GTX 660 +12v Amp requirement question
Dec 13, 2012, 11:09 PM
Quick question my brother is looking to get a GTX 660 which states it requires a 400w power supply with a minimum of 24a on the 12 v rail.
My question is he has 2 12v rails one with 16 amp and one with 18 amp. Does a single 12v have to exceed or match 24a or do you combine the 2?
Thats all I need to know wasn't for sure.
He has a 500w apevia power supply.

alright so just to be 100% sure the 18 amps and the 16 amps on the 2 seperate 12v rails would be ok for the 400w/24amp +12v power requirement?

It is not a good power supply.
Basic door stop material.
I would not trust it in my computer. it is a tier 5 unit.
