Will this Power Supply work with this motherboard setup?

Hello,

Just a quick question about a PSU working with a motherboard. I am 99% sure it will work but having another set of eyes doesn't hurt when it comes to building a system.

I am using a server motherboard.

http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/QPI/5500/X8DT3-LN4F.cfm

I will be equipped with 2 Quad core Xeon CPUs (E5504) and 12 Gigs of Ram ( 6 Gigs for each CPU )

I will be using an old Sound Blaster card in the PCI slot and a video card in the PCIeX16 slot. I Have not decided on the video card yet. For now, I will be throwing in an older GTS250

I'll be running an SSD for the boot drive and a 2TB for storage for now. Will most likely move to the onboard raid down the line

It will also house a sata DVD burner.

The only thing missing is the power supply.

Here is what I am thinking

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817338012

It has the 3 connections to the motherboard I need. 1x24 pin and 2x8 pin

It also has a connection for the video card power. 600 Watts should be enough to power this system.

Can anyone see any issues with this as the power supply?

Thanks

  1. Did you read the feedback on that PSU! Low quality with no 80+ certification and passive pfc (input voltage selector switch) http://www.endpcnoise.com/cgi-bin/e/faqpfc.html
  2. Ahhh, that I did not do. I was just happy to find a power supply that I could fit into a tower system that could power the board. Any suggestions on a reliable PSU or should I keep looking?

  4. Thank you very much for the posts.

    I had no idea they made an 8-pin Y cable

    I'm glad I waited to pull the trigger until I posted here.

    That FSP600-80PSA really looks good as well.

    Thank you
