Power Supply problem... PLZ HELP!!! Tags: Homebuilt Systems Product Last response: July 21, 2012 11:02 PM in Systems Share tl49 July 21, 2012 9:04:03 PM I bought corsair 650tx from the newegg... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... It was on promo with rebate... so i thought it would be reliable product at reasonable price... But when I put them on to my new computer, it turned on led on motherboard. However, when i press start button it didn't work with odd smell(maybe it's normal for new one i'm not sure).. so i unplugged PSU immediately. After i checked every other lines are good to go and tried again, this time it made pop(loud) sound. After that i decided not to try again... luckily my parts seems not damaged at all. So, I put my old PSU which is 250w and everything works perfectly fine.. Now, i'm using this computer with 250w with no GPU (radeon 7850) on it. After this happening, i decided to refund this one and go to offline store (fry's) to buy new one. I'm thinking about this one from fry's http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... it's only 500w, but i think it would be plenty for 7850 and phenom II x4 (no oc, Sli, Cross). Questions: 1.Antec 500w seems double rail unlike to corsair 650tx single rail one, what's different between them? is it bad choice?? 2.What should i look carefully to buy power supply?? Is there any compatibility?? 3.Also, do you guys think that my corsair 650tx was DOA product?? or it's just compatibility problem?

Antec's fine too. m 0 l SR-71 Blackbird a b B Homebuilt system July 21, 2012 11:02:54 PM The Corsair is a way better PSU , grab another one. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
