I recently completed a build and I am starting to think my PSU is not enough. Been getting errors and random shutdowns along with various boot errors. I have tried everything and still having issues here and there. Problem seems to have gone away temporarily after removing lots of RAM but I am waiting for it to creep up any day now. Running a OCZ 650W bronze certified PSU. Running Windows 7 home premium. Would like to push to Ultimate to possibly take advantage of 32 gb but that I know would be more of a drain on my PSU.
16GB g. skill ripjaws x (2x8GB)
Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo heatpipe
Radeon 6950 GPU
WD Velociraptor GPU
Corsair 60gb SSD
Samsung Optical Drive (Not worth going into specs)
ASUS p9x79 mobo
Thermaltake Armor MX tower
Basic optical mouse, keyboard ect.
Is that enough or is it going to be the major cause of my issues?
A 6950 only needs about 12 - 15 amps. Even with 32 GB of RAM, your present PSU has power to spare.
I agree it should be fine, also an upgrade to ultimate would not put more drain on the psu...
