I thought the psu might be at fault. Its an older model, I wanted to upgrade the core hardware and hoped that the psu could handle it. It's a thermaltake purepower rated at 480W. I believe theres only one 12V rail at 18A.
I have been trying to understand how the psu works because no one has given me a straight answer. If I were to upgrade do I need a PSU with one large rail at 30-40A or would 4 rails at 18A be able to supply the required 26A??
Does it someone share the amps between rails? (If the rails can share amps I figured this psu has enough wattage to go around.)
What psu would you recommend?
