I am planning to replace my unclocked Sempron 140 (Athlon II X2 4400e now) to a Phenom II x4 955.
I have a power supply and on its label, it says 270W (on the left column box) and 360W (on the right Column box). But on the right most column it says 600W(Max). I do not know which one says its total power output or something.
But there is a label on top that says "Model: 600W - P4" with the logo of AMD and an Intel logo. So I am assuming that it gives 600W.
Its physical size measures 5.5 inches x 6.5 inches.
I'm starting to have fear that my power supply will not be able to support the Phenom II X4 955 processor and the Radeon 6750 hd at the same time because on the AMD Website, the Radeon 6750 HD has a requirement of 450W. Does this mean it will blow up?
Forgive me if I lack information or if I gave the wrong ones. I am not an expert on these stuff. You are the only ones that can analayze it properly.
BTW, does the Phenom II x4 955 still exist in the market? I cannot see it's current price here in the internet.
You need to change the Power Supply, upgrade it to atleast 400w for a fine working. Otherwise some of your computer components won't get sufficient power and become unusable until you upgrade your PSU.
P.S: Nothing's gonna blow they'll just won't work due to insufficient power. Don't worry
For a system using a single Radeon HD 6750 graphics card AMD specifies a minimum of a 450 Watt or greater power supply. The power supply should also have a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 23 Amps or greater and have at least one 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connector.
If this is your power supply model then you should have no problem with your upgrade.
