A 420W with only 10A on the 12V ???

You're sure it's that low and that it only has 1 12V rail ?

what is the model number start with psh or psb

"Blueberry," hmmm, never heard of it. That claimed wattage, "420W," also smacks of Apevia, a known purveyor of PSU-shaped objects. Like the Apevia, it also has the -5V rail, which was obsolete years ago. Sorry to say, but it appears to be a piece of Chinese junk not suited to power a computer. Oh, it might be fine for internet surfing or even movie watching, but load that system down with a few hours of gaming and watch the sparks fly. A quality 350W-400W PSU would easily handle your system. On a budget, I'd suggest anything built by Seasonic (including some Antec, Corsair, and XFX), Antec Earthwatts, or newer FSP, such as the Antec VP-450.

Wow, thats one of the worst psu's i have ever seen. :ouch:  ( didn't see that much, but still ) It's very old i guess seeing how the amps are distributed over the rails.

I wouldn't wanna have that in my system, specially not with a dedicated gpu.

Thats really a bad company for selling this.

I got 400w dual rail PSU and it has 10a on +12v and i'm running 6670 on it.. never had problems..

10 x 12 = 120watts..

Should be enough for a 6670.

If you don't have any problems, then what's the problem?
September 19, 2012 5:13:05 PM

Regor, what's your other +12V rail? You say you've got two, but the OP just has the one.

s_g_m, he's asking if he might have a problem, and the definitive answer is "Yes!"
September 19, 2012 5:15:26 PM

^+!, just was going to ask that.
September 19, 2012 5:18:01 PM

@jtt283 both rails are 10a

If IMNICEE has only a single rail.. then yeah

_______________

If he only has a single rail then it's only 266 watts...

+5v x 20 = 100
+3.3v x 14 = 46.2
+12v x 10 = 120
Total = 266.2

If we add another 120 then = 386 watts.

@IMNICEE Check this out.. i think you have one like this..

Blueberry 420w psu

yeahh.. it's a single rail..

I have similar PSU (China made) and it's rated at 500w but it can only draw 200+ watts.. overrated

Better replace as soon as possible with a branded/quality one.

My PSU is also crap korean made.. but better than the chinese crap, but soon i will replace it when the time i will have enough budget.. I've been using it for 6 months now..
____

I don't know why those PC store gave you a crappy PSU..

Maybe to destroy/burn your PC parts and soon you will comeback on that store and buy new parts?? and after that, they will give you another crappy psu after buying new parts.. money money yeah yeah..

(Sorry for my english, but i have a point)
September 19, 2012 5:49:56 PM

September 20, 2012 4:37:58 AM

Oh, then you need antec earthwatts 600
or larger switching supply.
It pays for itself by saving electricity.
