Antec Neo 12v Rails.....

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys....This is my 1st post at this great forum....


Have had the setup in sig for a month now and am starting to go round in circles....O.....fine one day, crashing the next.

This is where I`m at : Components in sig are in Lanboy case..no extras...Have opted for fresh install of xp after reading these forums for the last 3 days (great info)...OCZ in orange slots,2.8v only change from optimized defaults...

Can sometimes get thru xp set-up,sometimes not...Can run Memtest at boot-4hrs last night-no errors.

Cut to the chase...Am starting to think it might be my Neo...specs on label state:

DC Output +12v 18A

+12v 15A

Max Load 32 A


This is right on the money going by PSU threads here.


My Question?

The Neo has modular cables-disconnect the ones you don`t require- it has a bank of 4 outputs and an output on its own (+ 1 fan only header)....

Can anyone identify/inform me which headers I should be using to ensure I am getting both 12v rails? Or am I barking up the wrong tree?

Thanx in advance

davidhammock2000.....hmmm with the antec neo the p4~molex connector is not seperate from any other group of cables....from what I can see you just use one of the molex on the loom....

To Clarify : 1x 24 pin to MB

1x4 pin to MB

. 1x molex to MB

1x fdd pwr to MB

I have the molex and fdd pwr on seperate headers from psu. From what I understand, the p4 connector isn`t molex, its 4 pins in a square grid...

Am plodding along, still getting errors loading xp.....will go back to PATA 200gb and try again

Well, I am further down the track...

Swapped out ocz Ram for Corsair Value Select ddr400 1gig and am having no problems...atm....don`t think it was psu after all...

Will do forum search (again) and see what I can come up with.

Is this -ocz- Ram worth it?
