    Insanely low quality, and with only 16a on the 12v rail is maybe the equivalent of a 280 watt psu

    PSU says that 30 amps on 12 v rail wich = 360 watts ! ....
  5. There will be only one way you can possibly connect it. They are 'keyed' to only fit a certain way.
  6. Do you have a link or model number of the PSU so we can check it for you?

    Codegen 550 watt ! the sticker on psu says 30 amps on 12v rail
  9. Does it say anything else about +12V? Like: Combined load of xxx yyy zzz shall not exceed... ?

    Nope just 12 volt 30 amp
  11. And no model number on the data plate?
    Makes it hard for us to check to make sure it's not of those models with a 'liar label'.

    Nope just codegen 550 watt with no numbers etc ! i know weird ... The psu was cheap like 30 bucks .. so what ya say will ir work or no ? or i must buy 24+8 psu ?
  13. If the label is correct 30Amps +12V is enough for your system. It should work 'OK'.

    I went by this

    Even if it says 30a doesn't mean it could actually do it.
    That would the equivalent of a budget grade 430 watt psu, and it's still a Codegen so doesn't really matter, they are lower than budget grade

    If it can do what the label says, yes, more than sufficient, I just don't trust the brand
