Okay i just want to know how i can know if a PSU is good or bad. I know that Corsair, Silverstone, Antec... Makes great PSUs but what is the diffrent between a good 500W psu and a bad 500W psu : )?
I currently run almost unknown brand named "Titan" i don't remember the model of it. (im not home this weekend) and i can't even find it on google o.0... it says output is max 560w.. but i have no idea if it's "Good" or "Bad"
I am thinking of upgrading my CPU to a AMD Phenom II 1055T because my CPU bottlenecks the GPU in almost any game i play.. i was thinking about overclocking the 1055T to the highest clock speed i can reach with the NorthQ 3580 cpu cooler.. but im really not sure if my psu can handle it.. im not even sure if it can handle my current system /:
System at the moment:
Asus M4A78 Pro Am2+
AMD Phenom 8400 x3 @ 2.52 Ghz
ATi 4870 1Gb 800/1080
2x 320GB Raid0 sata hdds
1x 500GB IDE hdd
1x DVD/RW drive
1x 120mm fan
2x 80mm fans
NorthQ 3580 watercooler with 120mm fan.
well the best way to find out the difference is to look through reviews.
all do a good job on PSU reviews.
cheaper PSU also tend to rate their power as peak rather then continuous. they will skip out on 12v power that powers your CPU & GPU. they also test their PSU in cooler temps like 20-30c rather then warmer and realistic temps 40c+.
Yes there is good watts and bad watts sort o speak. The better psu companies do a better job with efficiency, as well as stability, especially when a particular psu is under heavy load and the temperature of the unit rises. Lower end psu's just can't hold a candle to overall stability, and consistency of electrical current under load and temperature increases.
The company win make that psu for lc power is huntlkey which is not too good .google Them.but to really know what a good one is,is the freedon of info.you didn't know its made by huntkey but there are sources that you can look for.but bottom like huntkey has a terrible rep.
