need
to know if the 20/24-pin mainboard connection from the psu is conpatable
with the K8N Neo4 Platinum.. Your prompt replies will be appreciated.

Thanks

I think you should go for a power supply which has also a -5V.
Some MB's have had problems with on-board sound because of missing
-5V. I think the SLI is one of them.

I know this is an old Thread but 've been trying to figure out about useing a PSU without -5v on this board because the manual states that you must use a PSU w/-5v.It'll run without it but will it hurt anything?And why exactly it is needed bugs the crap out of me as MSI couldn't even give me an answer.Hope this is seen and answered.Thanks.
