More about which
  1. I would go CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (3 x 2GB) DDR3
    1600 CL7 Triple Channel Kit, but I don't see in your link
  2. thank you
    and i want to tell you that i have a problem during playing crysis 2 that my computer suddenly shuts down at a certain point in the game without any warnings and reboots again

    is this due to low memory or low power
  3. Yes I see your psu 460, minimum requirement for gtx460 + I7 x58 mobo is 500W, your psu can cause that problem. Don't try oc you had limited power !
    Also check cpu temp warning , try disabled it
  4. my cpu temp at load may reach 70c
  5. 70C still fine for stock cooler , if want cool go bios :
    - disabled smart fan cpu
    - disabled cpu temp warning
    Or use aftermarket cooler but need money :D
  6. did you mean that it is not an overheating problem

    also i forget to tell you that there is a squeaking noise coming from the psu
  7. fulload I7 70C still fine .. Some people can reach to 75C , low memory is not issue , I sugesst get aftermarket cooler and get psu more watt. Than you buy new ram .. Maybe next you can upgrade ram size.
    And you can try my trick in above :)
  8. ok what is your minimum recommendations for psu wattage
  9. Antec eartwatt 500W is good and cheaper
    If you have more budget can see xfx, corsair, seasonic, ocz.
  10. these are available for me to buy

    HEC Cougar 700W PSU

    Antec Neo Eco 620C 620W PSU

    Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus 650w PSU

    Cooler Master Extreme Power 650wt PSU

    Thermaltake TR2 700W TR-700P PSU

    Thermaltake Litepower 700W PSU

    HEC (Gamma) 600wt PSU

    Cooler Master GX750 750w PSU

    Cooler Master GX650 650w PSU

    Seasonic J Series 750W 80 PLUS GOLD Certified PSU
  11. Seasonic 750W 80 plus gold .. He he you can use it for SLI gtx 460
    Antec Neo 620W give more power for your system
  12. I sense that seasonic psu is very old and outdated
    see the picture

    www.egprices.com/product.php?id=9454
  18. it is too expensive
  19. Ha ha ha yea. Expensive , I out of idea in egprices
    I suggest for choose : antec neo 620W, or more higher is thermaltake toughtpower 775W because I saw review .. For thermaltake litepower or TR good too but still better toughtpower .. Goodluck
  20. so antec neo 620w or thermaltake litepower 700w
  21. Thermaltake TR2 700W ! That psu oem by CWT same with corsair

    No it's not.

    The OEM for the Thermaltake TR-700P is FSP Group.

    The Antec Neo ECO 620C uses Seasonic as its OEM. It uses the same design as the Seasonic S12II Bronze SS-620GB.

    For a system using a single GeForce GTX 460 graphics card a minimum of a 450 Watt or greater power supply with a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 24 Amps or greater and with at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors is recommended.

    For a system using two GeForce GTX 460 graphics cards in 2-way SLI mode a minimum of a 620 Watt or greater power supply with a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 37 Amps or greater and with at least four 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors is recommended.

    Don't focus on the power supply's wattage. The most important specification to meet is the combined +12 Volt continuous current rating. If your current 460 Watt power supply's combined +12 Volt continuous current rating is less than 24 Amps or if there is high noise and/or ripple on the DC Output rails you will get the problems you're having.

    I haven't seen any reviews, done by reputable PSU test reviewers, on either power supply.
  23. thx
    so i must buy now antec neo 620w or my cooler master 460w is sufficient and not risky,

    and what is the risks that could happen ?

    note: i have tried your trick and run crysis 2 in window mode to monitor temp and everything went fine . also there was no noise comming from psu during playing the game ,so what is your diagnosis?

    What is the model number of your Cooler Master 460 Watt power supply unit?

    Cooler Master Real Power Pro RS-460-ASAA-D3
    Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus RS-460-PCAR-A3/-PCAP-A3
    Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus RS-460-PMSR-A3/-PMSP-A3
    Cooler Master Elite Power RS-460-PSAR-J3/-PSAP-J3

    I know that the Extreme Power Plus Series and the Elite Power Series are known for not being able to deliver their labeled power. Also the DC Output quality from both of these series are not that good or very poor or even out of specification.

    I also notice that none of these Cooler Master 460 Watt power supplies have at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors required by your graphics card.

    With poor voltage regulation low voltages can cause instability and high voltages, over time, can damage hardware.

    Unnecessary electrical noise and ripple can cause premature failure of sensitive components in a number of different PC subsystems.

    Here's a reputable review from Hardware Secrets on the Cooler Master Elite Power 460 W:

    The noise from the PSU, that you're hearing, is most likely coil whine.
  29. is it normal or abnormal and need immediate replacement?

    No, it's not considered normal. It's a defect.

    If it's still under warranty have it replaced by the manufacturer.
  31. thank you for your help , i will take my pc to the vendor and see what they will do for it .
  32. please help , i have tested my 460w psu on a different pc ( p4 cpu , gt240 vga) and no noise is heard from the psu even with playing gta iv ,

    then i tested it again on my pc but with differnet vga (i7 930 cpu , 8400gs vga) and the noise is heard again ,

    so what should i do now

    ( i don't think that i7 930 with 8400gs consumes more power than the p4 with gt240)
  33. Are you sure the sound is coming from the power supply unit? Try muting the sound in Windows and confirm where the noise is originating from.
  34. yes i am sure
