Yes. But only barely. Rather play safe and go for a 600W PSU and be good for a bit of future upgrades as well. Also, the brand you selected is a bit :/ , so rather go with a known brand like Corsair, Cooler Master, Thermaltake, Huntkey, etc. etc. Cheap brands don't last long and their efficiency SUCKS, so they are a big no-no for a gaming rig.

I would recommend 650W Thermaltake 80+ modular. Modular is so handy for neat cable management and good airflow in the case!!!

only way to know if a psu is good or bad is to professionally test it

535 watts is enough but some companies lie on psu's like taking a 250 watt power supply and putting on a 600 watt sticker

but if you want something safer

its a known good psu

A non-overclocked MSI R6870 Twin Frozr II will draw a maximum of 13.25 Amps from the +12 Volt rails.

The GP535B power supply unit that you have chosen is theoretically capable of powering your system.

What I've read about that PSU is that it is made by Sirfa/Sirtec.

CORSAIR for the win. And get a modular PSU, less cables in the way.

ko888 , ididnt mean GP535B , its old one , the New one ( that i am about to Grab is ) POWER GREEN 535B-US , full info : http://lioncomputer.ir/index.php?product_id=1644

NOW WHAT ?

The UL certification for the Sirfa GP-535B-US shows that it provides 25 Amps on each of its two +12 Volt rails.

What little information lioncomputer.ir shows for that power supply unit is almost useless. They should have posted a picture of the label that is stuck on the side of the power supply.

I'm in South Africa. I've heard about the brand, as was sceptical about it at first as well. But after some research into the matter, it seems quite few people who have bought it has been very pleased with the result. Still (as I mentioned in a different thread), I remain slightly sceptical, but from what I've heard it really is a good PSU, and it competes directly with the likes of Corsair, Thermaltake and Cooler Master in terms of build quality.

T's just what I heard... :D

Tell us your complete system if you really need help, anyway, i'd just don't like " chinese-like " brands, like SharkNet, Noganet, or that one, you may try something good like Corsair, Cooler Master, Antec, OCZ, Seasonic, etc..

535W can feed your system, but you will be limiting the PSU so much it might pop after a short while. This is why I recommended a stronger PSU earlier (seeing as how you are running a mammoth amount of HDD's).

If you put everything at full load, the 535W may not be strong enough to support it, damaging the PSU and possibly your entire system.

Thus, the 535W is NOT recommended.

Do not buy a POWER GREEN psu, it is an no-brand peice of crap, despite what your shopkeeper is telling you.

No-brand PSUs never provide the output stated on the box so "535W" is meaningless. You will probably only get 150W per 12V rail before it becomes unstable.

With the gaming hardware you have it will definitely cause your PC to run unstable and may eventually damage your motherboard / ram by sending power spikes.

The PSU is the most important part of your computer and you need to select a good brand.

The hardware you have probably draws about 300W at full load, so you certainly don't need more than a 500W PSU as some have suggested, but you do need a quality PSU, not a cheap one.

Good brands:
Antec
Enermax
CoolerMaster
Corsair
OCZ

This PSU would be my recommendation for your setup: http://lioncomputer.ir/index.php?product_id=1477

Yes. This is why I recommended the Huntkey X7. You'd understand the value if you can pay R1,388 for a 900W modularized PSU. It falls in the 850W price range of brands like Corsair, Cooler Master, Thermaltake and Antec, none of them being modularized. It looks very good too. Complies to 80+ standards with a Silver award. Not too shabby, I'd say. Makes me pissed that I paid R1,100 for my Gigabyte ODIN 720 about a year ago.

Why don't you contact Lion Computer and ask for the detailed specifications that are printed on the label affixed to the power supply?
