CORSAIR Builder Series CX430 V2 430W support 6870? Tags: Power Supplies Support Corsair Components Last response: May 24, 2011 12:36 PM in Components Share ahtze May 24, 2011 4:53:52 AM Anyone know if it runs the card? It has 28A on 12V rail. My old PSU 450watts peak is 18A on 12V rail and I think it wont support the card. More about : corsair builder series cx430 430w support 6870 DXRick May 24, 2011 6:06:05 AM 550W is the minimum. Silvune a c 87 ) Power supply May 24, 2011 9:34:07 AM It doesn't have enough PCIe connectors and has a very small number of peripheral connectors, so if you did use peripheral to PCIe adapters you wouldn't have many left for fans/optical drives, etc. So I'm going to say no.

Depending on the CPU, that's 8 - 10 amps. Figure 2 - 3 amps for a hard drive, an optical, and two or three fans. With a "typical" system you would be running the 12 volt rail at over 90% of capacity. Not a good idea. Get a larger (500 - 550 watt) PSU. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources : ForumCORSAIR Builder Series CX430 V2 430W support 6870 ?
