  1. I suppose we are but as previously mentioned if we knew your hardware and what you do with your PC it could be that a smaller unit would be suitable. No point in buying a 900VA unit if you don't need to.

    What I did today .......

    Swapping to what? Different ratios or something? The old transmission decided to turn into a pencil sharpener and ate my output shaft. A new close ratio box cost me $150. Clutch only has 20% left so I'll be replacing it while everything is out. It's your car really isn't it?
  4. You shouldn't continue using a PC during a power outage. The UPS is there to keep the supply "clean" at all times and allow time to close all files and safely shut down the PC either via the supplied UPS software or manually by the user when a power outage occurs. You're obviously going to have more than two minutes unless you really are using 900W at all times which I doubt (probably more like 300W which gives you 6 minutes).

    Test Drive - Sport Sedans

    That was probably just the thought of parting with the money?

    If you intend sticking with a single graphics card then 500W is more than enough. (Up it to 750W if you intend doubling up the cards). The Seasonic SSR-550RM currently at $85.99 on Newegg would be a great choice. Just stick to the mainstream manufacturers like Corsair, Enermax, XFX, Seasonic, etc, and you can't go wrong. Raidmax isn't a wise choice.

    What is this cord for?

    Looks like the device outputs [email protected] to the front of the PC for charging mobile phones.

    None so had to vote "Other".

    What is this cord for?

    The lead you've linked to shows three blacks and a red (0v & +5V) so not the same? If you've bought a genuine Seasonic power supply then I suggest somethings not quite right!

    What is this cord for?

    What's the model number of the power supply? I'd have to say that the lead you've shown isn't what's usually supplied by Seasonic.

    What is this cord for?

    Are you sure that's a genuine Seasonic lead? It looks nothing like I've seen before on a power supply. I'm using a Seasonic X-Series 760W and that certainly doesn't have that connector. Going of the wire colors it has +5VSB and +3V3 which is very strange?
