PSU questions Tags: Power Supplies Components Last response: December 25, 2009 7:50 PM in Components Share quattro04 December 25, 2009 2:27:45 PM First, let me clarify that this build will not be used for gaming. I have a HEC Winpower 550 psu. It has 2 12V rails @ 28 and 20 amps and has 2 ATX12V 4 pin. I’m upgrading my system to an I7 1366 platform. Core I7 920 I already have these parts: EVGA x58 LE OCZ 6GB 1333Mhz Will be using these from my old rig: GeForce 8500GT WDC 640GB black Seagate 160GB 4 Cooler Master R4 120mm fans Now for the questions: The motherboard needs an 8 pin ATX12v connector. Is it the same as having 2 ATX12v 4 pin? Can my PSU power my rig? I will upgrade my PSU to a Corsair 650TX but I’m really tight on budget right now so it will be purchased on February. I might upgrade my video card to a 5670 or 5750 but only after I upgrade my PSU.

So my PSU can handle an I7 system, thats a relief. Also do you recommend that I overclock my system with my current PSU? m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
