I've got kind of a noob question . I'm getting a couple different answers about my PSU. I'm wanting to get a BFG GTX260 OC2. On there webite it says it requires a: 525W PCI Express®-compliant system power supply with a combined 12V current rating of 38A or more (Minimum system power requirement based on a PC configured with an Intel Core®2 Extreme QX9650 processor). I have an Antec Neopower blue 650W psu with three 12v rails at +19. If you add those you get 57 of course just curious if it works that way.
Some people say you can add all three together for total some say you can't. I just need a clarification since psu jargon is still a little new to me. Here is my system specs: Asus P5E, Q6600, 2 7,200 HDs, 8 gigs ram(ddr2 800), currently and EVGA 8600gt, and one combo drive. Any help clarifing wether I can use my PSU or not would be most helpful. Thanks
Max on that PSU is 52amps on 12v rail I believe. you should be fine with that one. Of course you can only use 19amps per rail. Most PSU's with multiple rails have a primary 12 volt section then break them into different rails, so you cant really just add all the rails together to get total amps but usually its close I believe.
Hey all, I got a question, that i'm sure has been answered, but I'm having trouble finding it. My new system is highly unstable. And I'm trying to figure out why.
I have as follows:
i7 core 930 2.8ghz
Corsair TX 850w PSU
EVGA GTX 470 Video Card
Corsair Dominator GT 6gb
1 x Western Digital Blue 64gb SSD (which holds my OS and main programs.)
2 x Western Digital Black Caviar 1.5TB hard drives for storage.
Most of the time, when I boot into windows, I get to the login screen, then when i type my password the circle spins and freezes and I have to reset and try again. Sometimes it will boot in, and sometimes it wont. I am wondering if this is a power issue, or driver issue. Or what is going on? I can't figure this out. Right now I only have my SSD hooked up and not my 2 Sata drives. I am having issues with them and am RMA'ing them.
