  1. How old is that Cooler master Extreme Power PSU?
    And is that the full & correct model name?
  2. Your PSU?
    COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power Plus RS700-PCAAE3
  3. Its 4 weeks old
  4. Then the model I listed is probably the one you have.
    It's data plate lists 52Amps +12V power which should do nicely.

    But some CM PSUs are known to have trouble living up to the data plate specs.
    Here is one reason we're concerned.
    A review of the 600W model: Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 600 W Power Supply Review
  5. Centre Com for Gamers spec sheet for that PSU is wrong.
    Efficiency is 80% and it has a single 12V 'rail'.
  6. True so what power supply do you recommend from

    Cause ill be getting sli soon and i guess ill have to buy a new psu
  7. It's not just having 2x PCI-e power connectors. There are ways around that shortage.
    I just have concerns that PSU might not be able to output its full rated power in all conditions, like the 600W model.

    I'll look around for a decent PSU on that site.
    Have you ever worked with the website?
  8. Im australian so...
  9. So is
  10. ohh sozz i just assumed every one is american
  11. Everyone IS a 'merican of course. ;)

    XFX ProSeries 650W Core Edition
    53Amp +12V power and 2 x 6-Pin, 2 x 6+2-Pin power connectors.
    right amount of power and right amount of connectors.
  12. Some lower prices on that PSU - check shipping charges to find the best deal:
    XFX 650W Core Edition
  13. i would say no your psu needs more grunt... and more 6 pin connectors...
    the above cosair unit is nice but i prefer a little more headroom so i would get a 750w model...
  14. Well thanks for the help, my current psu is *** for cable managment and its just not good enough so im gonna look for a good quality 750 wat or even ill just go complete overkill and get like 1000W so i dont have to worry if have enough power later on because i upgrade regulary. Im gonna buy that next month because im buying an ssd on friday
