Get the answer Silvune a c 87 ) Power supply May 29, 2011 7:51:50 PM Based on that review it's not something I would go out and buy, but it's not something that I would go out and replace if I already had it, unless you are having specific problems with it. Obviously the voltage regulation could be better but it is in spec. It certainly has enough power for a system with two 5850s. The distribution of the 12V rails doesn't look like it's a problem either. davcon a c 270 ) Power supply a c 104 à CPUs May 29, 2011 9:17:07 PM I agree with Silvune your psu should be fine to power another 5850. Silvune a c 87 ) Power supply May 29, 2011 11:24:46 PM Cougar actually have about 7/8 different 700W PSUs, so it would be helpful to know which model Mokkalokka has. MokkaLokka June 6, 2011 1:23:33 AM Thanks for the replies. Well, the thing is that I bought my computer as a final product - so I do not know the specific details about the PSU, other than the ones I wrote. How would I be able to check what model I have in my machine? Silvune a c 87 ) Power supply June 6, 2011 10:09:28 AM You would have to open the case up and try to find the label on the PSU.
