yeah you want to use an 80 plus PSU, they use less electricity compared to the one you have and the higher the rating the better such as 80 plus gold is the best 80 plus silver and 80 plus bronze are all good
if it just says 80 plus then it is just more efficient than normal ones
its MINI-itx lol those things are built to sip power, my gaming rig would pull at least 600w if not more with its stuff in there and I plan to cross fire so that would pull maybe 850 w at the socket when I do
Im using it on my via machine, since when i figure out my netwrking issues i will be doing foldig@home for toms hardware team either12 or 24 hours a day... I want to kind out how much power that takes. When i had it running yezterday for 35mins it usex up 0.01 kwh... Can someone figure out how many kwhs that is in a day? The wierd thing is that it only drwas 25-35w when on and a whooping 2w whn off.
