  1. I think your motherboard has a 20 pin connector (not sure though).. Anyway, in either case, the PSU must work fine.. Though if you can access newegg, i'll suggest you get this -

    or

    http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-CMPSU-400CX-400-Watt-Certified-compatible/dp/B001FXB7X0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=pc&qid=1277587123&sr=1-1

    The extra cost is really worth it..
  2. It's compatible (all newer PSUs should be compatible). It's a good PSU in that price range, but it really is old technology (I bought one several years ago) and not that efficient. If you can afford it, the Corsair CMPSU-400CX (80 PLUS Certified) would be a better buy.
  3. lol im upgrading from a 250 watt psu :lol: i think 430 watts is ok because i just want to power a radeon 4770 and a duel core amd athlon 4800 + processor. i dont think im going to overclock it any im just going to really play games on low res even tho it can support 1900 by 1200 becuase i dont like hih res idk why. but i just liked to know that it is compatible with my system thank you !!!!! :bounce:

    lol :pfff:

    430 watts would be fine, but it's junk

    The Corsair 400 mentioned above would also be fine for those specs, and has a $20 rebate at Newegg

  5. Actually the Corsair CMPSU-400CX can provide over 400W while the TR-2 is limited to 380W, but it's inexpensive.
  6. lol im 14 :na: i dont even know what a rebate is. i work and everything but i only buy whats needed useally not online
  7. mmm delluser that is a nice psu :o i think i just might check it out and if it is compatible with my mobo and hard drive ect. i will buy it thank you :D
  8. wo wo wait a minute lol ok so i dont really know about the whole 12 volt rail can someone plz explain what i need and what a 12 volt rail is, i know this is probly like the worst case of noob that youve ever seen but i need to know what i need to power my comp with that suggested corsair 400 watt psu. this is really confusing to me so help is very apreciated
  9. If you don't really know, then just take our advice and get the much better CMPSU-400CX. The 12V rail is used to provide power to the CPU, GPU, etc. Having stable voltages is important as it makes a computer more stable.
  10. :cry: i dont think the 4770 or the psu might fit because my case might be low profile, and it came with a 250 watt psu and i think thats all it will take
  11. It's easy to verify, but a 250W PSU isn't necessarily smaller than a 400W PSU. What case or PC do you have?
  12. umm ill have to check when i get back from florida probly will be back in 2 days :D
  13. Desktop, 7.2" (183mm) W x 17.5" (445mm) D x 14.5" (370mm) H chassis
  14. its an aspire 3100
  15. This is not a desktop case; it is a mini tower case. What's more important is to check the dimensions of the PSU.

    The PSU specs are: Industry Standard 250 Watt

    I may be wrong, but a standard size ATX PSU should fit.
  17. good im only goin to get that 400 watt it shouldnt be that much bigger oh and also my processor is running a little hot 48-54 c is that ok for a amd athlon 4800 + or is it too high?
  18. 48-54°C at idle or under load?
  19. playing company of heroes so id say like 85 % useage
  20. hey this might be a rookie question but what are artifacts because when ever i play games for maybe 1 and a half hours little squares show up when guns are firing or there are green dots in the background
  21. Then you know what artifacts are. Is your video card overclocked or is it overheating?
  22. umm i think its overheating but i was asking are those artifacts or is it like corruption or otherwise it gets to 102 c sometimes
  23. Artifacts are corruption.
  24. oh rofl i just feel stupid XD
  25. You shouldn't. However you need to improve cooling for your video card.
  26. ok ill check if the drivers are functioning properly
  27. it has nuthing to do with teh drivers. you need another fan blowing on the card.
  28. i have 4 fans in my case and airflow is good actually very good the case is always cold the air comeing from the psu fan and the misc fan is always cold and everything eccept the gpu is hot even the processor is cool
  29. You need to improve the GPU cooling. Which one do you have?
  30. dust in the gpu heatsink?
  31. i used compressed air to get all of the dust out and i clean the heatsinks a wile ago
  32. i have a gt 220 1 gig if thats what ur askin i cant really hear the fan on it but i assume its working and its new
  33. There are tools to check the fan and how fast it spins.
  34. lol rivatuner
