PSU For ASUS EAHD4870 Tags: Graphics Cards Asus Configuration Graphics Last response: February 10, 2010 2:13 AM in Graphics & Displays Share parimal_85 February 9, 2010 7:38:01 AM hi My Config: AMD Phenom II X4 955BE ASUS M4A78-E 4GB 800Mhz DDR2 RAM ASUS EAH4870 1G I got 500W VIP Gold SMPS. I am facing Motherboard overheating problem (65 C) ..... Is it normal.......No overclocking? 500W PSU is enough for this config? Regards More about : psu asus eahd4870 hell_storm2004 a b U Graphics card February 9, 2010 8:50:56 AM Well i would say you need a Corsair VX550W PSU. HD4870 is very power hungry card. You would definitely need a 500W PSU and please don't get a Cooler Master PSU (warning you before-hand). Looks from your current PSU, that you live in India. Is that guess correct? m 0 l jsc a b U Graphics card a b Ĉ ASUS February 9, 2010 10:52:55 AM Any good 500 - 550 watt PSU will work. I also favor the 550VX. But your PSU may be good enough. 65 C is high for a motherboard temperature and at the upper limits for CPU temperature. It is not high for a GPU temperature. Your PSU will not contribute much to your motherboard temps. And it's possible that all you need is a better case. Do your temperatures drop significantly if you take the side of the case off? How do you know which temperature is at 65 C? m 0 l Related resources Cooler Master 600W PSU + ASUS 280X a Good Idea? - Forum GPU & PSU question: How come ASUS built this system??? - Forum PSU for ASUS GTX 760 STRIKER - Forum PSU for Asus gtx 760 2gb oc - Forum will this psu be enough to power ASUS Radeon R9 270X DirectCU II TOP - Forum Can't find your answer ?

How do you know which temperature is at 65 C? Under load my CPU temp is around 45 C But Motherborad temperature reach 65 C. When I take the side of the case the The temp drops by 5 C to 8 C allows me to play 45 min more before temperature alarm fire. The temp. is detected by ASUS PROBE II. I think better cooling solution is the only way so please suggest good cooling solution. Regards m 0 l hell_storm2004 a b U Graphics card February 10, 2010 2:13:39 AM Dont trust that Asus Probe II. Download HWMonitor and check the temperatures. Check if your PSU is active PFC or not. Coz VIP made both types and the non-active PFC model sucks big time. If its not active PFC, ditch it immediately. Its not at all good. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SolvedWill my PSU run an ASUS GTX 750TI?
