  1. That PSU is junk do not get it.. It only has 20Amps on the 12 volt rail its garbage.

    Look for a Corsair or Antec even if its a 400 watt Model of one of those it will actually produce more power then that ICute.

    Do you have a GPU picked out yet or you gonna use onboard graphics? This will effect your choice of PSU.
  2. ^+1. That PSU won't be cute when it blows up and takes the rest of your hardware with it. Get a quality PSU from Corsair, Antec, PC Power, OCZ, Seasonic or XFX.
  3. Hi,
    I will use onboard graphics.
    In the box is writen

    3.3V = 28A
    +5V =28A
    +12V1 = 20A
    +12V2 = 20A
    -12V = 0.8A
    +5Vsb = 2.0A

    Then mean it have 2 riel 20A each?
    not enaught for my system?
    Thanks so much for your help.

  4. It will power it but it is a no name PSU the quality is unknown a bad PSU can damage your hardware so it is very important to get a quality unit.

    Since you will be useing onboard graphics your system can be power on a lower wattage unit look for a corsair or Antec.

  6. Finally i did agood psu recommendation :( is now :)
  7. Thanks guys,
    I will follow your advice returning iCute PSU,
    Any way it can't fit in my Aerocool M40 case (made by www.icute.com.tw)
    I need a PSU 140 mm deep maximum, non management or the conectors must be located in the half right of the cable/management area;
    (Antec Signature have cables OK, but it's too long [16.26cm(D)].
    I will buy Corsair CMPSU-550VXUK or Seasonic S12II-620 Bronze
    I found many Corsair good review, but nothing about Seasonic S12II-620,
    Any one have or tested S12II-620 PSU,
    Thanks

    You can run a system using onboard graphics on a 250 watt PSU.
