  1. When I game with hardware monitor running I've noticed my 650 watt psu's 12 volt reading drops to 11.53 volts at times and the highest it reads is 11.97 volts. It has been like this almost since new which is 4 years ago. It's a LSP Ultra psu.The reason I'm asking about this now is sometimes when I oc only to 4.3 the pc goes into a no boot mode (fans start then stop but wont enter bios until I reset cmos ). Any opinions on this or could it be another problem ???
  2. i'm in the process of building a prusa mendel i2 printer and have planned on using an atx power supply, and from what i understand i need about 500 watt single 12v rail psu to run it comfortably (with a heated bed and prospects of dual extrusion), now as a performance pc builder i have it stuck in my mind i need a quality psu, active pfc, reputable brand, modular would be nice. the arduino mega is by no means a pricey piece of equipment but should i spend 60-70 bucks for a good psu when the board can be had for 12? or should i do like everyone else and get the cheapest thing that says 500 on it tell me what you think
  3. This is my PSU:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139034 My choices of UPS:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16842102134 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16842111027 CyberPower-900 watts-2 minutes at full load,Tripp Lite-940 watts-4 minutes at full load. Question is does the CyberPower's pure sine wave support(?!?!) cover the less backup time?Will it really make a difference and protect my PC?Or should I not worry about that and go for the more backup time.

  4. need some help. Building my first Bit Fenix rig but am stuck. This plug comes off the 24 pin connector on its own thin cord. the 24 pin connector is already plugged in. The 8 pin board connector is already plugged in as well. Where do I plug this thing in? its a seasonic 760 platinum power supply. I can't find anywhere on the Asus Maximus Impact for it to go. I searched everything online but no luck. what is this mystical PSU cord thing and where does it go? thanks guys. you can see the little cord coming off the 24 pin connector here as well.
  5. okay everyone if I have done my calculations correctly between the my 1250 watt supply the rest of the electronics and light in the room 2000 watts is going to be coming through the socket correct e if I'm wrong the fact its dc current coming to the parts since its ac current being drawn from the wall I would need a 100 amp fuse in the box right? 1250 watts X 8%= 1400 watts then a hundred watt light bulb and the two laptops modem box carrying the phone and cable equipment and modem/router. Figure 2000 watts to be safe. which is irrelevant since a 60 wouldn't be enough. So anyway we would need to be using enough of a fuse to cover 2000 watts in the socket?

(Generated by PCPartPicker 2013-06-02 14:20 EST+1000) I've recently updated my system with a new PSU, Graphics Card and Ram. Everything else in this list was happily running until a few days ago when it randomly shut off. I assumed it was my old PSU as I'd had some trouble with it before and it was due for an upgrade anyway. I tested that the PSU was powering on the system (minus the graphics card) before installing it and everything appeared to be fine. I didn't actually test it with a monitor though. After installing everything in the case except for the graphics card I decided to boot up the system to remove my old drivers before installing the 7970. However, the system restarted after less than a second. Upon showing something on the monitor I was informed that there was a CPU over voltage error and was given the option to go to the bios to change my settings. I reset everything to defaults and tried again. This time the computer restarted roughly twelve times before I switched it off manually. I tried again only to be told that in addition to there being a CPU over voltage error that Surge Protection had been enabled to protect my motherboard from a faulty PSU. So far I've considered that either the CPU, motherboard, PSU or some combination of all of them is at fault and that I will have to return something or everything. What am I looking at here? Is everything dead or can I salvage something? Thank you for your help, I'm kind of freaking out here. I really appreciate any thoughts you may have, even if you're not 100% sure.
  7.

  8. Hello, I just bought the Phenom II x2 555 BE although it should have been a x4 955. The Phenoms on the stores are all out of stock(some phased out) and this x2 555 BE is the only remaining one in stock. As soon as I get over the warranty limit, I'm planning to unlock it. But I wish to know if the PSU and mobo will make it through. Right now I have an unlocked Sempron 140(unlocked to Athlon II x2 4400e) and I've been using this for almost two years. These are the mobo and video card specs Mobo: Biostar A780L v6.1 http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/introduction.php?S_ID=472#dl VC: AMD Radeon HD 6750 1GB 2GB DDR2 PSU: A generic 600W Now, if I unlocked Phenom II x2 555 Black Edition which I believe results into a Phenom II x4 955, will one of these PSU suffice for the unlocking of 3rd or fourth core? FSP Hexa 500W http://pcx.com.ph/components/power-supplies/fsp-hexa-he500-eff-80-500w.html Antec Neo http://pcx.com.ph/components/power-supplies/antec-neo-eco-520w.html I'm really intrigued by the Assassin's Creed 3. Most people who have high end rigs complain about low fps in Boston but my cousin who has Phenom II x2 555 played it well. He has a GeForce 440 gfx card. Thanks for your time and also, I am open to suggestions. But please understand that I am not that rich to replace everything above I have right now. But am already looking forward to it once I really have the money and if I need to upgrade.
  9. It seems that the Phenom II x2 555 can be unlocked to a Phenom II x4 B65 processor the vid: I have this set-up: Motherboard: Biostar A780L Processor: AMD Sempron 140 unlocked to Athlon II x2 440 Graphix Card: AMD Radeon HD 1GB 6750 RAM: 2GB DDR2 A generic 600W Power supply which I want to replace with a branded FSP Hexa 520W Here is what is shown in cpu-z based on my PC: http://s8.postimage.org/6u4ypgk91/Untitled.png Originally, I am planning to buy a Phenom II x4 955. But I found out that it has been phased out for almost a year now. All I have found so far are Athlon x2 dual cores. I can't believe it. Right now, I have a Sempron unlocked to Athlon II x2 440. So, I though that unlocking Phenom II x2 555 to Phenom II x4 B65 is possible for my mobo provided with the PSU. But I want to hear from you guys especially about safety measures. I am a newbie here but I am aware of the possible consequences that I can face after unlocking. The unlocking of Athlon II x2 440 came from just a video turorial. I hope you understand. If it's not really recommended to unlock it, will the Phenom II x2 555 alone will suffice for playing AC3? I am also staggering for the low fps issue.
  10. I am planning to have a Phenom II x4 955 to replace the unlocked Sempron140(Athlon II x2 4400e now). Will it be fine to combine the Phenom II x4 and the AMD Radeon 6570HD at the same time with this power supply? Note: My power supply label says this except for that my current says 4A and 7A for the Frequency it says 50-60 Hz. From the looks of it, mine seems not to be branded. http://cdn2.sulitstatic.com/images/2012/0717/202645338_2026343563352d59f2aa1f5803da4d47932134a6efbbd2f5a.jpg Do you think this power supply is enough for replacement? Or replacement is no longer needed? http://pcx.com.ph/components/power [...] -700w.html Cheers.
