My system : Mainboard : Asus M2n-e
Cpu : AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ 2GHz Windsor Skt AM2 Box
Vga : Gainward GeForce GTS 450 512MB DDR5 128-bit
HDD : Western Digital 640 GB 7200 rpm SATA-II 32 MB Caviar Black
Ram : 4 x KingMax 1GB DDR2 800MHz CL5
Power Supply : Antec SU380 >> http://www.silentpcreview.com/article592-page1.html

I want to upgrade my Mainboard,cpu and memory ram to:

CPU : Intel Core i5 3470 3.20GHz box
Mainboard : Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3V
Ram : Corsair Vengeance LP 8GB DDR3 1600MHz CL10


My question is if the power supply can still handle the upgrade,i must say that i`m using the power supply since 2007 , thank you

Power consumption will probably be about the same
PSU is plenty for the spec but it's an entry level unit that I'd be looking to replace after 5 years of use

hey , i stressed my system a bit with furmark , and in the meantime i was monitoring my PSU with Hardware monitor , i`ll upload an image with the results , should those voltages worry me? i mean i have no stability issues , my pc works like a charm , even with cpu 100% and gpu at 70 degrees for 10 mins :D

11.4v is the bottom of the spec, those readings say it's time for a new psu
Not big on software voltage readings, but yeah, I'd be concerned enough by that 12v reading to want to double or triple check
Check the bios reading and motherboard software if you don't have a DMM

in Bios i got the next results :

Vcore - 1,27 V
3.3V - 3.20 V
5V - 5.10 V
12V - 12.24

The thing is i dont have any stability problems , my pc never freeze or something like that , i`m just worried because i`m planning to buy a new cpu , motherboard and memory ram , i think they will use same power supply with what i`m having now on my system but aniway want to be sure

thank you very much for your time , i Tested on A molex with a Voltmeter and the results are:

4.95 V on +5V
11.8 V on +12V

Those measurements i took while i was stressing the pc with furkmark

So all Voltage software measurements Sux

Antec Still Rulls after almost 6 years of usage
