i have now a replaced d201glya board because the last board became unstable after 8 months of use. i was using a generic 300w psu. in my new board now i am planning to use my old case astone enforcer with a psu of 500w. i am wondering is this is ok or not because it may damage my board again due to high wattage. your help is highly appreciated.

it isn't recommended to use generic PSUs on a computer a bad PSU might result in instability of the computer therefore rendering it unusable for anything that requires ore CPU usage such as multitasking and gaming

what are you doing with this computer? if you got by on 300 then you probably don't need 500

that usually doesn't happen with a 300 watt PSU unless that too was a generic brand causing inconsistent power outputs to the components

i use it only for browsing, torrent download, chat, listening music. i'm not a heavy gamer as the board has been designed for simple and basic task. one thing i've consider is the power consumption if i run this machine 24/7.

i could possibly consider that it is caused by inconsistent power outputs. before i use d201glya i purchased a board with the intel atom but within one month the system become unstable and died. good thing i was able to RMA yet no stock then i upgraded to buying E2140 and an Asus P5N-MX board and it runs great.
